      Television Ponder Studio Return, Reissue Classic Albums with Bonus Tracks
      Nigel Godrich on bended knee: "I can make you bigger than the Strokes!"

      [Posted Wednesday, August 6th, 2003 06:00:00 Pitchfork Central Time]

      Marnie Christenson reports:
      Television-- the original minimalist guitar rock band (and most routinely
      name-dropped influence to all things New York art-rock) is apparently
      talking about getting back into the studio. Although they've been touring
      together in their original form since 2001, their last recorded material
      appeared in 1992 (the self-titled Television for Capitol). In a recent
      interview with Billboard guitarist Richard Lloyd remarked: "We have quite a
      few new songs which get performed live, and we also talk about recording
      from time to time." He goes on in a rather vague manner, stating that the
      band don't exactly have record-company funding, but may record anyway... on
      their own time.

      In the meantime, we can expect several reissues from the seminal proto-punk
      band this fall. Most notably, Rhino Records is repackaging the group's twin
      late '70s classics Marquee Moon and Adventure with the requisite additional
      artwork, new liner notes, lyrics, and unreleased bonus tracks. Among the
      goodies are alternate versions of "Marquee Moon," "Friction," and "See No
      Evil," the never-released title track to Adventure, a remix and alternate
      instrumental version of "Ain't That Nothin'," ultra-rare early single
      "Little Johnny Jewel" and an early version of "Glory." Both reissues are
      due September 23rd.

      Also premiering on the 23rd is Live at the Old Waldorf, a live gig recorded
      June 29th, 1978-- only a few months before the band's initial breakup. This
      recording is being made available by Rhino Handmade, and will only be
      offered online. The tracklist could not be verified by Rhino Handmade at
      the time of this writing, but will likely mirror various bootlegs of the
      show:

      01 Glory
      02 Venus De Milo
      03 Foxhole
      04 Careful
      05 Ain't that Nothin'
      06 Friction
      07 Marquee Moon
      08 Satisfaction
      09 Little Johnny Jewel

      You might also have noticed that a reissue of Television frontman Tom
      Verlaine's 1987 solo effort Flashlight hit the bins on the Collector's
      Choice label this week, also with spiffy lyrics and liner notes.

      Television will also be playing three shows in September, and there's
      always the potential for more. In the meantime, Lloyd will continue to tour
      in November and December with Rocket From The Tombs, as the stand-in for
      long-since-deceased Peter Laughner. Here are the three upcoming Television
      dates:

      09-21 San Francisco, CA - The Fillmore
      09-25 Tokyo, Japan - Shibuya Ax
      09-27 Fujinomiya, Japan - Asagiri Jam Festival
