"Paved the Way for Every Ambitious Rock Record to Follow"

"As founding fathers of the '70s New York City underground rock scene, among the first bands who played CBGB, Television found themselves sticking out even among the out crowd. They soon distinguished themselves as the math nerds of punk, and every burgeoning genre needs a math nerd.
"They were the King Crimson to hard rock's Led Zeppelin, Funkadelic to soul's Otis Redding."

Ron Hart at the Observer marks the fortieth anniversary of Television's Marquee Moon.
