Velvet Underground and Nico - 50!!

Recommended Posts

Haven't heard this album on it's own but from the tracks I know of it has to be Venus in Furs. I just love John Cale's violin (viola?) on this.

'I am tired. I am weary. I could sleep for a thousand years'.


Given it's subject matter I think 'The Masked Tulip' might like it as well. ;)

by pure chance have their first CD in the car at the moment, Nico hmmm a little bit Germanic I have to say. Vot couleur shall zee poor girl vere to all tomorrowz partiz

They did a famous concert at the Bataclan in Paris back in the day - the Bataclan should reopen any day now. Great Protopunk group, very innovative.

Edie Sedgewick, just the kind of girl Jo Davola would meet on PoF

Probably utter sacrilege, but I prefer their third album, The Velvet Underground.

No,   that's fair enough, the nico album is more famous for its cover art lol. There's only a handful of songs that stand out. VU is awesome
