Published Feb 15, 2011Here's an awesome nugget of rock'n'roll gold: a vintage documentary about the Velvet Underground. The 52-minute program first aired in the '80s as part of the long-running British series The South Bank Show and features vintage footage from avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas.
Our recent encounters with members of the Velvet Underground have included right-wing political rallies and batshit crazy dog concerts. That's why it's nice to be reminded about why we first fell in love with the band in the first place.
