The Velvet Underground was an American rock band formed 1964 in New York City by singer/guitarist Lou Reed, multi-instrumentalist John Cale, guitarist Sterling Morrison, and drummer Angus MacLise. Reed and Cale were previously in proto-Punk band The Primitives. Their unique Garage Art-Rock edged with Cale's avant-garde influence and Reed's street-wise lyrics made the VU one of the most influential bands of the 1960's. The first four albums: The Velvet Underground and Nico, White Light/White Heat, The Velvet Underground and Loaded, are classics.
