    Funny how it's easy to appreciate bands when they're still living too.

    Funny how when someone dies that can be the catalyst for you to go back and look deeper into an artist/band that you have already listened to and might even have a record or two of theirs. I did the same thing when Syd Barrett died.

    v Scaruffi's page on Velvet Underground looks like science fiction to me.

    The Velvet Underground are probably the most influential band of the entire history of rock music. The Velvet Underground scavenged the narrow alleys of the bad parts of town, and scavenged the subconscious of the urban kid, for emotional scraps that were a barbaric by-product of the original spirit of rock'n'roll. Their goal was only marginally the sonic reproduction of the psychedelic experience. Their true goal was to provide a documentary of the decadent, disaffected, cynical mood that was spreading among the intelligentsia. These were not hippies, these were elitist musicians who were aware of the avantgarde movements: they began playing (in 1965) as part of Andy Warhol's multimedia show "The Exploding Plastic Inevitable". They originated the "pessimistic" strand of psychedelic music (as opposed to San Francisco's optimistic strand). The Velvet Underground probably remain the most influential band in the entire history of rock music.

    v I have to disagree with that! That's one of their best songs. The instrumental part is so trippy!

    I think Eno also said that even though only 30,000 albums were sold, everyone of those who bought the album started a band

    March 2014

    v because what they created back in the 60's was so original and emotional yet simple and universal that it highly influenced a lot of Rock music that came after them: Alternative, Indie, Punk, glam, art rock, noise rock, post punk, post rock, ... are just a few of rock sub-genres that owe something to the Velvet Underground. The amount and diversity of musicians influenced by Velvet Underground remains unbelievably high even right now. The Velvet Underground basically created a new definition of music with their first 3 studio albums.

    There are days that I'm so hopelessly in love with this band that I don't want to think of any other musician or musical group. It saddens me that this band ended many a year ago, long before I was even alive and could theoretically experience them in person... but the music lives forever, or until the planet blows up, anyway!

    What a fucking weird band. They're huge growers though. I went from being perplexed about VU&Nico to genuinely loving the hell out of it. The other two after it are great too.
