45 The lesson was clear. ‘You’re gonna come back there anyway,’ Malcolm told David Horowitz in Juke on 23 February 1991, ‘so why leave in the first place? ’ While Status Quo, Slade and Foghat were popular, Malcolm had something more grassroots in mind. With the enormous impact of Muddy Waters’ Australian tour in May 1973 still bouncing off many a musician’s household wall, Malcolm wanted to reclaim the lost art of real rock and roll, of the raw energy, emotion and drive of Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Beatles’ rock and roll songs like Get Back, and, of course, the Stones stripped bare of hippy bullshit and druggy excesses.
Angus would work on his guitar heroics in his room and Malcolm on song structures in his, an area of the house which was a virtual no-go zone for the younger brother. Over time, their interests spilt together and a strong mutual admiration grew, as did a hair-trigger defence mechanism for one another. The fireworks, however, were never far from the surface. William Young was amazed that both his youngest boys had even considered joining forces and gave the exercise a week before it and they exploded.
Even though the exercise had been their idea, all they did was giggle. In time, Kovac began to notice a link between that laughter and lousy onstage performances. Herm Kovac: ‘It took me about a year to realise that they were hiring the fishing boat out so they could go and smoke dope. That was truly it. ” Then, when I knew they were giggling, I said, “That [gig] was shithouse! ’ Malcolm had never been keen on the name Velvet Underground. So when the band’s sound slowly took on a heavier, tougher tone and their set list began to feature a number of songs by Free, including Ride On Pony, they changed their name — in an act of homage — to Pony in September 1972.
