Music for a New Society

Pioneering Welsh iconoclast and Zen nomad John Cale has one of the most impressive curriculum vitae of 20th century avante garde music — original member of the Velvet Underground, collaborator with John Cage, LaMonte Young and Terry Riley, producer of Nico, the Stooges and Patti Smith…the list goes on. You can read what he’s been up to lately, as well as download tracks (surprisingly melodic) from his latest album HoboSapiens on his exceptionally beautiful website here.

“The only reason we wore sunglasses onstage was because we couldn’t stand the sight of the audience.” – John Cale
