John Cale setlists


London 1963-07-06


After winning the "most hateful student" award, given by its department heads, Cale pulls the plug at the end his college days at Goldsmiths' College during A Little Festival of New Music on July 6. He performs La Monte Young's X for Henry Flynt by kneeling at the piano and smashing the keys with his elbows.

At the same show Robin Page came screaming down from the balcony, performing Cale's Plant Piece. A potted plant was set on stage and the idea was to scream at it until it died. The plant survived, the audience was not that pleased. Piano Piece (unsequel music 212b) was the third Cale composition.
