Yes, and one of us will have to pretend to be crippled/injured...I went there in '91 with a cast on my leg and they let us on all the rides without waiting in any lines ever since I was in a wheelchair. We'll post footage of our excursion...Kegmama can be our filmer.

Ive got White light white heat now, i never liked the first album, lou reed is such a dull performer in my humbleness, i understand the influence but it just doesnt wash with me. I like the more Venus in Furs type songs, so perhaps this album will serve me better.

John Cale live 1983



 
Hello, I'm back again. Other things to do, some trouble with my internet provider, such were things that kept me from posting.
My first "new" post is a fantastic live performance by the great John Cale from March 7th 1983 in the Markthalle in Hamburg. Just him solo with his guitar and piano, very intense, but also very charming as he was in pretty good mood, joked with the audience and seemed to have a good time himself. Until then I had only heard very little by John Cale, but after this concert I was hooked. I have seen him a few times since then, mostly solo but 2003 he played a free open-air in Oldenburg with a band.

The sound quality is pretty good as it was later broadcasted on NDR 2.

John Cale live 07.03.1983, Markthalle Hamburg part 1

John Cale live 07.03.1983, Markthalle Hamburg part 2 reup!

The second post is a performance John Cale gave in the studios of BFBS in Cologne on February 5th 1984 in Alan Bangs' show Nightflight. It#s not the complete show, only a few songs, among them also a Jonathan Richman song and "Song to the siren" by This Mortal Coil (played on 33rpm!), but that's what was on the tape.

Sterling Morrison was fucking hot.

Moe Tucker is adorable.

I've always preferred Nico to Lou Reed. Her songs have always been my favorite from the VU's debut. Chelsea Girls is solid.

I've never been able to get into her songs that much, I think her accent annoys me... I do like I'll Be Your Mirror though.

Sterling Morrison once explained how it took quite a number of takes to get Nico to sing they way she does on 'I'll Be Your Mirror'. They didn't want her to sing in a strong teutonic tone and in the end they bullied her so much, she started crying and, bang!, the final take was born. It wasn't unusual for them to take the piss out of her, and sometimes they would switch her microphone off just when she was about to sing. Theatre Of Cruelty indeed.

...same here (quite like I'll Be Your Mirror, not much into Nico generally) . What is your favourite VU song all the time? I would vote probably for Black Angel's Death Song followed by Venus In Furs.

SISTER RAY!!!!
White Light/White Heat is my favorite album of all time. I got hooked to the VU via the Uptight bio. I read first, got hooked, listened later, fell in love. The perfect sound.
Thank you sarramkrop, I'd rep you a million times but "have to spread around some reputation before..."

I failed the quiz in the first question. Read too fast! The Warlocks was the name the band adopted with Walter De Maria on percussion, but not when they first met and Tony Conrad was playing. That was The Primitives.

Velvet Underground - Squeeze




 


Though the Velvet Underground was pretty much done by the time Lou Reed left in 1970, there's an interesting postscript that few people know about. Until 1973, the band carried on, now led by Doug Yule. In '71, Sterling Morrison left, and the band was augmented by Yule's friends from his days in the Grass Menagerie.

The Velvets toured Europe to some level of cult success and eventually an album contract was secured with the Polydor label. Perhaps for reasons of control, manager Steve Sesnick sent the rest of the band, including Mo Tucker, home and Yule recorded everything except for drums himself. (Drums were provided by Ian Pace of Deep Purple.)

So, what of Squeeze? Well, it's hard to accept as a true Velvet Underground album, even if it does share a lot of spirit and sound with Loaded. As a Doug Yule solo album, it shows a lot of promise. As the Velvet's epitaph...well, I'll leave that to you to decide.

Anyway, here's a cool site someone had the good sense to archive: http://bobchaos.com/squeeze/squeeze1.html Due to it's rarity and obscurity this album always has a bit of mystery about it. Hope you enjoy.
