The Velvet Underground: Walk on the Wild Side
Episode date - September 30, 2023
Here we are, only ten shows and about 5 years into our coverage of The Velvet Underground, and we are pretty much done with the portion covering the band’s legacy…or so it seems.
The truth is that the careers of Lou Reed and Cale remained continually in the shadow of their previous band. This is made most obvious by Lou Reed’s second solo album, where he returns to memories of that period for most of his material. “Transformer” is a significant step forward for Lou Reed, but it consists mostly of memories from his time with Andy Warhol’s crew and the influence that it had on him.
