The End is Near (or, Warning: Impending Metal Machine Apocalypse)

Didn't Lester Bangs predict this would signal the end times? [Note: Seriously, you have to click on that last link. It might be one of the best record reviews in the history of recorded music.] It looks like Lou Reed will be touring parts of Europe this April with his Metal Machine Trio and playing shows "drawing from" the 1975 album.

Note to self: run up credit cards and stop paying bills as this world can't stand long.

[Edit: PS. Lou, I give you such a hard time 'cause I luv ya!]

  1. Wow, this is the craziest thing that I ever heard. And speaking of crazy things, one of my favorite interviews is the one Lester did with Lou back in '74. Sheer genius.
