RIP Lou Reed

Oct
27
The music world lost another great today - Lou Reed of Velvet Underground fame passed at the age of 71.  I guess ultimately it's to be expected that "Walk On The Wild Side" will be the most over-shared of his works for the next 48 hours.  If you _aren't_ familiar with it, have a listen:

And the colored girls go
"Doo do doo do doo do do doo ..."

I can confess I wasn't always the biggest fan of his works directly... but the man and his band influenced a TON of artists and musicians that have touched my life on a much deeper level.  Dave Navarro is one such example - spend a moment with his copy of "Venus In Furs".


Now tell me, lyrically, this ISN'T powerful art!

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart
Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin, Severin awaits you there
I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears
Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart
Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
Severin, down on your bended knee
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
Taste the whip, now plead for me
I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears
Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Severin, your servant comes in bells, please don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

The best place to hear my most recent material is a bit of a toss up, because I've published it in a number of places.

The DEFINITIVE location for my staying in contact with my current projects is http://maslowsbasement.com.

_Some_ of my most recent cuts are available in the player below, but I'll be moving away from Soundcloud eventually.
