Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

I remember buying my copy of the "Foggy Notion" EP via a small ad in the NME or Sounds, mid to late 1976. The EP itself was reviewed by Roy Carr in the NME on 11th September 1976. Remember also that the Cleveland band "The Mirrors" (featuring one Jamie Klimek) were covering "Foggy Notion" in the ear...

Re: Original reel-to-reel recording from Second Fret up on eBay

Re: Richie Unterberger on the making of White Light/White Heat*

I have 1st generation audio recordings of both Eindhoven 10th Aug and Amsterday 12th Aug - I shared them both on Dime a while back. I also have a silent colour film of part of the Amsterdam show, but it...

Re: Magic and Loss is about Rachel, isn't it?

Lou was quoted in the Press Kit for M&L: "Over the last year in particular there were some friends of mine that I lost. And the experience of it and the inspiration that these friends gave me was the reason that I wrote the album." And talking about "Cremation": "The song "Cremation" was directly in...
