    I find it hard to believe that people haven't heard these, but then there's Nick. I'm glad that somebody brought this up and righted a wrong. Seriously, Nick, how great are those recordings? Dig into these shits, too, if you know what's good for you:

    Also about as old as a "rock star" could be. He was born before McCartney, all the Rolling Stones except for Bill and Brian, Jimmy Page, Hendrix... just about everyone, even the dead ones.

    Also, aside from an extremely brief VU victory lap in 1993 or so, he never became an oldies act, and did not seem to give a fuck whether or not anyone liked whatever new stuff he put out.

    The Quine Tapes are terrific and I've been enjoying them today.

    Some of you may have consumed every recording in the history of the world but I'm still getting to that point.

    The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it became a transsexual dopefiend.

    The first time I listened to the Quine Tapes was on a drive way up north to visit a friend in Wisconsin. I was driving down dark, 2-lane highways bumping that shit at insane volumes and having the best time ever.

    Currently listening to the link that Zappo posted above. This fucking band, man. This fucking band.
