John Cale:Spedding 75 B:W

This is a live version of the opening track from John Cale’s Fear album, filmed at the Crystal Palace Bowl in 1975 and featuring Chris Spedding on guitar. Cale was known for some unpredictable wild acts in the seventies. At one show he chopped the head off a dead chicken with a meat cleaver – the band left the stage in disgust and the drummer (a vegetarian) quit in protest. He wrote Chicken Shit on the Animal Justice EP in response.
