John Cale

Post  eddie on Sun May 13, 2012 4:09 am

ATU already has a Lou Reed thread, but Velvets fans demand a John Cale thread to redress the balance:

Chickenshit

^ I rather wish that I'd started my resignation letter to my London Underground Group Station Manager with "Hi! My name's Arthur, and I quit!" and enclosed a CD of this track.

Well, we can all dream.

The legend goes that Cale's band quit after he'd 'executed 'a live chicken in stage to demonstrate the reality of the meat industry.

Only Time Will Tell

I believe ER's QueenJane knows Deerfrance, who supplies the female vocal on this?

Pinz might be able to confirm that.

It was seven o'clock in the morning, too late to handle the day. At home it was only two thirty, the skin on the wrists turning grey. The next year she bought a new stomach, a liver pool made in Detroit.

Johnny Cale's latest Extended Player EXTRA PLAYFUL is featuring a centrepiece 'Hey Ray' which sees Cale-Wail reminiscing about his early days in New York in the 60s. The 'Ray' addressed by the title is mail art pioneer, Ray Johnson, an associate of John Cage and Merce Cunningham from Black Mountain College.

"He was the first guy I met when I arrived in New York. He was one of these artists who was very reclusive. He'd never call you, you couldn't call him. He would just send you mail that would contain all this bric-a-brac, and you'd tip the envelope out on the table and there would be a myriad bits of cuttings, bits of cardboard, objects, whatever. You'd never hear from him for months, and then all of a sudden you'd get an envelope."

Juxter-posed with exhortations to Johnson that he was "driving me crazy", Cale mulls over "all those quirky things about the 60s that I remember" over a hippity-hoppy beat and silty scrapings of soiled sixstring.


Hey, Ray
Hey, Ray
You're drivin' me crazy
Hey, Ray
You don't have to call
Hey, Ray
I'm outta my mind

1963 - on Lispenard Street
1964 - Castro's up in Harlem
1965 - they're having a riot
1966 - the writing's on the wall
1967 - it's the golden age
1968 - and it's all over (it's all over)

It's all over, Ray

The Russians are coming! - no, they're not!
The Russians are coming! - no, they're not!
The French are coming! - ooh la la
The Italians are coming - whipee!
The Americans are coming - aww, shit
The British are coming - not again!

That's not why you stumble
It's the way the cookie crumbles

Hey, Ray
You're driving me crazy (it's all over)
Hey, Ray
I'm outta my mind (it's all over)
