Pressestimmen

Up Tight is perhaps the definitive Velvet Underground biography... and never shies away from the sleazy truth. (Allan Martin Kemler Rockpile)

Up-Tight: The Velvet Underground Story by Victor Brockris and Gerard Malanga is a pretty candid peek into this legendary group. (John Koenig Discoveries For Record and Cd Collectors)

Told through delightfully bitchy quotes and contemporary diary entries... (Victor Bockris Blender) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

The best-selling account of The Velvet Underground phenomenon is now recognised as one of the greatest rock books ever written. First published in 1983, it is based on interviews with all four members of the Velvets, as well as others who became part of Andy Warhol's circle of artistic collaborators.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Gronk am 13. September 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Das Buch ist ziemlich interessant zu lesen und gibt viele verschiedene Meinungen/Ansichten über das Dasein der Velvet Underground wider.

Malangas Selbstdarstellung nervt ein bisschen, sein Beitrag bestand schliesslich aus Tanzen und sonst nicht viel mehr, vor Allem der "unveröffentlichte nie abgeschickte" Brief an Warhol und die "geheimen Tagebucheinträge" erscheinen schon ein wenig an den Haaren herbeigezogen bzw. nachträglich und für dieses Buch geschrieben.

Was bleibt: Eine interessante Zusammenstellung mit interessanten Anmerkungen, welche zumindest bei mir eine gewisse Melancholie hinterlässt, Velvet Underground niemals live gesehen zu haben.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Bryan E. Leed am 21. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a fantastic book! It covers alot of the early formative years, and is worth getting just for that.
I do think that it starts to lose its depth when it comes to the later years, their last two studio albums (which are highly under-rated in comparison to the first two experimental albums). But what this book covers concerning the formation and first two albums is an excellent piece of rock n roll history! Highly Recommended!

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 17. Juni 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
An intelligent and entertaining approach to one of the most influential (read: they didn't sell a lot of records in their heyday)rock bands ever. Great pix too. The Velvets epitomized a time when artists didn't feel narrowly compelled to practise any ONE discipline, but rather people were less afraid to combine ideas, cross genres and disciplines. The spirit of the time, to me, suggests Possibility. Yes, Warhol et al. could drift into pretention, but that's the price (and it's really not such a costly one) you pay for being daring. You may go too far sometimes, and by today's (stupid?) standards, perhaps some of the VU "happenings" might appear contrived. But I don't think so! Altogether, VU rules. Way ahead of their time, and before it too. And beside it.
Buy this book, but more importantly, buy into the Underground.

Invaluable sourcebook 25. Juli 2004
Von B. Scrivener - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
UP-TIGHT is an invaluable sourcebook for VU fans and those simply curious about the band that inspired their mere 10,000 fans to start 10,000 bands of their own, as the cliche goes. I'm delighted to see that it is back in print.

Bockris wisely lets the participants speak for themselves, for the most part. Since virtually all (save Lou Reed) had retreated from public life (that is, gotten straight jobs) at the time the book was written, they provide a refreshing perspective as compared to what one usually sees in this type of book.

The standard of writing and research here is much higher that your typical 'rock book'. Not only does it give Velvet Underground the serious treatment they deserve, it is also a worthwhile resource for those interested in Andy Warhol.

As perfect of a document as we are likely to have 21. September 2006
Von David Alston - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Some 20 years after it's first publication, UP-TIGHT remains the definitive history of The Velvet Underground, and is also one of the essential glimpses into the social and creative world of Warhol's Factory.

Very well illustrated, with many black and white photos documenting the era, Bockris compiles and edits an oral history of the time, with valuable input from all of the key players.

Highly recommended for those with any interest in the Velvets, or Warhol, and an essential snapshot of America's 60s cultural landscape.

She couldn't believe what she heard at all .... 15. Dezember 2010
Von M. Bromberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A concise biography that details the trajectory of the Velvet Underground month-by-month, year-by-year, as the group evolves from Lou Reed's pop-rock roots to Andy Warhol patronage and art-rock noise, through a subdued, confessional third album and finally, "despite all the amputations," to rock'n'roll. Victor Bockris has written a witty, detailed story with first-person accounts, full of the band's personal turmoil, drug use, and ego-fueled confrontations. The interviews illuminate the art of the music and the band's struggle for commercial success in equal measure, two opposing goals that lead to the inevitable end of the band with centrifugal force. Great black-and-white photographs capture a band as interested in its own look as in its music. This is much more than a fan's book, and the Velvets' highwire act performed without a net ought to dispel any notion of the monolithic "peace and love" image of Sixties' music.
Outstanding photos, inside dirt 10. Oktober 2007
Von Jeffrey D. Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book has contributions from several of Warhol's factory insiders (Victor Bockris, Gerard Melanga) who were personally involved with the Velvet Underground's groundbreaking shows in NYC (in addition to their status as card-carrying members of Warhol's film-and-silkscreen juggernaut). Their recollections, letters, and photographs from their time with the band paint a vivid picture of a beautifully chaotic scene peopled by colorful, indulgent artists and hipsters in a shimmering New York. The city is a character in its own right; an actor of nearly perceptible intent.

The photos alone are worth the price of admission. They are beautiful and artful records in black and white of the band and the surrounding Factory maelstrom through the most vivid and productive period of their shared existence. Despite the insider access of the photographers, they do little to deflate the Velvet's dark mythology. Rather, they distill perfectly the self-created mythology of the band as they birthed it.

There are great stories here, too, that could only have been told by firsthand participants. They offer rich portraits of the band and supporting cast, with intimate details of the band throughout their existence. From Lou Reed's early influences, to Warhol's insertion of Nico as the band's icy continental seer of doom, to accounts of their wild psycho-sexual art-rock shows, to their uncomfortable role on the fringes of fame, to the deterioration of the relationship between Reed and Cale, this is an essential text for any serious fan of the Velvet Underground.
