Put you all inside my show...
We now have the full track-listing for the 15-track CD 'Pop Art - Underground Sounds from the Warhol Era' that we mentioned last week, (01/22/02 NEWS: BOWIE TRACK ON WARHOL RETROSPECTIVE) and jolly good it is too. As I said in aforementioned piece, the UK is currently in the grip of Warhol fever, with a major retrospective at TATE modern from 7th February to April 1st 2002.
Part two of the fascinating three-part Channel 4 documentary, 'Andy Warhol - The Complete Picture - Shooting Stars' is due this coming Sunday, from which this CD is a spin off. Here's a bit from Channel 4's blurb on this episode:
"Meanwhile, to fund his experimental agenda Warhol also became a commercial portrait artist, charging wealthy patrons for flattering portraits that, through their sheer number, became another vast work of social documentation. Warhol further capitalised on this shrewd business approach by taking on the management of seminal rock group The Velvet Underground, and playing host at the Factory to an outrageous coterie of people that his patronage alchemically transformed into superstars. Although this culminated in an assassination attempt that almost killed him, it also set the seal on Warhol's status as both a star and a brand."
