Tremendous album

They should have been the biggest band of the 70s but life had other plans

Still sounds fresh

Probably Luna’s biggest stylistic influence

You misspelled Velvet Underground

Yes... but not lately. And most of the album is a throwaway.

Television is the link between VU and Luna


Anyways YMMV and that’s a-ok

That’s a cd which has some great bonus tracks …key like Little Johnny Jewel

A few years ago I found the US LP for 99 cents but no cover…Two decades ago the Argentine issue LP for a few bucks… cover is printed kind of weird which is cool

I think the key to Television is understanding they were the first


Before talking heads or Patti smith (who of course shacked up with Verlaine as part of her relentless sleep her way to the top campaign) or Ramones or Blondie… they put CBGB on map


They just didn’t release an album til after everyone else and by then history had moved on, even they had changed and they were left in the dust


When I listen to Verlaine I can totally hear where Patti Smith got a lot from…
