Velvet Underground was one of the early "art-rock" bands. They became intimates of Andy Warhol in the late 60's/early 70's which helped them gain publicity. They did get more television exposure than the "15 minutes" Warhol once claimed all Americans would eventually receive (raises hand).

I have no idea what a "vizkel" band is, but I've never heard that term applied to the Velvet Underground.
