Review/Info.:
"Allegedly, Whipping Boy once did a huge European Tour with Lou Reed. The session bass-player in Lou Reed's band was a man called "Fernando". Every night during Lou Reed's sound check, a straight-faced member of Whipping Boy would come up to the front of the stage, beckon Fernando over and whisper in his ear. "Can you hear the drums "Fernando"? A comeback single. Majestic, fucked-up, beautiful… Why can't all records sound like this?"
