TR+ Extended Version – Welcome Back: John Cale
From the Velvet Underground via various A-list producer credits, Cale returns with a radically reworked classic.
Aside from an astonishing 45-year solo career, John Cale (OBE) reshaped the musical landscape as both a founding member of The Velvet Underground and producer of such enduring alt.rock touchstones as The Stooges eponymous debut and Patti Smith’s Horses.
More recently, Cale has revisited his 1982 solo album, Music For A New Society (a stripped-to-the-bone, semi-improvised album), to radically rework its constituent material for a new album, M:FANS. On February 3 – the eve of the record's release – he'll continue his live exploration with a return to London's Roundhouse.
John Cale plays the Roundhouse, London, on Wednesday 3 February. Doors 7pm, tickets £30 - £45.
