I just recently purchased the VU album "White Light/White Heat" and I just have to say that it is without a doubt the best rock 'n roll album ever. There is nothing on there that is less than amazing. I absolutely adore them. It sucks because none of my friends are even into them so I have no one to rant to about their greatness.
But now I have found this community and shall henceforth rant at any time I see fit.
Has anyone seen the tv promos for Covenant House with the Nico song? I'm not familiar with Nico's solo output so I don't know the name of the tune. It begins with sweet, vivacious acoustic guitar plucking and I think her first line is something like "And now that it's time..." Maybe it's just for the Canadian chapter of Covenant House, I dunno.
Does anyone have an absurd fixation with Nico that is beyond extracurricular?
Has anyone heard anything new lately about the Poe project Lou has been working on? Something had been announced months ago, but I haven't heard a peep about it since.
Hello everyone, I am new & this is my attempt at an introduction.
I love the Velvet Underground & have a slight obsession with Lou Reed.
Just a heads up to let you all know that the Velvet Underground And Nico is being re-released (at least in the UK) with extra tracks - from what I've read it's going to be some of those that Lou and John did for Nico's Chelsea Girl.
And now, to go buy something that I already have four copies of (including an original vinyl copy that I picked up at a record fair last week for a whole four quid! Bargain!)....
(Hello, big Velvet Underground fan, just joined the community...)
Any Nico experts out there? I'm curious about the two different version of 'Drama of Exile'. I'm going to order the CD released on See For Miles, which I understand is the original version. There's a CD released by Cleopatra, which Amazon lists as 'Drama of Exile (Remixed)', but it seems to have the same track listing as the original. And how about the 'Icon' CD, does that have all of the alternate versions?
