Re: More scanned articles

Some stuff turned up, inconsequential fluff really, so I've posted it as "Phase55b_Curiosities".

There's a '73 ad for Berlin, plugs for the Reed and Cale documentaries on UK television in '98, and a publisher's promo for the James Young book.

Did no-one laugh at the Biff cartoon?

Re: JOHN CALE BARBICAN LONDON 10-3-2018

Interesting, thanks. It's on YouTube; Cale plays keyboards, the pace is slowed and the arrangement makes it sound like something from "Walking on Locusts".

He's digging deep now so what comes next? Melody Laughter? Or 76 guitars, one for each year of his life, playing "Why don't you smile now"'?

Re: Tones, Drones And Arpeggios: The Magic Of Minimalism

Yes there was a reference there, minimalism influencing some of the biggest albums and bands of the 60s and 70s (Tubular Bells and Velvet Underground). It seems that Stockhausen influenced John Cage whose disciple La Monte Young influenced John Cale. I guess we knew most of that. Then Jarvis Cocker ...

Tones, Drones And Arpeggios: The Magic Of Minimalism

Is this Velvet stuff? I really don't know, but here in the UK BBC4 will be showing "Tones, Drones And Arpeggios: The Magic Of Minimalism" on Friday 2nd March 2018 (that's today as I write this) with a repeat in the early hours. Episode 1 features La Monte Young and Terry Riley so there might be a re...

Re: More scanned articles (Phase 14, Phase55)

Drum solo! Or, possibly, drummer duo, uploaded as Phase 14 (use a link from one of the posts above). I located the missing article quicker than I thought I would; it's 'Moe better blues' from The Bob '94, Moe talking about the '93 tour, U2 and bootleggers (with some reformatting because there was a ...

Re: IWTFM - a new piece of trivia - Buzzcocks

For the record, these are old references but show the Velvet Underground is now being mined for quiz show questions (in th UK at least). I'm sorry if you don't know the various rules but I will not explain them. The Only Connect connecting wall featured Reed, Cale, Morrson and Tucker as a group of f...

Re: More scanned articles

Right, that's it for a while, I'm done. Well, there might be one more when it turns up but it could be a while. This time though the following goodies are offered: update to the Phase 6 1993 tour, just a couple of announcements added as a postscript Phase 12 has publicity interviews for the 93 tour ...

3chord, I'm getting a 'share does not exist' message.
Weird and annoying. The cut and paste didn't work, try this version https://c.mail.com/peterz1970@mail.com/ ... wdvJIhCmBA or use the link from one of the earlier posts.

My apologies, and I don't know a way to edit the bad link.

Re: More scanned articles

Some more scans have been loaded. First, Phase 11, with Lou as a musician in 76 and 89, plus Lou as a journalist in 90 (interviewing Vaclav Havel). Also an NME article from 1990, an interview given after the Paris "reunion". Then Phase 99, off-topic articles with VU interest. There's a lenny Bruce r...
