Chelsea Girls has to be one of the finest records ever made.

Desert Shore/MarbleIndex/The End have their moments too, and even Camera Obscura has it's charms. Just be wary of any of the indie stuff she did mid-80's for Flicknife etc. Very dodgy.

Saw her live at a club called the Sensateria in B'ham in the mid-80's. Her promoter offered to introduce us so excitedly we rushed to the dressing room only to find her jacking up into her arse, leather trousers still on. A very sad, pathetic picture. She was pretty unpleasant too.

Calling her John Barnes is a bit off though. She wasn't that bad!

Post of the month.

Why, thank you! Truth is, as they say stranger than fiction.

And just to add my 10 penneth...I think Cale as a solo artist is pure genius. Sure there are lots of duffers in his catalogue but the good stuff has more passion in my opinion than any of the VU or Reed cannon. Bloody good live he is too.
