Rik Mayall at his best — non commercial video taken at a promo venue where Rik Mayall was one of the guests. He was listening to a speech by some dignitary and spotted the camera holder videoing him. Thanks to P. Adams for the video.

The Velvet Underground - The Boston Tea Party 1967, filmed by Andy Warhol [apparently]

Let’s hand the mic to Jonathan Richman, Velvets superfan, who was often in the audience: “[T]he crowd was FUN!” Wall-to-wall hippies, bikers, Harvard students, Northeastern students, fashion models, professors, drug dealers, art teachers, groupies, MIT students, photographers, local thugs, local disc jockeys, skinny-bohemian-artist girls, visiting dignitaries from the New York art scene, and the royalty of the Boston music set — the local singers and guitar-players in their mod suits strolling around with their beautiful girlfriends.”

“[S]ometimes you just plain couldn’t figure out where on the stage those strange sounds and harmonics were coming from, because of the eerie calm with which they played and improvised in front of you, and because every time they’d come to town they’d introduce at least one new song that would, for better or worse, sound like nothing else that had gone before in rock music.”
