This week's episode is the opposite of a Christmas miracle: a veritable log of reindeer shit left for us to scrape off our shoes till the end of eternity, the album Lulu by Lou Reed and Metallica began as an improbable but intriguing pairing that soon became one of the most widely panned artistic outputs by all of the musicians involved in its production. Over an hour and a half long, Lulu boggles the mind with its breadth of hatred for its audience, plodding through strained, off-key warblings from a spiteful and potentially senile Reed juxtaposed with 2 chord metal riffs from a bafflingly neutered Metallica. We invited local comedian Nick Ortolani to get down in the trenches, and boy do we bet he regrets that decision. Dive on in, cuz it's gonna get wild...on this week's Make it Stop: Lulu.
