Rare film footage shot by Andy Warhol featuring the Velvet Underground has recently appeared on Youtube.

Dangerous Minds reports that the film, called Moe Gets Tied Up – or, alternatively, Moe In Bondage – dates from 1966.


The 32 minute film appears to be excised from a longer, 66 minute piece. According to a Velvet Underground filmography, the full film lasts 66 minutes and “is a two-reel set for double screen projection. In this film, Moe Tucker sit tied up with ropes, while Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison and John Cale play with food and monkey around. 35-minutes unofficial video copies are circulating.”
