old punk raving
Tonight I downloaded a live recording of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable, i.e.: the Velvet Underground with Nico and with Gerald Malanga dancing around in front of the stage with a whip and with multible Warholian movies showing on the band and the wall behind them.

Nov. 4, 1966. Columbus Ohio.

I saw the VU at the performance in Dallas in 1969 that became part of their 1969 album. But that was minus John Cale and Nico and the whole Warhol scene.


touring across the midlands.

there is almost no applause, no reaction between songs.

stunned or stoned? At that date and place I would guess stunned and sparse, as in very few folks there and those there either bewildered or silently estatic.

Me? Right now? I'm dancing in my head and in my room.

Just a fool in love.

Current Mood: jubilant jubilant
Current Music: VU w/Nico: All Tomorrow's Parties

where did you download it?
I've seen clips, but never a concert

i thought my conjuring up visuals might be misleading: it is an audio tape only. I got it from dimeadozen.org, a bittorrent tracker site. It was ripped from a bootleg: "Beautiful Friend" 4 CD Nico set compiled by Jack the Ripper.

Got a url?

That stuff predates me, but it seemed like an awfully interesting period of time to exist.

Theres just very little out there thats creative these days.

I was only just barely aware and was lucky to see what I saw.

http://www.dimeadozen.org is the site. Free registration. Set yourself up with a bittorrent client. The site tries to stay legal by only tracking live and unreleased material. There is some vid as well as audio.

Once you are registers you can search for velvet undergound and see if the torrent is still active.

I do what I can.

Dang. Speaking of dimeadozen.org, I need more hard drive space.
