Okay, he wasn’t really a hat guy and I know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but Lou Reed has, more than any other artist, provided the soundtrack for my life (and still does).

And they allow you to influence young minds. I’m fearful for the youth of Japan, Shoe. Doo do doo.

Ha! Way back before I got my private school job, I used to travel around teaching at several different public schools - a different school each day. At one of the schools, a home room teacher had heard I liked blues music. He asked me (in front of his primary school class) who my favourite band was, expecting me to say a blues band. I said The Velvet Underground, thinking he wouldn’t know them. Well, he jumped around the classroom excitedly before turning to the kids and saying something like “You know, The Velvet Underground! The banana album! Heroin!”. He had a record player in his classroom (surely my memory is failing me and it was a CD player) and often played them that album. Now, I doubt he explained the meaning of Heroin or I’m Waiting for my Man or Venus in Furs etc, but even I would think twice about playing it to a bunch of 10 year olds.
I’m just imagining mums saying “so what did you learn at school today, Kenji?”
