I’m always shocked to find people who were not affected by the Velvet Underground and Nico album during their teenage years. That album is a perfect soundtrack for those years of discord and boredom. The glimpses of kinky sex and drug use and the day to day life in a big chaotic city showed us that things were gonna be exciting and dangerous and dark in the future, and life was worth living.
RIP Lou Reed. Thanks for the tunes.
