THE VELVET UNDERGROUND

ColeSmithey.comCooler than you'll ever be.

While The Beatles were getting haircuts and making teen girls wet their panties, Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, and Maureen Tucker were creating a sound that shook society to its core.

Todd Haynes utilizes a treasure trove of rare clips and photos of the band from Manhattan that invented Punk Rock. Interviews with such key figures as John Cale, Jonathan Richman, and Mary Woronov tell the story.

And fuck you if you don't like it.
