DJ, serial band member (from the Angry Angles to Roya and many many more), stylist and quintessential New York transplant Alix Brown invites me into her NYC home for a conversation about the quintessential New York album (recorded in London) - Lou Reed’s 1972 ‘Transformer’.
We talk about how Reed working with producer David Bowie was the culmination of a transatlantic tennis match the Velvet Underground had started in the 60s, why Alix avoided meeting Lou Reed in person, whether there’s any of Lou Reed’s New York left today, Alix’s abandoned VU covers project and working with Mick Rock (who shot the Transformer album cover) soon after Reed’s death.
