    Playing the Banana album last night, I was suddenly struck by the remarkable similarity between it and the La's debut album. Then I got to the song There she goes again by the Velvets and realised just how similar it was :eek: Anyone know if this was intentional ??

    Lots of bands were influenced by Velvet Underground. The Velvets may not have achieved universal acclaim for their music, but they have influenced a whole load of bands afterwards.

    I was familiar with the La's track when I first heard the debut VU album (in about 1989) and I couldn't believe the similarity let alone that there didn't seem to be too much of a fuss about it.

    But now, well I don't hear the similarities as much i.e. it no longer sounds like a rip-off to my ears.

    Only one of the tracks is about heroin though, isn't it ?
