Regarding Martin’s Potato Rolls, every person with a soul should boycott anything that stinks of orange

Can't wait to check out the Lou Reed exhibit. Along with the show is release of a reel to reel tape of Lou's very first recording call "Words and Music" which he mailed to himself in 1965 to establish copyright of his songs which maybe can be described as folk-punk given the pretty obvious Bob Dylan influence. Several of these songs would make their way on to the Velvet Underground's first album in 1967. Kind of amazing to think that the genesis of modern music (when everybody was into hippie shit) was created on the LES almost 60 years ago.......

It’s got to be better than the Velvet Underground docu that came out last year. That was terribly put together.
