More Info

New York poet, photograph, performer with the Velvet Underground, Gerard Malanga, was Andy Warhol's close friend and his first assistant in the golden age of the 60' Factory (paintings: Red Jackie, Brillo Box, Mao, Flowers... all the films - including Sleep, Empire, Chelsea Girls... - the Velvet Underground era...).
What we present here is really his unique legacy.

First hand documents from the personal archives of Malanga - it contains rare documents with voices of Andy Warhol, Allen Ginsberg, the American poet Gregory Corso, Jack Krouac, Willard Maas ...
Some come from unknown documents recorded by Malanga himself during the shooting of Warhol 's films...
Other great document: Gerard Malanga, poetry reading at Leo Castelli Gallery, l964... for the first exhibition of Warhol's famous "Flowers"
All begin with a conversation between William Burroughs and Malanga, about "dreams"...

This record also contains unpublished music by Angus MacLise (... Velvet Underground before Velvet Underground and La Monte Young Orchestra with John Cale and Tony Conrad) and new pieces by Iggy Pop and Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth). It ends with Gerard and dj Olive, live at the 'Cooler' of New York, last year...
