Run Run Run

What if Lou Reed was a 70 year old Irish man with two teeth?

So you're in Kerry, you've been walking up and down various hills all day and you are now in a pub where everything seems to be made from ancient oak. You have eaten a plate of stew and are now nursing a pint of Guinness by a roaring fire. A trad band is playing in the corner. An old man that looks like he is gurning but in fact is not walks in and picks up a battered guitar. His remaining strands of hair are combed over his dome but he is fooling nobody. "That's Louie Reid from Kilsheelknock," the barman tells you, "they say he went on the boat to the States in the sixties and came back a different man."

I love this one! One of my favorite of the VU covers.
