Re: Buddhists on Fire (feat. Sterling Morrison)

I got this a while ago, and it's an ok album without being one I've felt the need to revisit. It's funny that the Youtube videos are also mis-indexed, as the CD is, so that you hear the last few seconds of the last song before the proper song starts.

Re: VU Photo Thread

[No idea if this has been posted before, apologies if it has. I've never seen it.] Apparently in 1964 John Cale and Lou Reed entertained chidren at parties dressed up as Batman & Robin. Does it look like Cale? Not sure. Unfortunately this isn't what it's been described as. This article is written b...

Re: The Matrix Tapes - COMING SOON

I apologise for reanimating this old thread, but I was wondering why this box seems to be so expensive these days. I wanted to get a copy for a buddy, but it's double or triple (or even more) the cost of what I paid for it back around release. Is it out of print? Or just a victim of price gouging? e...

Re: Symphony survey

If somebody is kind enough to upload this somewhere, I wouldn't complain. (My go to version is still the old LP bootleg, which is rough as hell, but still gives me that illicit thrill from the memory of buying it in the early 90s).

Pretty much everything in that description apart from the who/where/when is a lie.

Re: Transmission Impossible

' rehearsals for the band s first album, bizarrely broadcast across radio waves at the time ' Broadcast? Could there be any truth in this statement? I don't think it's ever been claimed or even mentioned before. This is a lie put on a lot of European semi-bootlegs, because there is supposedly some ...
