Velvet Underground – Sterling Morrison & Moe Tucker Postcard
A handwritten picture postcard sent by Velvet Underground drummer Moe Tucker, then on a European tour, to Velvet’s guitarist Sterling Morrison.
Dated 29/5/91 (May 29, 1991) Tucker writes to Morrison from Koln (Cologne) Germany, on a postcard picturing Berlin’s famed Checkpoint Charlie :
Dear Sterl – tour going well. Played in Prague tonight + had more than 1000 people! tomorrow we can spend 2 hours sightseeing + then we have to get going. Czeh is very dreary but also very interesting! Love, Moe.
In 1991, Tucker released her third solo album, I Spent a Week There the Other Night, which featured guest performances by Velvet Underground members Lou Reed, John Cale and Sterling Morrison; all four original members of the Velvets play together on “I’m Not”, making it their first studio collaboration on original material since 1968. The next year, the full group reunited for a 1993 European tour.
At the time Tucker sent this card, Morrison was living in Houston Texas, where he worked as a tugboat captain.
We acquired this postcard from Sterling Morrison’s widow, Martha Morrison; her letter of authenticity is included, as is Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity. A great Velvet Underground collectible, from an auspicious time just before the band’s brief reunion.
