I've just finished listening to the guitar amp tape. It's very good. More people should listen to it.

Just thought y'all might like to know.

edie was way into drugs and shit looong before she was in with the factory; she'd been in and out of mental hospitals. the whole sedgwick family was kind of messed up. i'm sure warhol dumping her off (being the type of asshole he was) didn't help, but he wasn't the one who set her up for self destruction. edie probably would have done the same thing even if she'd never gone to new york... but i guess it's easier to pin the blame on warhol or dylan or whoever was around.


i'm gonna throw the guitar amp tape on, haven't heard it in a while. good stuff.

From the Plimton book about her it seemed Edie was, like Warhol, basically asexual.

Velvet Underground members reuniting at NY library

Tue Nov 17, 2009 10:12pm EST



By David J. Prince
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Former Velvet Underground members Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker and Doug Yule will make an extremely rare joint public appearance on December 8 at the New York Public Library.
The three will discuss the Velvet Underground's music and legacy with rock journalist David Fricke as part of the "LIVE from the NYPL" series.
The reunion of the legendary New York band comes on the heels of the publication of "The Velvet Underground: New York Art," a compendium of previously unseen photographs, poster and cover designs by Andy Warhol, Lou Reed's handwritten music and lyrics, underground press clippings and other reviews, flyers, handbills and posters.
The book, published by Italian book house Rizzoli, also contains a recorded conversation between Reed and Tucker, as well as contributions from former Czech president Vaclav Havel and author Jon Savage.
The event will take place at the Celeste Bartos Forum in the library's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 5th Ave. and 42nd St. General admission tickets are $25, and $15 tickets are available for library donors, students and seniors through the NYPL website.
The original Velvet Underground lineup included Reed, Tucker, John Cale, Sterling Morrison and vocalist Nico. The group's debut album, often referred to as "the banana album" from its distinctive pop art cover, was produced by Andy Warhol and includes rock and roll classics like "Heroin" and "Sunday Morning."
Cale left the band in 1968 and was replaced by Yule. The group split in the early 1970s, though it re-formed briefly with Cale and toured in the early 1990s. Nico died in 1988, and Sterling Morrison in 1995.

I heard John Cale didn't want to go because he has an overdue book and can't afford to pay the fine.

Indeed. It's awesome, and the recent feature on Uncut magazine is not bad at all, cd and all. It renvigorated my love for them once more (that's many, many times it happened), and brought back a need to update (this time in English) the fanzine I dedciated to them in my teens.

I luv the velvet underground, and I'd probably collect more of their boots if they didn't all sorta sound the same. Like, w/ Stones bootlegs, you see how the Stones evolved over the years (meaning their best years 68-73 or so) and you hear those changes most pronounced on stage in their boots. W/ the vu it could all be from some same long tour.

Mah, John Cale area boot's and doug yule area boots sound quite diffrint. Yule's even got a offical livealbum, which is like a way poppier VU.

Track 11 of the unbootlegged Warhol tapes. They sound like Sonic Youth before their time. Can't be arsed to up that, I'm afraid.
