Of course not. They're clearly the Peacock family from season four of the Xfiles... With a little more publicity.

Lou Reed died 27 October, 2013. Here Mark E Smith eulogises – on being a criminally devout Velvet Underground fan. Not a 'Velvets' or 'Lou Reed' fan.

At 14 when some bikers in town told me
I could score at this horrible gig in Sth. M/CR,
Lou Reed was a constant in my life.
The support group was 'Lou Reed & The Tots'.

By 73 I was a criminally devout Velvet Underground fan.
Not a 'Velvets' or 'Lou Reed' fan.
Or Johnny cum latelys.

About 87 when my mother was moving out,
I stood in the front room and looked at the stereogram
I'd listen to "Sister Ray" on full blast, 14 years back.
I opened the curtain and Nico walked past the house.

On the 'Gorillaz' tour,
Lou Reed must've been the only person I didn't talk to.
I bowed and he nodded.

The Velvet Underground group live and on vinyl of 1969–70
excels over 'pop & rock' of yesterday, tomorrow,
this, last and next week.

The Remainderer.

"WHEN ARE YOU GONNA LEAVE,
YOU FUCKIN TRAMPS?"

LOU REED
Manchester. 'Rock N Roll' Animal tour 1974

wow that was good

I do not yet feel that I am emotionally ready to address this issue. It stings, burns, and itches, knowing that Lou Reed is no longer among the living. It hurts physically, which tells me that I am not capable of distancing myself from the man/myth/legend (or anti-all of those things) and his music, enough to write anything that won't seem laughably self-indulgent and inappropriate in retrospect.

I imagine this is how the world will feel when Dylan goes.

Hopefully with time, sentiment will give way to a more objective tale on Lou Reed, and the grief I feel over his passing. Until then, I'm going to keep my mouth shut about it. Except for this little pop-in right here, to let no one know that I give a shit.

Yeah, I started imagining headlines for various artists we assume will be around forever. Yes, one day the paper will read "Dylan dead at --"

Van Morrison. Joni Mitchell. Iggy. Tom Waits. Mick. Keith. Since everyone dies, this list could be very long.

Why is something so inevitable so surprising?

we never know any of the artist personally so why should we really miss them? we should celebrate what they gave us and be thankful what they did and that they died and got some/much/little attention for their work.

can't wait for all those above musicians to die and finally get recognized. at least for a day. it's 2013. nobody knows who tha fuck those people are.

it's sounds sick, but whateve..................i live in space. aka. a vacuume. 2013.

Maybe its because I spend so much time going to shows and gigs, but while I don't know a lot of artists personally, I've made it a point to meet and talk with any band/artists I get the chance, and have essentially chatted with half the bands in my library. So there is at least a meaningful connection which is to say, I miss them when their gone (RIP CHI CHENG )...

That, and when you listen to peoples' music often if not daily, their art becomes such a big part of your life that you miss that as well. You will always have their art, but while they're living it feels like a direct connection, hence the loss.

As to Lou Reed, I never met the guy, but I literally grew up on his music, and I will miss that. I still have the music, but now it has a more somber attachment, as it should.

The deluxe White Light/White Heat will see the white light of the official day on December 10. Besides the fact that the (April?) 1967 Gym show will finally be out in (hopefully) bitchen sound, I'm intrigued by the alternate stereo take of "I Heard Her Call My Name" (!) and the early "Beginning To See The Light". As for the liner notes, I would have preferred Richie Unterberger (dig his t-shirt) or Clinton Heylin to David Fricke, but apparently Fricke interviewed Lou and Cale this year for this box set, so I'm down with having access to such recent info. Plus, I guess I should just be happy that Heylin is apparently no longer persona non grata within Bob Dylan's inner circle, as proven by the inclusion of his liner notes on Dylan's insane Complete Album Collection Vol. 1 megabox.

There came great document about Lou from Finnish television yesterday (Thurston & Lee were also interviewed in it). Even I have loved his music & lyrics, I think yesterday I totally understood how unique he was. There has been no-one like him & I dont believe there will never been anyone like him.

I got almost all Velvets albums, but only Transformer & Berlin from his solos. Im going to buy at least Metal Machine Music. And I am going to listen all his solos.

for reed do the live records, rock n roll animal and take no prisoners, to me they're the best, the latter in particular embodying that which makes lou such a fucking legend. also try hudson river wind meditations, once you get through the cloud of hippy bullshit surrounding it (fuck you tai chi) it's actually a really good set of drone pieces.
