“Good evening, we’re called the Velvet Underground. You’re allowed to dance, in case you didn’t know, and…uh, that’s about it. This is called ‘Waiting for the Man,’ a tender folk song from the early ’50s about love between man and subway, and I’m sure you’ll all enjoy it.” Lou Reed live at Max's Kansas City New York, 1970.
Velvet Underground were avant garde, challenging and will always be associated with the Factory and Andy Warhol. With these art credentials it seems fitting that US designer Mike Joyce, under the name Swissted, has created this beautiful print based on an actual concert flyer from Max's Kansas City in New York and influenced by the Swiss Typographical style. It's a striking print with impact which shouldn't work but it does. Rather like The Velvet Underground themselves.
Museum quality Epson print on enhanced matte cover stock, and printed with archival inks.
