Το 1968 ο John Cale εγκαταλείπει τους Velvet Underground, παίρνοντας μαζί τις avant garde αιχμές που ο Lou Reed δεν ήταν πλέον διατεθειμένος να δεχτεί. Ακούμε ένα κομμάτι απ΄το πρώτο σόλο άλμπουμ του, ηχογραφημένο ένα χρόνο μετά. Μια πολύτιμη συμβολή του stcigar στο αφιέρωμά μας στη μουσική για φαντάσματα.
In 1968 John Cale leaves Velvet Underground, taking with him the avant garde spikes that Lou Reed was no more willing to accept.
We hear a track from his first solo album, recorded a year later. A valuable contribution from stcigar to our tribute to ghost music.
It was seven o’clock in the morning
Too late to handle the day
At home it was only two thirty
The skin on my wrists turning grey
Stood up, wished us good luck
He changed his attitudes twice
The box in the corner shivered in fear
He was tired and hungry for days.
The next year she bought a new stomach
From Liverpool made in Detroit
Constantly passing old matches
Some sentries and millionaires
Who did? Gallagher did
The same old thing every time
Gave up, more empty cups
They were tired and hungry for nights.
It made life a littl e easier
To have Holland on the run
It didn’t take that long to forget her
My old man and his gun
Rushed out, lions about
Wasting away on advice
A hundred and three, 400 or more
It’ll haunt you for the rest of your life
