地下丝绒英语:The Velvet Underground)是一个在1964年于纽约由歌手兼吉他手卢·里德,多乐器手约翰·凯尔,吉他手斯特林·莫里森,和鼓手Angus MacLise (1965年被莫林·塔克替代)组建的美国摇滚乐队。乐队原活跃于1965到1973年之间,并且同时由波普艺术家(pop artist)安迪·沃霍尔简单管理,作为豪斯乐队(house band)活跃于Andy Warhol的位于纽约的“工厂”工作室(the Factory),以及在从1966持续到1967年的“爆炸塑胶的必然”(Exploding Plastic Inevitable)多媒体活动中出场。乐队于1967年发行的首张专辑:《地下丝绒与妮可》(The Velvet Underground & Nico),遭遇了销量和口碑上的双重失败,但后来成为了广受好评的一张专辑;且被滚石杂志 (Rolling Stone于2003年称为“历史上最有预见性的专辑”。[1]

历史

早期阶段(1964–1966)

1964年晚期奠定了地下丝绒乐队的前身。歌手兼作曲家兼吉他手卢·里德曾与一些短暂存在的车库摇滚(garage rock)乐队进行演出,并且作为一个作曲家为匹克威克唱片(Pickwick Records)工作。在此期间,Reed认识了一个为了学习古典音乐以获得奖学金而移居到美国的英国威尔士人约翰·凯尔。凯尔尽管对于摇滚乐有兴趣,但也曾和一些实验音乐家 Cornelius Cardew拉蒙特·扬共事过,与扬的Theatre of Eternal Music一起演出过。Young对于嗡嗡声的运用在乐队早期对歌曲音效曾造成过深刻的影响。凯尔在发现里德与他的实验音乐倾向十分共同时他表现得十分惊喜:里德有时在使用他的备用吉他调音时会创造出一种“嗡嗡”的音色。这两个人在排练之后一起进行了演出;他们的伙伴关系和共同兴趣在之后促成了地下丝绒乐队的诞生。
