In 1968 The Velvet Underground released their second album White Light/White Heat a revolutionary record. It was their first record after they ended their collaboration with Andy Warhol and finally could work on their very own sound. Sterling Morrison once said:
"We were all pulling in the same direction. We may have been dragging each other off a cliff, but we were all definitely going in the same direction.
And you can this in almost every song on this album but the quintessence was Sister Ray. Lou Reed talks about drag queens and a failed orgy while the band is jamming on three chords. And this song is an orgy of distorted, feedback-driven and rough sound where you can listen to instruments like you never heard before. One of the reasons Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto formed Buzzcocks were their both interest in this song.
