"guitar amp" recording

Hi, I'm looking for thoughts on best version of the VU "Guitar Amp" recording from March 15 '69 at Boston Tea Party.

Re: 11-14-81

That helps a lot, by showing that the venue name as I'd had it was misspelled. Googling the correct spelling, Stillwende, turns up enough hits to show that it was indeed a real place -- brief-lived, best known under its previous name of Tier 3, but real all the same.

Much appreciated!

11-14-81

I've been listening to a portion of a John Cale set dated November 14, 1981. According to Hans Werkman's site that show took place in New York, at a venue listed alternately on his site as "Stillwend Club" and "Stillwend Clube." I can find no trace of either name as having existed in New York, and w...

Re: question about 3rd album songs

Thank you for your help. I’m not trying to be coy, but sometimes people prefer their identity to not be public in all cases.

Re: VU Photo Thread

Is that a setlist tucked into the drum head?

question about 3rd album songs

I've been asked by a friend of mine who saw the VU a number times in the '60s to help him understand which of the third album songs might've been written and played out when John Cale was still in the group. I'm hoping in turn that you'all can help me help him. The songs he mentioned as being of esp...

Re: VU article in new issue of Ugly Things

The anecdote that has caused so much angst is the one that says the band took its name from the book which Tony Conrad found on the street, but there is a variant that says Reed and Cale found the book in Conrad's old apartment.
I'm not sure why that's a "variant" -- can't both be true?

Pfiffath to you, too

I assume "Mary Piffath," in this ad from the Feb. 10 '66 issue of The Village Voice, was a pseudonym for Mary Woronov. Does anyone know for how long she used it, or, more importantly, its origin?

Re: VU article in new issue of Ugly Things

I have no idea what anecdote you're referring to. And I'm not being tight-lipped, it's just that I poured my soul into the research and the writing of the article, and don't feel like giving away its salient features simply for the asking. I was also hoping that maybe one person here might read it w...

Tom Wilson was in England with Dylan for at least a portion of the tour ...
