Written with the full cooperation of John Cale and incorporating exclusive interviews with important figures from all phases of the musician’s 35-year career, this new biography explores the man who has successfully transcended the boundaries between classical and popular music. Cale’s music—from the Velvet Underground onwards—has been a series of passionate assaults on accepted musical forms, and his processes of deconstruction and reconstruction are illustrated by detailed accounts of his albums, live shows and relationships with other artists such as La Monte Young, Brian Eno and Lou Reed. Exhaustively researched, Sedition and Alchemy also contains the first full discography of John Cale’s work to date.

Tim Mitchell is the author of There’s Something About Jonathan: Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers.Review:
"On all counts, a must for John Cale fans." —Uncut
"Tim Mitchell’s biography reminds us just how singular [Cale’s] journey has been . . . Even the danger of overfamiliarity with the Velvet Underground canon can’t blunt the excitement of reading how Cale helped produce such a glorious, unprecedented pile-up of high and low art when he formed the group with Lou Reed in 1965. But arguably the most fascinating aspect of this book is Cale’s post-VU solo career." —Wire
