The Velvet Underground

The Velvet Underground

By March 1, 2015

It’s already been over a year since our hearts were broken by the loss of Lou Reed, but The Velvet Underground will be a forever favorite here at UHH. Deemed one of the greatest rock and roll bands, it’s crazy that they were never commercially successful in their time. Oh, the beauty of the underground. Afterall, we have the famous so-called Brian Eno quote that even though their first album only sold a few thousand copies, everyone who bought one formed a band to thank for that.

So we won’t bore you with the beauty and basics we all know and praise, because these NY rockers from the 60s were the most influential band of all time (insert andy warhol, patti smith, sonic youth, talking heads, sex pistols here). Every single one of their five albums hold a special place in our hearts. And this Sunday morning, I found (many) reasons to share some kinda of those loves with you. Please enjoy xx
