The musical choice is as odd as the visuals, to say the least, ’60s avant garde proto-punk inspired by Leopold von Sacher Masoch, but since it was famously performed at Andy Warhol’s The Factory, it’s a real Friday Factory Tune.
Not sure if it was marketing or coincidence, but 1993 was also the year the Velvet Underground reformed for a European tour in its original line-up, Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison and Moe Tucker, missing only Nico, who died in 1988. Not a very good reunion — much better was Reed and Cale for “Songs for Drella” — but it had its moments, like Moe stepping out behind her bass drum to sing, “I’m Sticking with You.”
Moe has been a topic in the blogosphere this month. Turns out the one-time drummer for the demi monde is a supporter of the Tea Party. Hipsters are shocked.
