Live Lou Reed Review

There is an amusing review of a recent Lou Reed concert in the Manchester Evening News. Here are the highlights:

"clad in grey slinky top and trousers, which looked only one step removed from a track-suit...[b]acked by a robust band of virtuosos who were as comfortable using bows on their basses as they were plucking them, he opened with a tedious jam that bordered on the sadistic."


"as with everything Reed does, there are breath-taking highs and lows from one song to the next.... Crikey, one number even saw the appearance of a Chinese-looking Tai-chi chappy going through his moves. Go-go it wasn't."

But Advanced it surely was.
