Info for Songs For Drella

Andy Warhol may not have created the Velvet Underground as both he and some history books like to claim, but he certainly used his cachet to put them on the map back in the days of peace and love, when the band's dark vision was a cultural anomaly. After his passing, the erstwhile Velvet think tank of Reed and Cale reconvened for the first time since „White Light White Heat“ to write, perform and record „Songs For Drella“, a conceptual suite of songs that paid tribute to the life and work of Warhol, the man for whom the term 'pop art' was created. No other musicians were included here, as the focus was squarely on the pair's lyrics. Skeletal guitar and keyboard accompaniment proved to be enough for these tunes, which merged art-song with Reed and Cale's distinctive avant-rock style. While occasionally clunky, the songs are effectively moving, providing a fitting tribute to Warhol, a unique, unconventional artist (a tag also easily applied to Songs For Drella’s principals).
