Marquee Moon

Little Johnny Jewel

  • Artist: Television

  • From: Marquee Moon

Released in 1977, Marquee Moon had no equal. Its long instrumental breaks, featuring the clean interplay of guitarists Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd, along with Verlaine's simple poetry, offered a sharp contrast to the bombastic sounds of progressive rock and punk.
