Playlist 12 April

Mickey Bradley | 16:49 UK time, Tuesday, 17 April 2012

I see that John Cale is approaching Belfast for this years CQAF (first word is Cathedral, work out the rest yourself) and in honour of the Greatest Living Welshman we start with White Light/White Heat, the title song from the last Velvets LP he worked on. Most punk rock bands were inspired by the Velvet Underground but very few took their lead and got the bass player to learn the viola. Of course, it was the other way around with John Cale. Did the Velvets lose something when he departed ? No comment, but I don’t think his replacement Doug Yule gets many invites to festivals in Belfast. Although there’s an idea.... Also tonight, two numbers with numbers in the titles. Can you spot them ?
