Lou Reed is an influence of mine...the reason I am posting here is I did a very different version of Perfect Day (and mind you, I love the original). I want to share it with the world :)

It is all on my myspace

John Cale deserves better [Jan. 6th, 2007|03:13 am]

I've never actually  posted to this community before, which is possibly why I don't mind being burned as a heretic by the Lou Reed lovers out there.

But godammit, it has to be said: John Cale, not Lou Reed, is the Godfather of Punk, and it is he that is responsible for their recognition, not Reed: it was his vision that gave them that sound. Lou Reed is not that great a musician, or singer, and his skills as a lyricist range from the very good to the abysmal. His song writing can be amazing, but - and let's not even bother arguing the point - his solo work is so much less consistent than Cale that it becomes obvious: he is an artist who is inspired by others.

Bowie and Ronson inspired him on Transformer, and Ronson is responsible for the album's most famous hook (you know the one); John Cale inspired him on the first two VU albums and again on 'Songs For Drella', the closest Reed has come to actual beauty in years.

'Helen Of Troy' easily bests 'Loaded' as an album, 'Fear' is far more beautiful than 'Transformer' and dare I say it, 'Paris 1919' is at least comparable to 'the Velvet Underground'? When Reed decided to follow Cale into the experimental, he got lost; he drifted back into the conventional and that is where he has largely remained since. The singer of one of my favourite groups once said, "the middle of the road is for dead animals and dumb Americans". Lou Reed has veered close to both in the music of his latter years.

I'm not a Cale addict who raves about WLWH, I just think that it needs to be said. Lou Reed was half of one of the 20th century's most important bands; his rock sensibilities married to Cale's musicality produced something revolutionary that would eventually shake the increasingly self-indulgent trend of music out of its stupor. 

But I'm sorry, Cale needs to be talked about as half of that group. And the quality of his smaller input (VIC, SR, etc.) marks him as, I believe, the more brilliant.

Hi! I`ve been watching this comm for some time, and just nowI formally joined.
Name:Barbora
Age: 28
Location: Slovakia
Why You Love the Velvet Underground: it`s mind-blowing music.
Favorite Song (other then something by the v.u): Lou Reed: Why can`t I be good, Nick Cave: The Good Son
Favorite Song by the Velvet Underground: I`ll be your mirror



And now something only partly related to VU.

I`m looking for Lou`s song "My Love is Chemical" from the movie "White Nights" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090319/
I just learned about the existence of this song and of course, I want it.
Can anyone upload it for me? I`d be very grateful.

Why You Love the Velvet Underground: HISTORICALLY, THEY OFFERED THE MUSIC SCENE AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE FLOWER CHILD/PEACE AND LOVE REVOLUTION. THE VELVET UNDERGROUND, TO ME ARE MODERN, ARTISTIC, AND METROPOLITAN.

Favorite Song (other then something by the v.u): Right now, THE VENUS IN FURS' 'TUMBLING DOWN'. (FROM VELVET GOLDMINE..BEEN LISTENING TO IT A LOT LATELY)

Favorite Song by the Velvet Underground: HEROIN.


NICE TO JOIN THE COMMUNITY!

Anyone here catch Lou Reed's performance with The Reconteurs at the VMAs?

Oh, also, Doug Yule joined Mark Gardiner onstage at Pianos in New York City to play a few songs, check it out here.

Umm, so I´m a new member and blah blah blah all that shit that you apparently asked to write, right?

So, I´m Janni from Finland and I´m 18 years old and I became a fan last February when my dad gave me 7 good cd´s that I hadn´t listened to for my birthday present, including Velvet Underground.
And ´cause this is a VU-society, my favourite non-vu song is now Bowie´s Queen bitch (´cause it sounds like vu).
And my favourite vu song is...(this is kind of hard)...maybe Candy says or Rock & Roll or something.
They´re all great. And that´s why I love the band.

^_^ Nice to meet you.
