    Where my junkies at?

    Just kidding, drugs are horrible but this band's music is not.

    Reawatching Buffy the Vampire Slayer has reminded me that I got into them through that show. Trippy.

    Might this be of interest?

    Celebrating 50 Years of The Velvet Underground catch THE VELVETS on their UK tour performing Velvet Underground classics from '67-70.

    Video -

    The Velvets are a gathering of UK based musicians/fans of The Velvet Underground. Four talented multi-instrumentalists joined together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the groups’ first album release ‘The Velvet Underground and Nico’.

    The two hour show sees THE VELVETS performing classic songs from 1967-1970. Through the pop splendour of ‘Sunday Morning’ and ‘Femme Fatale,’ to the darker decadence of ‘Heroin’ and ‘Venus In Furs’, the band create from a palette of VU sounds, yet add their own, unique lustre finish. Not just a tribute show but more a glorious celebration of The Velvet Underground.

    Boy.... wayback machine. The Banana album sold me on it. Nico's voice, was simply amazing back then.

    Lou Reed - powerful voice. Was there a Bauhaus version of a song - All tomorrows parties? Tough to remember....

    It's just about the time of year when Loaded goes into heavy rotation. Nothing like "Rock and Roll" when the sun is shining.

    I was just listening to Berlin and Coney Island Baby yesterday. I feel like Reed’s solo albums never get enough love.

    Both those albums are fucking great and the equal of Transformer. I always heard he was a prickly solo artists with a bunch of bad albums to match the great ones, but...those bad ones are few and far between, so that's a pretty garbage assessment.

    I should go back to that eventually. It's the only album of theirs that I don't like.

    my fav recording from them

    captures that raw magic that made them so special in a way the records don’t

    adore the records, but this is some black magic shit

    the greatest rock band of all time if you ask me

    they aren't my "favorite" band ever (the stooges), but the more i think about it the more i'm convinced they're the "best"
