“See No Evil”
Marquee Moon / Elektra / 1977
This is a fun song to play while driving in a car with a full-sounding stereo system with good bass response.
Television is one of those bands that has influenced everyone from influential-in-their-own-right early New Wavers of the late ’70s through early ’80s to the back-to-basics garage rock revivalists of the early 2000s. “See No Evil” is a standout track in part because a lot of the jams on Marquee Moon are mellower and even sort of meditative, such as the title track. The album is recommended for anybody who digs leaner ’70s rock, alongside seminal semi-subterannean staples like Bowie, Roxy Music, Magazine, Brian Eno, The Modern Lovers, New York Dolls, Big Star, et cetera.
I keep coming back to seventies music whenever I start trying to spiritually ground myself again. I will definitely be sharing more Third Great Awakening decade music on this here blog.
