Welcome to the Team DFH Friday Night Music Cabal. Because Team DFH operates more or less like a herd of cats, this diary series doesn’t actually have a formal name (last time it was “Friday Night Feel Good Music", but somehow that just doesn’t work with tonight’s offering) but we’re here on Friday Nights to let our hair down, maybe light up a fattie, and get some groovy on.
Tonight we celebrate the seamy underbelleh of life. Think “sex, drugs and rock and roll” and you’ll be on the right track. This diary actually started out to feature kinky songs, but as it developed it kinda grew into a theme that is about more than just kink. It’s about getting in touch with the dark side in all its fascinating, and possibly squeamish, forms.
Because I can’t think of a more ‘underbelleh’ group than The Velvet Underground (and Lou Reed as a solo performer), I’m going to feature a few choice selections from the VU/LR catalogs. So come on over to the dark side…
NB: This diary is not necessarily SFW or for the kiddies!
