Art rocker? Street sage? Blonde bombshell? Mr. Anderson? Lurid laureate of the lower class? Highbrow three-chord scoundrel? Miniature Minotaurs wants your musical remembrances. Remix, reinterpret, reimagine your favorite Lou Reed or Velvet Underground songs for an April 11 broadcast of Miniature Minotaurs' annual All Covers Show Show on WFMU.
Any format is OK, although I think we can all agree that M4As and MP4s are a pain in the ass. Please don't send video unless you're also sending a stripped audio track in which case why send the video? Straight covers aren't likely to get much notice and your quarterspeed version of "Sister Ray" isn't likely to get airplay. On the other hand, your faithful remake of "Sweet Sister Ray" might. A "Coney Island Baby" clarinet quartet? Why not? A mashup of "Holiday in Cambodia" and "The Day John Kennedy Died"? Give it a shot! "8 Bit Me With a Flower"? Go for it! Commercially released tracks are OK so long as the work is your own, but fresh recordings will probably be prioritized.
Please send tracks or download links to email@example.com by April 7 with the subject line "LOU REDUX" and please include any info you want me to know (artist name, instrumentation, inspiration, whatever) in the same email. And please don't overpost this - let's keep it in the WFMU family.
