Chosen by NME

Tom Verlaine is very much the 'anti guitar player', always distancing his work from the conventional School Of Rock guitar-isms (see for example his 'no distortion' policy). On 'Marquee Moon''s Venus, Verlaine and Richard Lloyd unpick the song's counter melody with the sparseness of true pioneers. In a field of show-offs, Television showed us that less can be more.
