FILTER 47: A Broken Hallelujah: The Incomparable Musical Journey of John Cale
By Staff on April 9, 2012
In issue 47, FILTER's Ken Scrudato spoke with the legendary John Cale, a musician whose journey has seen him through experimental deconstruction in Europe to the Lower East Side avant-grade in The Factory scene with The Velvet Underground. But that was just Cale's beginning. The 70-year-old musician is still very much a working man in the 21st century, most recently covering LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends" and releasing an EP called Extra Playful for Domino Records.
In honor of the man and his mystique, we're debuting the multi-faceted FILTER article all weeklong online, covering Scrudato's story, commentary from some of Cale's comrades (including James Murphy, Steven Severin from Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Factory's Ultra Violet) and an in-depth look at the musician's discography.
Without delaying any further, we invite you to journey deep and dark through "The Incomparable Musical Journey of John Cale."
