NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #37 ~ 08-30-14]


“The so-called ‘Summer of Love’ was a lovely summer in New York City, for in addition to the usual eastward migration of the vapid chic set (comprising socialites, Arabs, and whatnot) to the Hamptons, another and even more welcome exodus took place westward, to San Francisco. Inspired by media hype, and encouraged by shamelessly deceitful songs on the radio (Airplane, Mamas and Papas, Eric Burdon), teenage ninnies flocked from Middle-America out to the coast; hot on their heels came a predatory mob from NYC. Roughly speaking, every creep, every degenerate, every hustler, booster, and rip-off artist, every wasted weirdo packed up his or her clap, crabs, and cons and headed off to the Promised Land. This sleazy legion – like Harvey Korman’s goon squad in Blazing Saddles – then descended upon the hapless hippies (and their dupes) in San Francisco. And the rest, as the saying goes, is history.

“But behind them in Manhattan, all was suddenly quiet, clean, and beautiful like the world of Noah after the Flood. If you hadn’t seen a particular lowlife for a while, there was no need to inquire about his or her whereabouts: you knew where they all were, and had a pretty good idea of what they were up to.

“And so, at the height of the ‘Summer of Love’, we stayed in NYC and recorded White Light/White Heat, an orgasm of our own.”

~ Sterling Morrison, Up-Tight: The Velvet Underground Story
