Out Now — Do Angels Need Haircuts? Early Poems by Lou Reed
We are proud to announce the release of Do Angels Need Haircuts? a collection of rare early poetry from the late Lou Reed. The book traces the period in 1970 in which 28-year-old Reed quit the Velvet Underground and moved home to Long Island. The musician refashioned himself as a poet, publicly vowing to never again play rock and roll, though his retirement from music wouldn’t last. This book, the first to be produced by the Lou Reed Archive, gathers poems, rare poetry zine images, and photographs from the era by Mick Rock, Moe Tucker, and more. Included in the first printing of this book is a limited edition 7” record of previously unreleased audio of Reed’s 1971 poetry reading at St. Mark’s Church.
