Song Of The Day - "Venus de Milo" by Television

Song Of The Day - "Venus de Milo" by Television from the album "Marquee Moon."

What new can be said about the group Television?  They were simply one of the most influential groups of the late '70s and this track is pulled from their debut magnum opus album. Nothing sounded quite like Television back in 1977 when this album came out with Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd weaving Jerry Garcia-esque guitar lines sifted through a haze of New York punk sensibility. I was fortunate enough to see Television when they reformed in 1992...they were still as potent as ever.
