The Velvet Underground – (1970)

Cowboy Junkies (1988)

“Anyone who’s ever had a heart, they wouldn’t turn around and break it…” The profound madness and contradictions inherent to the human comedy; beauty, terror and confusion wrapped up in the act of trying to care for someone else, another person succinct, penetrating, delivered with intense passion and yearning by Mr Reed and Miss Timmons in opposed but simpatico styles. One playful, streetwise, defiant and the latter forlorn, weary and achingly tender.
