[Music] John Cale Announces 50th Anniversary Celebration of The Velvet Underground & Nico

TVU-thumb

It’s amazing to think that this album, which sold pitifully when it was first released, influenced almost everyone who bought it to form a band, so the legend goes. I’m very happy to hear John Cale himself had a hand in preparing this seminal release by The Velvet Underground & Nico. I simply hope the remastering is good.

I thank my old friend Mileta of the ever-stunning Serbian-language music blog valtazarzauberquelle, who turned me on to a band whom he perfectly described as a Byzantine psychedelic groove band. It’s as if Popol Vuh stumbled into Orthodoxy instead of Eastern mysticism.
