Television - Adventure
Television were part of the late-'70s punk nucleus that put New York's CBGB club on the map. Driven by Tom Verlaine's raw-nerve songwriting and both his and Richard Lloyd's guitar playing - dual strands of slashing hooks and cathartic riffs - their music is spare yet structurally complex, artistic yet unpretentious. Among rock's true innovators, Television put a new face on punk and influenced everything from New Wave to jam-rock. Adventure is the band's second album and the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut, Marquee Moon. Four of the songs, Foxhole, Ain't That Nothing, Careful and The Dream's Dream were older compositions from the band's live set.
