The Wayback Machine

Greetings & Hail Voyagers!

The slight delay now over we're ready to resume normal flights, have your passports ready and form a zig-zag line!

Today's guest hails from Peru and now finds himself in New York conducting a long-distance relationship back to his band. It seems to be working! It's Renato Gomez of Serpentina Satellite!

In their fifth year as a psychedelic force, they've just released a new EP,Nothing To Say, on the Trip In Time label, and-having got a pre-listen, I can tell you it's unequivocally a sonic delight! Highest recommend.

OK, where does this shaman from Lima want to go..?

You've been given a one-time opportunity to use The Wayback Machine; what band would you like to see, in what year, and what song would you most want to see them play?

Renato: VELVET UNDERGROUND: SISTER RAY. december 3 1969. The Matrix, San Francisco (the quine tapes, cd2) 38 minute version.

(Editor: Oh, the abridged version!)

How about this?

Plus this:

..and this:

That's 28 minutes, Renato....you'll have to scream like a Jivaro with a snuff device to demand that other 10 minutes they owe you while there! (Those Peruvians know from natural substances!)

Thank you Renato! Interested in hearing some more? Go here!

Can't say I'm a fan of the Velvets (can't stand Warhol) but I do like the Sister Ray track even if I'm not familiar with the 38 minute version.

not a fan of the Velvets??? once you get beyond the banana cover, there's not a lot Warhol has to do with it. there just one of the most primal and essential bands in rock history. man, that's like saying you don't care for the beatles 'cause you don't like brian epstein or the sex pistols 'cause you don't like malcolm mclaren.
