Listen to the first 2 Television albums


I've just downloaded these for the hell of it based on this post...

Never really been inspired to listen to Television previously but so far it's been a pleasant experience.

Good. Work. Sir.

The band I'm in has three dudes playing guitar, and it works pretty well. The singer plays mostly rhythm stuff with an occasional lead (mostly doing kind of the Fender clean thing with a few effects), the other guitarist is just straight-up Les Paul+Marshall, and I'm the dick with a bunch of pedals and a slide and an E-Bow.

Unless you're trying to do the whole two-guys-leaning-on-each-others-back-playing-harmony-solos thing, you should be able to work with your own sound to make it distinct enough to be heard in its own space, and let the other guy do his thing too.

they were really great, too bad they broke up. think they may have played a reunion show recently.

there's another band called the cribs that is a 3 piece, so just guitar/bass/drums, and it suits their music perfect, but now apparently johnny marr of the smiths has joined, and i am at an absolute loss as to how they are going to sort that out; not only is an entirely unnecessary second guitar introduced, but johnny marr of all guitarists?


YESSS! I have been saying this since he joined! He has ruined The Cribs! The 3 brothers from Wakefield are now a normal 4 piece band Sad

It wasn't really Johnny Marr who ruined them, it was just having a 4th member - it could have been anyone. They were 3 brothers and their music fitted the 3 piece setup perfectly. They didnt need a new member, kind of ruined it. Also, they are quite young and Jonny Marr isn't - it just doesnt work. In my opinion anyway.

that makes no sense to me. and it didnt improve their sound at all, to me.


reminds me of when david pajo and matt sweeney (of chavez, see above) joined zwan, only to be drowned out by billy corgans overwhelming ego/musical stylings. why were they even in that band?


without billy corgan, zwan couldve been INCREDIBLE.

They're awful. They get nothing like enough of a sound to qualify having two guitarists either.

Don't like 2 guitars in one band, would prefer a keyboard. Have loved plenty of 2 guitar bands, but never enjoyed trying to hammer out that dynamic personally. Especially when one of them just twiddles knobs on his pedalboard the whole show and then dubs himself resident "texturalist". Fuck off and buy a synth already, you no-talent assclown.
