On the latest episode of Jools Holland, the legendary bad-idea tandem of Lou Reed and Metallica came through, and the styles clash at the heart of their ill-advised collaboration only deepens when you actually see all these guys onstage together. For one thing, Reeds motionless-mummy performance style couldn’t be a weirder match for Metallica’s stadium-rocking gargoyle faces. For another, Reed seems to be standing as far away from the Metallica dudes as possible onstage. It’s all pretty weird. Together, they played the Lulu single “Iced Honey” — the one that’s going to have the Darren Aronofsky video — and a ridiculous muddy-thunder rendition of the Velvet Underground classic “White Light/White Heat.” It’s not pretty, but you can watch it below.
