John Cale - Cleo

Album: Vintage Violence (Columbia,1970)

Recently I have been enjoying John Cale's solo meterial despite the fact that he can write some really terrible lyrics (but yet again Lou Reed wrote howlers). The song Cleo from his solo debut Vintage Violence sounds disarmingly innocent and cutesy especially seeing in the Velvets he played songs about smack, transexuals and other assorted freaks.

Here's some assorted John Cale video's

  1. Will pop back and look at the videos when I'm not @ werk...

    I'm ashamed to say that I only recently 'got' John Cale when a work colleague gave me a burned copy of Paris 1919. It's simply majestic, isn't it?

    I can't believe I lived for so long without it.

    'Hank panky no-how'... sublime!

    L.U.V. the blog btw
