Broom St. demos
In Nov '66 we have setlists that show they were not doing any of this material, so the mod-wedding connection seems a little bit speculative.
As I commented first, the by me suggested relation between Broom ST. demos (especialy "Here She Comes Now") and the mod-wedding is purely my speculation [never heard, read anything making that connection].
But just today I read the Rolling Stone article from 2018.Jan.30 about WLWH 50years in which is stated:
"5."Here She Comes Now" was originally written to be sung by Nico.
A sequel to Lou Reed’s mysterious character study "Femme Fatale," "Here She Comes Now" was originally intended as a vehicle for Nico... She reportedly sang "Here She Comes Now" at a few live performances, as well; and while there's no recorded version of the song with her on vocals, it’s easy to imagine her Teutonic tones icily caressing lines like "She looks so good/But she’s made out of wood.""
I don't know where above info from RS is sourced from, but actually Nico missing in those Broom St. demos, I considered not supportive of my speculation. As in articles prior to the mod-wedding she's mentioned to be the main singer during the ceremony. Therefore the song written with Nico in mind to sing it, I consider supportive!
