New York City rockers The Shrieks are back with a killer Lou Reed/The Velvet Underground cover, ‘There She Goes Again’. The bands’ no-nonsense approach is tailor-made for Reed’s track. In the hands of frontman Luis Accorsi, Luis has tread on the same sacred ground as Lou’s New York City in the 1970s, which screams realness that you can feel. The band’s latest album Ode To Joe is out now, but the cover is a stand-alone single. The band shared their cover along with a performance video from the studio, which you can see below!
Where do I get the guts to cover the legend Lou Reed? From Marc Urselli, Lou’s long time engineer to the end. Marc asked me to join in the tribute performance for Lou Reed’s birthday at the Bowery Electric. That night was indeed electric, I felt as if I’d stepped into a sanctum that I couldn’t believe would have me. It did something to me. Something good. I felt compelled to do a recording of this cover, Marc mixed it, and here we are.
