Punk rock owes a lot to Television. It was Richard Hell and Tom Verlaine who walked into CBGB in early 1974 and convinced owner Hilly Krystal that he should allow them to bring their edgy brand of rock’n’roll to the bar on Sunday nights. This completely contravened the bar’s music policy, which was country, bluegrass and blues, but Hilly needed the traffic so he told them okay. That was the beginning of CBGB as Ground Zero for the birth of American punk. Marquee Moon, the band’s debut album, remains a master of guitar interplay.
