Watching Television this morning

Been hanging out over at The YouTube early this morning... going through videos that I put in my favorites but never watched for some reason, like this grainy rehearsal footage of Television circa 1974 ... I like the one commenter who says "Verlaine is like a trobadour from the asylum who has never washed his hair."

The lineup at this time:

Tom Verlaine — vocals, guitar
Richard Hell — vocals, bass
Richard Lloyd — guitar
Billy Ficca — drums

Great video, I just started re-reading, "Please Kill Me," which chronicles Television and all of the other great punk rock bands of that era.
