Reed, likewise, put himself back on familiar turf with the wry inventory of musings and premonitions that became New York Prescribed tranquilizers by a psychiatrist, Reed admits to Cale, whom he barely knows, that he fears he's as broken as they say he is. Having found their gravity individually, they had to find it together again. Jointly produced - could it have been any other way?
With Warhol gone they were now their own most famous collaborators; they gave themselves nowhere to hide. For Reed, the writing of Drella demanded a reopening of the cold case of his relationship with Warhol. He described his quandaries to Blauner: "Should I write it from the point of view of how I felt then, or should I be writing from the point of view of how I feel now? Why was he that way? Why was I that way? These probings resolved in a curious elision of voices and time periods.
This was the Dracula, not Cinderella, side of Warhol. But do you really believe him? Can you? Does he believe himself? This is where Songs For Drella gets interesting. Solanas, who spent three years in prison for the shooting, died fourteen months after Warhol and two before Nico in April To the refusal of some to read Solanas merely as the Madwoman in the Factory, Reed obstinately, impotently demands "retribution" in the tones of a Stephen Sondheim character and as if she weren't already dead.
Listen to the end, though, and you'll hear it's not Solanas but Warhol - moaning "Visit me, why didn't you visit me" - who haunts Reed from beneath the floorboards. Solanas pulled the trigger, but in the failure of his friendship did Reed recognise his own fingerprints on the gun? I'll direct the jury also to Exhibit 1a. On one track of this nearly unheard music, Hard Time Loving - Mutabaruka - Check It!
(CD regrets that Solanas didn't finish the job in '68 before - what else - apologising to Warhol at the end! The "confusion in his mind as to how to deal with Andy," as Cale put it at the time of Drellawas nothing new.
When on the first page of her S. Manifesto Solanas diagnosed "the male" as "trapped inside himself," she had Lou Reed's number. It's no coincidence that Cale narrates the bit of Drella that brings us closest Album) Warhol's actual voice, 'A Dream', adapted from the mostly Cale-positive Diaries. In fact, a whole period of distinction belies the understatement of Cale's performance on Drella. His second collaboration ofWrong Way Up with Brian Hard Time Loving - Mutabaruka - Check It! (CD, is fantastic, but the real eye-opener is Fragments Of A Rainy Seasona compilation of live recordings from his tour.
With no backing band, the bracing, stripped-down versions of 'Buffalo Ballet', 'I Keep A Close Watch'and others force a confrontation with the semi-secret of just how ace a writer of melodies this man is. And then Drella allowed The Velvet Underground's reunion inimprobability on top of improbability. The thunderclap of 60s idealism that rolled across the globe at the end of the 80s, fast subsiding into the neoliberal boondoggle, registered along frequencies as unpredictable as these.
The Velvet Revolution put them all as above-ground as it gets. Before long, though, Album), the old familiar feelings began to surface. A scheduled appearance on MTV Unplugged fell through after Reed doubled down on an asinine demand to produce the recordings.
It could never have lasted. But who could say they hadn't earned the right to take a victory lap, now that the world had caught up to them? Even so, it's exhilarating. For a fleeting moment, a portal opens to an alternate timeline where Cale's viola on 'Pale Blue Eyes' sounds like it was always there. It's that same viola that ties the bow of Album), It's Me', the last track on Drella, which was "very, very difficult to write," Reed said.
How to say goodbye? I drank my meals and napped through most ofbut that final, spoken farewell - "Goodbye, Andy" - nearly brings a tear to my atrocity-cataracted millennial eye. Andy Warhol never meant shit to me. That same year, Mutabaruka had a hit with the single "Everytime a Ear De Soun," while his fiery debut at Reggae Sunsplash was captured for posterity for a live album released in It was this performance that brought Mutabaruka to international attention, and guaranteed return appearance at the festival over the next two years.
His debut album, Check It, was released ina dubby classic with the poet accompanied by Smith 's exquisitely rootsy guitar.
The album was remastered and reissued by the RAS label in A dub accompaniment followed, remixed by Scientistalong with a second dub poetry set, Woman Talk: Caribbean Dub Poetrythis time exclusively featuring women dub and rapso poets. Mutabaruka also struck a distribution deal with the American RAS label, and cemented the partnership with the ferocious The Mystery Unfolds album in Self-produced and featuring a host of guest musicians and vocalists, including Marcia Griffiths and Ini KamozeMystery was totally uncompromising.
Amidst a host of tough tracks was "Dis Poem," a number meant to puncture not only the listener's expectations, but the poet's pretensions as well. One of Mutabaruka 's most entertaining, yet thought-provoking poems, it would later be included in the definitive The Routledge Reader in Caribbean Literature.
Although neither 's Outcry nor 's Any Which Way Freedom was quite as radically revolutionary as Mystery, Mutabaruka was quickly establishing himself as both a literary and musical giant, both in Jamaica and abroad.
His Reggae Sunsplash appearances in and were highly anticipated, and did not disappoint. And while Mutabaruka continued to produce or co-produce his albums, he also occasionally cut singles for other producers, including the hard-hitting "Great Kings of Africa" for Gussie Clarkewhich paired him with Dennis Brown.
The Blakk Wi Blak It was a stellar album filled with tough talk, including the scathing "Ecology Poem" and the equally biting "People's Court. It was wildly popular, but ironically enough that station banned his song "People's Court from the airwaves. Two years later, the poet scored a pair of Jamaican hits, both cut for the Exterminator label.
