SONG OF THE DAY Television – Little Johnny Jewel (Parts 1 & 2)


Coming together in New York in 1973, Television were an early fixture of CBGB and the 1970’s New York rock scene and are considered by many to be one of the band’s that shaped and influenced the development of punk and alternative music.

They played punk with stripped-down guitar’s and an alternative style, but unlike the typical structures of punk, their sound was often improvised and more technically inclined,  drawing from avant-garde jazz and 1960’s rock.

Little Johnny Jewel (Parts One and Two) was Television’s vinyl debut, released in 1975 on indie label, Ork Records, which was owned by their manager Terry Ork.  Defined by an epic beat and mean bass line, it’s one my favourite Television tracks..  Check it out above…
