'What Goes On' recorded for Lauren Laverne

This autumn, BBC 6 Music is getting down with a whole load of programmes to do with the Velvet Underground as Lou Reed turns up to present a series of programmes called 'Lou Reed's New York Shuffle'. Is that not a Transformer lost track about tossing off a tranny? Anyway, as well as Lou's series, there'll be special VU programming, including exclusive tracks, The First Time with John Cale (this Sunday at midday) and a Now Playing Velvet Underground Special on the same day. 'Lou Reed's New York Shuffle' is on BBC 6Music on Sundays midnight to 2am. You can listen to Toy's cover of 'What Goes On', recorded for Lauren Laverne's 6 Music show, above.
