Watch Lou Reed and Metallica Terrify a ‘Jools Holland’ Crowd


The Loutallica Metal Music Machine rolls on, somehow drowning out the sound of everyone screaming that they should put on the brakes. The latest stop for these two legendary tastes that taste weird together is British TV show Later… With Jools Holland, where they burned through “Iced Honey” and a chugging version of the Velvets classic “White Light/White Heat.” We like seeing Metallica’s preternaturally short-attention-span rhythm section play the Velvet’s minimalist repetition…but we love seeing a crowd of well-dressed British people awkwardly exploring out how to dance to this.
