New Velvet Underground DVD

Pitchfork reviewer, David Nadelle, says that the upcoming - and, let's face it, extremely belated - documentary on the Velvet Underground, one of the most influential bands in rock history, looks quite promising.

The 85-minute Velvets DVD boasts past footage and interviews with the famous crux of Reed, Cale, Morrison, Tucker, and Andy Warhol, as well as exclusive interviews with Moe Tucker, Doug Yule, and Billy Name. It also features assessment and commentary from Clinton Heylin (author of the book From the Velvets to the Voidoids), Robert Christgau ("the Dean of American Rock Criticism"), Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna), and Malcolm Dome (rock writer and broadcaster).

Released by MVD under the series, Under Review: An Independent Critical Analysis, the Velvets doc will be available April 25 (that's today) along with another long awaited DVD on the enigmatic Captain Beefheart. Be fast and bulbous, lovelies.
