One of the first posts I made on this blog was a remix of Lou Reed’s “My Red Joystick” by Francois Kevorkian and given that Lou is not what you would consider to be a club-friendly artist, I thought this would likely be his one and only entry into the remix arena.
Recently I found out this was not the case, as Lou’s follow up album to “New Sensations” also included a track considered worthy of the extended dance remix.
“Mistrial” would be Lou Reed’s fourteenth solo album and the first single lifted from it was “No Money Down”, a music video was created for the song that featured an animatronic Lou Reed singing to the song. At the end of the video, the animatronic starts to tear itself apart. The music video was featured on an episode of Beavis and Butt-head.
The track would be released in the US on 12″ single remixed by Bruce Forest.
