Lou Reed's Metal Machine Trio


Lou Reed has a new album out although you might not know about it yet. Metal Machine Trio: The Creation of the Universe is an instrumental double album recorded over two nights at Los Angeles' Redcat. Please visit this link for purchasing details on what promises to be an exciting and delightfully combative release. I am going to get mine ordered as soon as I get moved completely and settled in to my new place.

Whoa I hadn't heard about this. I'm one of the perverse few who really loves Metal Machine Music, so this sounds like it'll be right up my alley.

Also, I love the wallpaper and banner image this week. One of my favorite films of all time, easily -- and also one of the great, if somewhat unusual, Christmas movies.

Sounds like an essential purchase. Be very interested to read your thoughts soon as you get chance.
Just like to wish you and your girlfriend a happy and healty New Year, and keep up the excellent work on your blogs.

Thanks Ed,
I've been known to turn Metal Machine Music up to eleven on unsuspecting listeners so I can dig it...have you heard Fire Music off the Limited Edition of The Raven. Man, I love when Lou gets that brutally noisy.

Thanks so much Steve for the nice words. I am really looking forward to hearing this.

Also check out "Zeitkratzer's Metal Machine Music album featuring Lou Reed". The album was released by Asphodel Records back in 2007. The same guy who transcribed the original Metal Machine Music into a classical contemporary piece of music, performed it with Zeitkratzer. His name is Ulrich Krieger and he also performs MMM with Lou's new MMM Trio outfit.

Thanks Cucumber for the tip...MMM will live forever in one form or another and I think that's a great thing.

Didn't we already fall for this once? I'm just asking.
