Published Aug 01, 2007Because nobody would listen to it the first time it was released, or when it was reissued however many times, Lou Reed has decided to re-record his 1975 feedback experiment, Metal Machine Music.
An album that Rolling Stone once called "the tubular groaning of a galactic refrigerator," Reed will conduct the recording alongside German classical ensemble Zeitcracker, who performed the album (somehow) acoustically back in a 2002 Berlin concert.
Lou Reed: Metal Machine Music - Performed by Zeitkratzer Live will be released on September 3 as a DVD, and some time later on as a triple CD.
