Luke Haine's new album, 'NY in the Seventies' leads off with the single 'Lou Reed.' The album is described as "a mythic re-imagining of the New York Rock n Roll scene 1972 - 1979" You can also stream the first track on the album, 'Alan Vega Says'.

It's called "Lou Reed Lou Reed" because in post-punk, everyone says everything twice.

"Alan Vega Says" would be a lot more impressive if the beginning didn't sound so much like Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon."

Absolute truth: I was listening to "Vicious" when I clicked on this link.

Man, The Auteurs were one of the overlooked high quality acts that came in under the BritPop umbrella. I saw a great show at the old 9:30 club back in the day. I have half a mind to read his memoir that came out recently.

This reminds me of a song that I wrote (or maybe "wrote" is a better way to put it) when I was eighteen:

Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison's dead, yeah!




There's more to it, but believe it or not, it gets worse.

Well, "Lou Reed Lou Reed" sounds a lot like Alan Vega, so maybe he'll release a song called "Roger Waters Tears" that sounds like a straight cop of "Sister Ray" and it will all be revealed as a conceptual art thing.

This isn't special.

Yes, that's pretty much what I've always imagined Manhattan looks like.

Totally off topic but sort of relevant: I read Suicide's biography, No Compromise, and mentally "heard" the Alan Vega parts in his "cool, yeah, uh-huh" Jukebox Baby-era stage voice. Then I saw an actual interview and he sounded like... my dad.

I'm not sure how I feel about that. It required some working through.

No thread like this would be complete without a link to the Butthole Surfer's song Comb, aka Lou Reed.
