About This Act

From Wikipedia:

The Velvet Underground was an American rock band from New York City, active between 1964 and 1973. Formed by singer/guitaristLou Reed, multi-instrumentalist John Cale, guitarist Sterling Morrison, and drummer Angus Maclise (who was replaced by Maureen Tucker in 1965), the group was briefly managed by the pop artist Andy Warhol, and served as the house band at the Factory and Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable events from 1966 to 1967. The provocative subject matter, musical experimentation, and oftennihilistic attitudes explored in their music would prove influential in the development of punk rock and alternative music.
