about

Chris Cutlers album description from the ReR website....

JENKINS, ALAN: The Kettering Vampires perform Nico & The Velvet Underground

Genius. Essentially a meta-revision: the VU and Nico album, extended and re-envisaged - either by tapping into one of those parallel universes in which things didn’t pan out in quite the same way as in this one, or otherwise by running aesthetically backwards and forwards at the same time. How would the Shantays have played this? How would the Velvets have approached it 5 years earlier if they’d been British? How would a band today - assuming everything after the end of the 60s had gone differently - work with this material? Or Faust? Time and musical languages get shuffled, but the songs (all instrumentally realised) only benefit. It’s not a simple record and It’s shockingly well produced in a don’t-care kind of a way. Inspired arrangements help, and great playing. Few original things pass my desk. This is one of them. With sleeve notes to treasure. Pure genius.
