John Cale

Artificial Intelligence

Beggars Banquet
Released 9 September 1985

Having produced Nico's album Camera Obscura (also on Beggars Banquet), John Cale recorded this album at Strongroom Studios with her backing band, The Faction, along with a couple of additional musicians.

This is one of his accessible song-oriented albums, with the legendary Larry "Ratso" Sloman contributing lyrics to one of Cale's most haunting songs ever, "Dying On The Vine".
