Yeah, Lou Reed's solo stuff seems kind of hackneyed, but he's got some good pop songs. Transformer is a little bit interesting because of Mick Ronson and David Bowie's parts in it. And The Blue Mask is awesome just because Robert Quine played on it.

I never took the time to listen to John Cale until today. I didn't really care for it. I was hoping for something less conventional. The songs I heard from Sabotage were pretty neat though.

It's is worth mentioning Songs For Drella, the Cale/Reed collaboration. Brilliant.


Sabotage, The Island Years (Three albums in a two disk set), and Paris 1919. I pretty much like his entire seventies works, including collaborations.

...but, I'd never put Lou Reed down, other than he's always "tough guy", and he's written some of the most pansyassed stuff ever. :haha: I mean that in a good way. Satellite of Love is a great song.

Note on Nico: She was huge in Europe, or at least France. She was reduced to traveling in a station wagon before her death.

I like "The Marble Index" the John Cale / Nico collaboration album, but its not very accessible.

I love Lou Reed and Jonathan Richmond. Jonathan and the Modern Lovers are definitely in the proto punk arena. And seeing Jonathan live is really, really fun. He's incredibly accessible as an artist. And check out Jonathan Richmond's other major influences--the early Stooges and the MC5s.

The Blue Mask, Transformer, and Metal Machine Music because everything you've heard about the last one is true.

John Cale's solo career is also worth looking into. i think that a lot of people would say it is better than Lou's.

I absolutely love John Cale's Paris 1919. :heart:

Also, Nico's solo stuff, which features plenty of Cale, is pretty sweet. Out of all the VU members, she probably did the most avant-garde stuff after leaving. I mean, other than Metal Machine Music.

this is awesome. when I clicked onto this thread, I figured it'd be in classic rock. mayyyybe indie & alt. I completely forgot about the proto-punk thing. hahaha. that's how awesome the Velvets were, man. so many different kinds of fans can get into them.

that being said, all of these suggestions have been really great so far.
you might be into some Adam Green. I've heard a bunch of comparisons to Lou Reed, especially Adam's newest album Minor Love. a lot of really crazy lyrics. I love him.

I wouldn't say it's much like the VU in its musical arrangements, which is why a lot of people don't like it, but naturally it's very much the same singin'- and songwritin'-wise.

Transformer is essential of course.

If you wanna explore his early solo stuff more, his first (self-titled) album is real cool too—most of the songs were recycled from the VU days, however, so if you've already dug into the VU's rarities comps and live albums you might not really hear anything new.

A lot of people really like Berlin. I've only jammed it a few times. It's pretty melodramatic, and it probably requires more conscious listening than most of his stuff I guess.

Metal Machine Music is the most badass and beautiful ambient texture evar.

Critix like The Blue Mask because it's all stripped-down and Bob Quine played on it. I like it, but it's a little overrated IMO. Many of the lyrics make me cringe—I know they're supposed to be like that, but still.

New York is a lot of fun.

I've never really liked John Cale's solo stuff. I just don't like his accent, or how neat and tidy Paris 1919 sounds. Maybe I'll give Fear another shot someday. I kinda liked some stuff from Sabotage/Live at one point, but I couldn't get past the voice, which somehow made the lyrics sound stilted and lame.

Nico's Chelsea Girl is nice. I still need to check out The Marble Index.

Have you guys heard Cale & Eno's collab, Wrong Way Up? It's a more pop-oriented record than you might expect (or hope for) from those cats (well, not like Eno's a stranger to pop musik), but it's really sweet nevertheless.

█▐▌█▐▌
12-27-2011, 02:48 PM
I used to listen to Eno quite a bit, but I don't think I ever passed the threshold between "sorta liking" and "liking" his music. He's too scientific for me, I guess.

As far as collabs, though, Songs for Drella is pretty cool, if a bit too Cale-esque and neat, if ya like Reed and/or Cale and/or are at all interested in the persona of Andy Warhol.

Ooops, ^^

I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of the ambient stuff - it's interesting, I like to put it on in the background while I'm reading - but I really love his first few solo albums. Taking Tiger Mountain (by Strategy) is a favorite.

I have Songs for Drella and listened to it once & it was just OK.

I read an interview with Robert Quine where he basically said Lou Reed's a giant asshole & he's way too concerned with being viewed as a poet which is often detrimental to him as a rocknroller, and that's how I feel about that album.

Incidentally, Quine also said he'd recorded some stuff with Eno in the early '80s but it got scrapped. Too bad. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

█▐▌█▐▌
12-27-2011, 03:43 PM
Man, if Songs for Drella is supposed to be Lou Reed trying to be viewed as a poet... Well... He's a shitty poet. What I like about his lyrics (besides the ones about sucking on ding dongs, etc.) is that they're coyly unpoetic. Or something like that.

I only remember listening to Drella once, for the record.

I'll see if I can't dig up that Quine interview, sounds interesting.

I Wanna Be Yr. Boyfriend
Judy is a Punk
Let's Dance
I Don't Wanna Go Down to the Basement

Every album is just so... amazing in its own right.

VU & Nico is, objectively, the most important album. Nico on there, killer tunes, immensely influential, and goddamn Venus in Furs reaches stratospheric heights.

White Light/White Heat is IMO their most experimental, their most avant-garde work.

VU is full of gold star songwriting.

With Loaded they took their songwriting to a new level. The songs are well-structured and are absolute classics, Sweet Jane, Rock & Roll, New Age, OH Sweet Nuthin'. Though I get that one might find it a little too polished compared to the first two albums.

I'd probably take Loaded over VU,mainly because of Oh Sweet Nuthin', but they are pretty darn close.

05-08-2012, 03:46 PM
I think he was talkin' about VU the 1985 compilation, not the self-titled third album. Cuz everybody knows the self-titled is better than Loaded.

I think the first album is more "experimental" and just as "avant garde" as WL/WH. WL/WH is just really noisy (needless to say). Like, just turning everything up really ****ing loud isn't really experimental, and jamming for 17 minutes is only marginally so. Suppose "The Gift" qualifies though.

I agree, about VU & Nico being my favorite but feeling sorta lame for it. White Light and the s-t are really close, but I like the former better/more often.

The first three songs on Loaded are some of their very best. The rest is prtty much their worst.

ahum:

>cool it down
>new age
>oh sweet nuthin'

especially oh sweet nuthing is bloody amazing. Loaded is actually the album that got me into them, and I'd say it is my favourite on some days. But to say that the rest of loaded is their worst seems ridiculous. Lonesome Cowboy Bill is not really meant to be taken seriously, and I'd say I Found A Reason is up to par with e.g. That's The Story Of My Life (from Velvet Underground).
Either way, I've always found that the undergrounds main quality is that they havent produced anything thats bad with their 4 albums. Except for maybe that one time I found a live version of All Tomorrow's Parties and heard Lou singing :mad:

it's just... would a punk band write Candy Says, Jesus, or Sticking With You?

Huh?

Didn't think so.

So move along.

You're a fucking dumb cocksucker in the same way that a fucking dumb cocksucker is a fucking dumb cocksucker.

There are other Velvet Underground threads. This is the one in the Punk forum. It was made so people who dig punk-related music could discuss them in that context. If you wanna talk about how great Squeeze is or something find one of the threads in the Classic Rock forum.

Box set reissues are pretty bullshit. It's like, we obviously already have the album; if ya wanna remaster some old bootlegs that's cool but don't try to 'sell' me stuff I already have. Putting Chelsea Girls in there is especially whack. And they're doing this for the 45 year anniversary? Bet they'll do something else in 5 years.

But boys will be boys (boys=record companies). I will download it anyway. It doesn't appear to be laid out too badly. I never did find a good comprehensive recording of that Columbus show so that's kewl.

They should make it 7 discs, and include All Yesterday's Parties.
