John Cale / Lou Reed - Songs for Drella


Ok, i'm back :) Nine month is not so much time, i'm little bit (b)older, i had strange days and happy days, like every ordinary human being. Actualy, i quit my blogging, because higher force "killed" all my rapidshare and mediafire links, and i'm not Don Quixote at all. So, new scheme is very airy, online listening..... :)
And today's post? Pure magic based on opposite, i mean, Reed and Cale, i'm not sure, but they are not so much in love :) And what we got? Naturally, explosion. Musically, sometimes very beautiful, sometimes very wild, very minimalistic and very filled sound. Thematic, this is story about Worhol, 15 short observations. Don't read books about him, everything is here, lot a space to think about Andy's character. I always was against taking knowledge from books exclusively, i'm more into making my own picture based on my experience and some crucial information. And "Songs for Drella" is just that, crucial information.
So, if you are fan of Pop Art (i'm not) this is certanly must have. But thing is, this is much deeper, story about great personality and about unique view of the world, told from a very intimate perspective. Andy said in 1968 "in the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes" This obviously became true, but in that time fame was reserved only for very strong individual, and that is what he was.
