Neil Nathan Inc.
“Neil brings the rock on this one with a vitriolic lead vocal that lends itself well to Lou’s scathing socio-political critique.” – The Vinyl District

“Neil’s cover of Lou Reed’s “There Is No Time” relentlessly blasts you into submission.” – Powerpopaholic

“The best Lou Reed cover yet.” – 50thirdandthird

   

About the song:
“I love reinterpreting classic songs,” says the artist who stripped down ELO and The Move’s “Do Ya” to its barest essence and got Jeff Lynne’s blessing for it to appear on the Californication soundtrack. “I’ve always loved Lou Reed’s New York LP and “There Is No Time,” “Dirty Blvd.,” and “Strawman” are just timeless songs. Those lyrics are even more relevant today. “There Is No Time” is obviously a very welcome addition to the rest of the tunes on my power to the people concept record, Sweep The Nation.” 
About the video:
“I was in pre-production on a few different ideas for the video when Lou sadly passed. So I started thinking more about the lyrics in terms of Lou as a songwriter, performer, and artist, which brought me back to The Velvet Underground and Andy Warhol. When I began revisiting Andy’s Pop Art, I was shocked at how well it thematically linked up with the lyrics to the song. And the concept was born.”
