Maureen Tucker

In the mid-sixties, Long Island native Maureen -Moe- Tucker replaced Angus MacLise as the drummer in the fledgling Velvet Underground. With a beat-up four-piece drum kit and minimalist aesthetic, Moe brought an important like-mindedness to the VU. She shared, among other things, a disdain for hippiedom and a hatred for high hats. Her distinct, cymbal-less drumming style propelled the Velvets´ abrasive three-chord rockers, and anchored the band´s free-form sonic mayhem.

Strictly self-taught, Moe drew on her Bo Diddley and African Olatunji influences to create primal, mesmerizing backbeats. Just audit her playing on anything from -Venus In Furs,- to -Sister Ray,- and its easy to understand how vital her contributions were. Moe inaugurated the very idea of the female-as-instrumentalist into the collective rock n´ roll consciousness, and set a lasting precedent. Rrrriot Grrrls, Schmmrriot Grrrls. If it wasn´t for Moe, they´d still be playing with Barbie dolls and filling high school detention halls. But in 1971, after six years as the rhythmic backbone of the immensely influential-- yet hardly successful-- Velvets, a frustrated Moe Tucker departed from the ranks of what had become the Doug Yule-fronted -Velveteens.- Moe got a job, got married, moved to phoenix where she lived for 8 years, and, in 1984, moved to Georgia where she still lives. Moe worked at a Wal-Mart distribution center and in 1989 quit that job to do a tour of Europe with the able assistance of her friends, Half Japanese. Happily, she has been able to survive and support her family as a musician ever since.
