Television’s eponymous third album was originally released in 1992 and is now reissued on vinyl for the first time. Recorded after a 14-years hiatus, Television tends to be overlooked when assessing the band’s discography but the four members, Tom Verlaine, Richard Lloyd, Fred Smith and Billy Ficca, conjure up their personal and fascinating sound and the record’s many highlights match the peaks of their previous output.

After disbanding in 1978, following two essential albums such as the legendary Marquee Moon and Adventure, the four members of Television continued their music careers as solo artists, in the case of Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd, and through diverse collaborations. 14 years later, the original line-up reunited to record this third, eponymous, album. Often overlooked when compared to their first two LPs, Television’s 1992 comeback is another fantastic record, featuring songs such as ‘Call Mr Lee’, ‘1880 Or So’ ‘In World’ and ‘No Glamour For Willi’ which rank among the best of the band’s material. The guitar interplay between Verlaine and Lloyd is as mesmerizing and unique as ever, and the rhythm section of Fred Smith and Billy Ficca backs them up imaginatively and subtly. Unlike many other reunions, Television built on the band’s previous work and added to their stellar legacy.

Television is an American rock band, formed in New York City in 1973 and credited as highly influential and seminal. Television was part of the 1970s New York rock scene, along with musical acts like the Patti Smith Group, The Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell, and Talking Heads. Although they recorded in a raw manner similar to their contemporaries, minimalizing the use of studio techniques, sound effects and atypical instruments, Television's music was unique and technically proficient, defined by guitarists Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd.
