Maureen Tucker “Playing possum”

I don’t like the Velvet Underground.

I used to. I still like the idea of The Velvet Underground, what they tried to do, their motives, the lot. But John Cale was right: “the songs are hypes”.  A few years ago I realised I didn’t want to hear them any more so I got rid of all related recordings. Except this one.

This is the purest recording by one of the loveliest people ever to grace the ‘orrid world of rock and pop with her presence. She’s a great and revolutionary musician.
