Television came up in the 1970s among the first wave of New York punks (Ramones, Talking Heads, etc.), but their ambitious epics and stellar musicianship were far removed from the proletarian orientation of their CBGB's peers. The twin guitars of Richard Lloyd and Tom Verlaine made for a magical sound, further enhanced by Verlaine's poetic lyrics. Television broke up after two albums, but reunited long enough for a third in 1992, and have since staged sporadic reunion concerts.
