Selten hat ein Album zu seiner Zeit so wenig Exemplare verkauft, gleichzeitig aber die Rock-Szene bis heute so nachhaltig geprägt und verändert. Keine Liste der wichtigsten und einflussreichsten Alben der Rock-Geschichte ist vollständig ohne das epochale Debut von The Velvet Underground. -- Radikal und ohne jegliche stilistische Beschränkung etablierte die New Yorker Band eine bislang noch nie gehörte Art von Rock. Einflüsse von <<Minimal Music>> und avantgardistischer Klassik gehörten genauso selbstverständlich dazu wie Pop, Rhythm & Blues und eine den Punk bereits vorweg nehmende Spielart von Rock. -- Doch nicht nur musikalisch, auch inhaltlich setzte das Quartett mit Hauptsongschreiber Lou Reed neue Maßstäbe. Realitätsnahe Songs über Sadomasochismus (<<Venus in Furs>>), Drogensucht (<<I'm Waiting for The Man>>, <<Heroin>>) und Prostitution schockten 1967 nicht nur besorgte Eltern, sondern machten das Album auch zum düsteren, nachdenklichen Gegenentwurf des fröhlichen, unbeschwerten <<Summer of Love>> - und wurde deswegen so gut wie nie im Radio gespielt. -- Dazu das Cover von Andy Warhol! Ein Siebdruck mit einer Banane, die tatsächlich geschält werden konnte (!) und mittlerweile unter Sammlern zu Höchstpreisen gehandelt wird. Zweifellos: ohne dieses Meisterwerk würde die Rock-Musik heute anders tönen. (Quelle: http://www.drs.ch/www/de/drs/themen/musik/pop-rock-musik/4968.50-meisterwerke.html, 16.10.2008)

La Factory new-yorkaise d'Andy Warhol, autour de laquelle gravitaient artistes et marginaux de tous poils, était tout le contraire d'une usine à rêve. L'antithèse d'Hollywood : un lieu où l'expérimentation tenait lieu de projet. Au coeur des années 60 et 70, c'est là que le pouls artistique battait son plein. Ce film inclassable et passionnant au titre efficace en témoigne. Autour du visage d'une actrice filmée aujourd'hui, la pellicule s'affole, se brouille, se disjoint de la bande-son, lui joue des tours. L'aventure du pop art est ainsi visuellement raccordée aux souvenirs des cinéastes Jonas Mekas et Paul Morissey, des musiciens du Velvet Underground, Sterling Morrisson et John Cale, du vidéaste Nam June Paik, de Billy Name, photographe attitré de la Factory, du danseur Lucius Roméo et de son ami peintre, Carlos Hernandez... D'où il ressort que la froideur d'Andy Warhol était plus proche de l'attitude zen que d'une indifférence glaciale. Cale et Paik font chacun l'éloge de la faiblesse et la mettent en perspective avec les méthodes de travail de Warhol, indéfectiblement liées à l'instant présent et aux êtres humains qui lui prêtaient leur présence
