Monday's Long Song
This is not the mellowest way to start the working week but I can't think of many better ways than a dose of the Matrix Tapes to get you going, if I keep this blog going long enough I will probably get round to posting all 42 tracks but for now here is an even more frenetic version of White Light /White Heat, un-fucking-believable! If I had a time machine my first stop would be Thursday 13th November 1969 and the destination San Francisco and stay until the 19th so I could watch the whole residency. I wonder if the people present at the time realised that they were seeing a band at the peak of their powers who would go on to hold such a legendary place in the pantheon of 20th Century music or did they just come away thinking "that was alright, a bit noisy in bits but not bad at all".
