(Youtube Direktvelvet, via MeFi)

„White Light/White Heat: The Velvet Underground Day-By-Day“ ist ein Buch von Richie Unterberger über Velvet Underground und ich liebe Velvet Underground, wahrscheinlich die Erfinder des Indie-Pop. Auf Well.com beantwortet der Autor Fragen (und enthüllt zum Beispiel, dass der Song „White Light/White Heat“ nicht nur Drogenerfahrungen wiedergeben soll, sondern auch auf einem Buch über Magie und Hexen basiert), mehr Infos auf seiner Website, Snip:

White Light/White Heat: The Velvet Underground Day-By-Day is by far the most comprehensive book on the Velvet Underground ever published. The 368-page, 8 1/2" X 11"-sized book details the group's recording sessions, record releases, concerts, press reviews, and other major events shaping their career with both thorough detail and critical insight.

Drawing on about 100 interviews and exhaustive research through documents and recordings rarely or never accessed, it unearths stories that have seldom been told, and eyewitness accounts that have seldom seen print, from figures ranging from band members to managers, producers, record executives, journalists, concert promoters, and fans.

Also included are numerous rare photos and Velvet Underground memorabilia. The July issue of MOJO magazine hails it as "an impressive means to reflect on the conundrum of what could be the ultimate cult band...detailed and anecdote-packed."
