The band Television was one of the founding fathers of the 1970s New York punk scene, but instead of simplifying their sound as many of their contemporaries did, the group became guitar virtuosos.
Their debut album, Marquee Moon, became a defining record of the era.
Founding member and guitarist Richard Lloyd released a memoir earlier this year called Everything is Combustible: Television, CBGB’s, and Five Decades of Rock n Roll.
He’ll be in Detroit on Thursday, August 16, for a show at P.J.’s Lager House in Corktown.
Listen to CultureShift’s Amanda LeClaire talking with Lloyd about the music that shaped his early life and career.
