Book News Annotation:

Waterman (American literature and culture, NYU.) writes a history of seminal 1970s New York punk band, Television. Beginning with their 1974 origin at CBGB's rock club, he follows them through the recording of their debut LP Marquee Moon and their 1978 breakup. He endeavors to tease truth from myth in terms of the bands history and interpersonal relationships. He also examines the relationship between the band, its members, and other notable players in the 1970s New York City punk scene. Waterman also gives his own thorough critical analysis of Marquee Moon. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
