Angus MacLise : Angus MacLise

Not only the erstwhile Velvet Underground drummer but a 60's counterculture icon. One of the original primitive minimalists, involved in LaMonte Young's Theater Of Eternal Music/Dream Syndicate groups, alongside Tony Conrad, John Cale, Henry Flynt, Jack Smith, Terry Riley, etc... A musician & poet, lived his last years in Kathmandu. Restless & free, he's someone who really lived his art. This is a limited edition vinyl record, privately released in 1997 and represented the first serious introduction of his work to a wider audience. Thunderbolt Pagoda came a couple of years later. Besides being a historic release, this is also a very fine compilation & can serve as a perfect introduction to the man's work. This is real psychedelic music, deep, dark and often scary. The real deal. Check it out if you dare!
