- The Velvet Underground & Nico.
I grew up to it in the 70’s, i guess it would be my mums fav album as it was on practically every day and she used to chase me around the house to Run…Run…Run…. and when my dad was due back in from the fishing boats she used to play me waiting on my man – It’s weird how some things stick in your mind, i guess it must have been late 70’s as i remember going to school for the first time.
Brilliant album btw, personally i always loved Heroin, especially how the song just built…and built…and built….obviously back then i had no knowledge of the true meaning or even what it was about, to this day i still love it.Posted 4 years ago13thfloormonkMember
Yeah, want to love it but Nico’s voice just grates a bit (was the teutonic singer in blazing saddles based on Nico?). Much like Rodriguez, love his songs but get tired of his voice sometimes.
We played white light/white heat to death in first year at Uni, definitely brings back memories!Posted 4 years agoredstripeMember
Good choice OP. John Cale’s the coolest of the lot followed by Mo Tucker I reckon. Feel an (illogical) affinity because he’s from the same village as my lot, I went to the same college and lived in the same road as him, albeit years later. Got to see them in about 1993, Lou Reed came across as a bit of a prat with his affected singing, John Cale was as cool as ever. Live 1969 album my favourite of their stuff.Posted 4 years ago
