Television – Marquee Moon

Now that my Lebrain Le-Rocks Series is done (and what a great pile of music THAT was!), I figure I may as well just keep hammering away at my finds from our trip to Taranna for our anniversary. Good times!

This one is a 200-word blast of love. Another She Said Boom! find, this copy was $10 and worth every fucking penny. “Put ten bucks in just to get the tank topped off,” indeed!

The Racy Lacy Anniversary Series, Part 11 (CD)

I own an original LP of this one, and it’s an old, trusted friend. Finding this CD with a few bonus tracks, was awesome. A Japanese edition has even more bonus tracks, I’d love to get that, but this one will tide me over…

Funny thing, I thought I’d already written about this album, but apparently not. Hm. So, what can I possibly say about Marquee Moon that hasn’t been said? Not much, surely, except to say I love it unreservedly for the absolute gem that it is.

It’s one of those influential, essential records from that critical 1977 punk/new wave era. Is it completely either genre, though? Not entirely. But who cares? Drop the needle (er, in this case, laser) and it’s a sheer immersive, tasteful experience unlike any other. I love every song unreservedly.

I’m so used to the original playing order on the LP (I know when to flip to side B by rote!) that the bonus tracks are, while fun (I’ve listed them below), it messes with my usual listening experience!

No matter. It’s a friggin’ classic and if you don’t own it, you must. Yes, I am biased, but in this case, I’m not wrong!
