Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

Thanks lurid, that's good info that I didn't know; thanks bleach, lovely memories of Camden Market where the tribes of England mixed and mingled before it went commercial and before half of it burnt down. Anyway, the documentation project continues slowly and has turned up an interview with Lou in B...

Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

Sounds interesting, do they have tapes from the 1993 reunion ? A lot listed here in the tapes section are totally unavailable. Well, I don't know who "they" are; I didn't really know the sources and the market stalls came and went years afo, so any tapes that did exist are presumably no longer avai...

Cassettes in the UK 89-93

I'm not sure if the "After Hours" tapes themselves ever reached the UK, but between '89 and '93 various other VU tapes could be picked-up from pop-up stalls in markets from Walthamstow to Wapping; I stopped collecting them in '93 when cassettes started to decline and the stalls disappeared. I'm not ...

Collections ...

Just wondering - what plans are people making for their collections of vinyl and cds and limited-edition private releases and books, etc., ready for the time they "go from this land here to that"? Will your nearest and dearest keep them or will the dumpsters of the world overflow? Are there places t...

"The rich johns on park ave" paying to watch sex acts fits neatly with Nelson Algrens "A walk on the wild side" ... coincidence or

Re: Moe's drumming pre and post Loaded

A real shame we don't have any evidence of a 'missing link' period- after Lou leaving, but before Sterling leaving. I'd love to know what they sounded like then. There's gotta be a recording somewhere. It's weird one has never come up. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk Weren't versions of "Frien...

Cale & strings '94

Has everybody spotted these Cale tracks? They are on the PasteMagazine website https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2016/12/john-cale.html underneath a 2016 article about "Hallelujah" and the re-release of "Fragments". There are string arrangements of "Grandfather's House", "Dying on the Vine", "C...
