The Velvet Underground, my ass
Hackamore Brick - One Kiss Leads to Another
I don't know why, but whenever this album gets mentioned these days, it comes with some sort of obligatory Velvet Underground comparison. I've seen them called the country-rock VU, the hippie VU, VU if they were from Santa Cruz... This is all nonsense. If the VU were country-rock or hippies, they'd be as obscure as Hackamore Brick.
If you need a VU comparison, try comparing this to the Squeeze record that Doug Yule did. Now that one sounds like a close match for the Brick. I find both to be pleasant, not ground-breaking, laid-back bar rock records.
