Re: Prominent Men: Early Demos

Those demo's recorded 1966.Nov/Dec in 424 Broome St., source of audio is Sterling's demo disc (acetate?) I'm not trying to shoot down your theory, but I can't help but wonder what would be the reason, as well as the mechanism, for them having the reel transferred to disc? That would've been costly ...

Re: Prominent Men: Early Demos

Can anyone tell me about the 12-string Lou plays in this Allan Lee Koss photo from Alfredo's The Velvet Underground In Chicago book? http://songpoemmusic.com/vuforum/12-string.jpg I don't recall having seen him play this guitar in any other photos, including the other frames from this Kinetic Playgr...

PKM: Sterling's last interview

Legs McNeil recently posted to his Please Kill Me site a superb, revelatory interview he conducted with Sterling Morrison a few months before his death in 1995. I don't know the purpose for the interview nor whether any of it's been published before, but damn if it isn't "loaded" with cool info and ...

"St. Marks Is Dead"

I've found some very interesting passages in Ada Calhoun's St. Marks Is Dead book. The first gives some background on Stanley Tolkin, owner (according to Calhoun) of the facility that would be variously known as Stanley's and the Dom: ... That tack was unsuccessful, but Joyce Hartwell did find love ...

Prominent Men: Early Demos

Paul at the Albums That Should Exist downloads blog has interesting VU post. Here's his introductory notes for it: I've got some really good Velvet Underground albums to post.

Re: VU Photo Thread

https://www.blackiris-photography.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/03_galella_tramboline_1967-1024x747.jpg I believe we have seen this picture before, but I'm not sure the venue was identified as the Gymnasium. (In fact, was it not previously identified as having been the Dom, which mystified us all?...
