What more is there to say at this point?
Given that back in the 80s info was very scarce on the band, it's ironic we know so much now. Thank you Olivier for starting the bandwagon! :)

Re: Todd Haynes docu announcement

I've been saying for years that no-one had yet done a decent VU docu. Aside from Feedback (which I've never seen and I doubt it has subtitles so I could appreciate it properly), the previous efforts have been very lightweight and factually incorrect in places. Plus there's the Doug Yule question - w...

Re: Candy Says (video and audio combined)

All I can say is in this emoji..

:bowdown:

Since first hearing about the video footage I'd long hoped we'd get a sync up. This is a well-deserved break through. Let's hope we get more.

Well done to all involved.

Is this the first VU footage in properly synced sound & vision since ASOS?

Re: VU Docu Film OST album announced

But the key thing is (well for me, that is), where is Doug? I hope this is not another docu where he is relegated to a minor role or seen as an irrelevance.

50th Anniversary - but when?

Long time no hear... Doesn't it seem odd that here we are coming up to the 50th anniversary of our beloved band's debut album and after 50 years, no one know exactly when it was released? All we have to go on is 'March 1967'. I would have thought that someone by now would have dug deep into the Verv...

VU&N and the Billboard charts

Much to my surprise today - in a discussion on Blonde On Blonde of all things - I found out that the Billboard LP chart didn't become at top 200 until May 13th 1967 (it was a 175 before then). The VU&N debuted in the chart that week at 199. Now given that our beloved album was released 2 months earl...

Bataclan '72 in colour?

Ok, so Brian Eno's Twitter account has just posted this: https://vimeo.com/146410460 I remember a while ago on the VU Webpage it mentioned there was an alternate colour version of the same live footage that's been around for years. Could this clip be from that rare source? I'm not convinced myself. ...

Re: The Matrix Tapes - COMING SOON

Sort of disappointed there isn't any 'new' songs here but this looks good. A 14 min take on IWFTM? I'm in!

Re: New Early Lou LP

I suppose these will now be legit given that the 50 years is almost up on the copyright for these tracks. Would like to see a more comprehensive set of Lou-related Pickwick tracks if anyone out there is looking to take advantage of these now being PD. :)
