Description


Marquee Moon is the debut album by American rock band Television that was released on February 8, 1977. In the years leading up to the album, Television had become a prominent act on the NYC music scene, generating interest from a number of labels, eventually signing with a New York based major label, and recording the album at A & R Recording in September 1976. Marquee Moon was met with widespread acclaim and was hailed by critics as an original musical development in rock music. The critical recognition helped the album achieve unexpected commercial success in the United Kingdom, despite poor sales in the United States. Routinely placed among the most acclaimed music releases in history, it consistently features in professionally curated lists of top albums. For Marquee Moon, Tom Verlaine and fellow guitarist Richard Lloyd abandoned contemporary punk’s power chords in favor of rock and jazz-inspired interplay, melodic lines, and counter-melodies. The resulting music is largely hook-driven with complex instrumental parts, while evoking themes of adolescence, discovery, and transcendence through imagery in urban, pastoral, and nocturnal modes, including references to the geography of Lower Manhattan. Influenced by Bohemian and French poetry, Verlaine’s lyrics also feature puns and double entendres, intended to give the songs an impressionistic quality in describing his perception of an experience.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
