46 Years Ago: The Velvet Underground Release ‘White Light, White Heat’

If you look up the phrase "glorious racket," chances are a picture of the Velvet Underground's second album, 'White Light, White Heat' will appear. That description fits each and every one of its 40 minutes perfectly. Unlike the haunting beauty of their flawless debut album, 'White Light,' which was released on Jan. 30, 1968, drops a bit of the artiness and supplements it with rage and raw power.

36 Years Ago – The Sex Pistols Break Up

"Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" asked a weary Johnny Rotten at the very end of the last show of the Sex Pistols' first (and last) US tour. The show took place at the one-time hippie haven of the Winterland in San Francisco on Jan. 14, 1978 and would be the band's final performance. Well, at least until their 1996 reunion, anyway.

For a band that thrived onstage, and whose live performances are legendary, it's a shame that the only official concert document of the Faces is the less-than-stellar 'Live - Coast to Coast Overture and Beginners.' Released on Jan. 10, 1974, as the group was about ready to call it quits, the album captures the Faces in typically ramshackle form during a pair of California shows from late 1973.
