Television was one of the most creative bands to emerge from New York's underground scene of the mid-'70s, creating an influential new guitar vocabulary. While guitarists Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd liked to jam, they didn't follow the accepted rock structures for improvisation — they removed the blues while retaining the raw energy of garage rock, adding complex, lyrical solo lines that recalled both jazz and rock. With its angular rhythms and fluid leads, Television's music always went in unconventional directions, laying the groundwork for many of the guitar-based post-punk pop groups of the late '70s and '80s.

    Tight toy night, streets were so bright.
    The world looked so thin and between my bones and skin
    there stood another person who was a little surprised
    to be face to face with a world so alive.
    I fell.

    I knew it musta been some big set-up.
    All the Action just would not let up.
    It's just a little bit back from the main road
    where the silence spreads and the men dig holes.
    I start to spin the tale
