John Cale and Bob Neuwirth – Last Day on Earth (1994)

Posted by Green on March 31, 2019as


Cale and Neuwirth were commissioned by the Art at St. Ann’s project in New York to produce this song cycle, which keys on vignettes about travel. Its spoken-word-plus-music format makes it a cross between an impressionistic play and a new age music album, but that’s a far more listenable approach than some of Cale’s experiments.
