Oh, I Almost Forgot...

By way of follow-up to the Television/MARQUEE MOON post & comments. Here's an excerpt from the Nick Kent review referenced by Rabid T. I found it very likeable!!!

"He takes these potentially cataclysmic ideas and rigorously shapes them into a potential total redefinition of the electric guitar. As far as I'm concerned, as of this moment, Verlaine is probably the most exciting electric lead guitar player barring only Neil Young. As it is, Verlaine's solo constructions are always unconventional, forever delving into new areas, never satisfied with referring back to formulas." -- Nick Kent, "Just Watch This Screen", New Musical Express, February 1977.
