Archive for the ‘Velvet Underground – “The Velvet Underground & Nico”’ Category
Possibly one of the first, if not the first goth song ever? For the occasion, we dragged out the sitar, Nigel took a bow to his white SG and Joey played a flute bought on the street in Japan fondly referred to as ‘The Dying Goose.’
Here is the second song from ‘The Velvet Underground & Nico’, in which everyone untunes their instruments and nigel thrashes a dx-7, coaxing sounds hitherto unheard from the 80′s power ballad beast.
For this first edition, after lengthy deliberation and coming close to covering Digital Underground’s Sex Packets, all present voted in favor of the ‘other’ Underground’s The Velvet Underground & Nico. Participants included this time around are Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, Brian Lebarton, Bram Inscore, Yo, Giovanni Ribisi, Chris Holmes, and from Iceland, special guest Thorunn Magnusdottir, and myself. Thanks to everyone who helped put this together, and to all of you for indulging in this experiment. More soon.
