MJ, you are now ready to dig the, um, "organic" version of Metal Machine Music
, if you haven't already:
Lou Reed & Zeitkratzer - Metal Machine Music - 2002-03-20 Venice - reseed
There's also an official CD+DVD set
(not of this exact performance, of course), but a minty copy commands big bucks on the Interhole (God-DAMMIT am I sick of out-of-print releases...). Watch out for a solo for the ages by Lou on the third movement! If you can't download stuff via Dime, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
Now, a couple of related questions for the board: 1.- A few years ago, Lee mentioned he'd written a piece for Zeitkratzer
- does anybody know if this baby can be heard somewhere? 2.- Back to MMM
, "on December 01 Zeitkratzer performed the final, so far unreleased part of Metal Machine Music in their Berlin concert as a tribute to Lou"
- no recording has surfaced yet? Really? Crap!
