Tom Verlaine: In Search of Adventure

Dave Schulps, Trouser Press, May 1978

IT HAS BEEN over a year since Television's debut album, Marquee Moon, and for the band's American fans most of that time has been a complete blank. After all, since the band's initial U.S. tour, supporting Peter Gabriel, TV has had next to no Stateside activity. Even the New York club circuit, which Television was instrumental in developing, has not seen the band during that time.
