Blonde Goddess to Dark Haired Musician [13 Oct 2008|01:09pm]



Nico died 20 years ago and would be 70 this month. As mentioned in my last post John Cale organised a tribute night in London which took place at the weekend. I think it was professionally filmed so will look out for this. Apparently, Cale was also wearing go go boots as a tribute to Nico. (He so copied me!)

John Cale shares his memories of Nico and her music career on BBC Radio 4 at the weekend and this interview can be heard here 

Here is a photograph of James Dean Bradfield singing at the concert (Cale on keyboards):

A Tribute To Nico [03 Oct 2008|12:04am]



John Cale
is leading a tribute titled Life Along The Border: A Tribute To Nico which will be held on Saturday 11 October at the Southbank Centre, London. Acts confirmed are as follows:


  • Broadcast
  • Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
  • The Fiery Furnaces
  • James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers)
  • Nick Franglen
  • Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance)
  • Liz Green
  • Natasha Khan
  • Mark Lanegan
  • Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse)
  • Peter Murphy (Bauhaus)

More names to be announced.

» southbankcentre.co.uk | Ticket Office: 0871 663 2500

I think that it is very fitting that John Cale is involved with this as he helped Nico on her way to being an established artist. Also Peter Murphy from Bauhaus knew Nico and worked with her.

I just wish I could go but only found out and so can't afford it.

So I bought these boots instead to pay homage:

Can anyone make out all the titles? I can only read Blood Dracula, Flesh, Heat, and Trash.

Warhol muse 'lost baby by Dylan'
Inspiration for Blonde On Blonde was forced by doctors to have an abortion, claims brother

Olivia Cole: The (UK) Sunday Times January 7th 2007

Ever since their 1960's heyday at the centre of New York's most hedonistic set, rumours have swirled that Bob Dylan had an affair with a peroxide-blonde, leggy muse of Andy Warhol, the Pop Artist.

Now the brother of Edie Sedgwick, played by Sienna Miller in a forthcoming film called Factory Girl, has given a full account of what he claims was her "deep love" for the singer. He said she conceived a baby she claimed was Dylan's, but was forced by doctors to have an abortion.

The supposed love affair has been at the centre of a legal row between the singer, 65, and the makers of Factory Girl, due to be released next month. Sedgwick died in 1971, aged 28, of a barbituate overdose.

Edie's brother Johnathan, speaking from his home in Idaho, said that Edie told him at the time about a relationship with Dylan and an abortion. "She told me she had to be held down by four men because she fought them so hard to keep the child she claimed was Dylan's. She did tell me later that this was the saddest moment of her life - losing Dylan's child."

In the film, set in the mid-1960s, Edie meets a musician played by Hayden Christensen - who happens, like Dylan, to be a tall, dark-haired, moody harmonica-playing folk singer.

At the time - 1965, as in real life - Edie was a leading light in the Factory. Warhol's tinfoil-papered studio-cum party venue. She has since been credited as the inspiration for the album Blonde on Blonde, one of Dylan's best known, and in particular for two songs on the record - Just Like A Woman and Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat.

Dylan has only once spoken about Edie, in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in 1985, when he said: "She was a great girl ... I did know her, but I don't recall any type of relationship if I did have one, I think I'd remember."

Although Factory Girl does not mention an abortion, it's story of an affair has infuriated Dylan. Last month, Orin Snyder, the star's lawyer, wrote to Harvey Weinstein, Factory Girl's producer, saying: "Even though Mr Dylan's name is not used, the portrayal remains both defamatory and a violation of Mr Dylan's right of publicity."

George Hickenlooper, director of Factory Girl, said: "No changes were made because of the Dylan legal letter. We feel confident that Dylan has no case."

Warhol called Edie one of his "superstars" and she starred in several of his films, but also became caught up in the drug-fuelled life of the Factory "Some of the guests left in limousines some in ambulances." Nat Finkelstein, a photographer and Factory regular, has said. Edie's intense friendship with Warhol soured when he became jealous of her friendship with Dylan.

Johnathan Sedgwick described how relieved he had been when Edie met Dylan, whom he saw as a calming influence on her. "She called me up and she said she'd met this folk singer in the Chelsea Hotel and she thinks she's falling in love. I could tell the difference in her, just from her voice, she sounded so joyful instead of sad. It was later on she told me she'd fallen in love with Bob Dylan.

"I'm sure it was deep love. I don't think she would have felt that way if it hadn't been."

Johnathan Sedgwick, a retired aeroplane designer, is unsure when the friendship fizzled out. But he said the abortion took place soon after Edie was badly hurt in a motorcycle crash.

"She was claiming to be Edie but they didn't believe her", he said. Eventually, doctors consigned her to a mental hospital where she was treated for drug addiction. Staff found she was pregnant but, fearing the baby had been damaged by her drug use and anorexia, forced her to have the abortion.

Dylan's lawyers declined to comment this weekend.

With all the Edie fashion mania, I found this post on www.edienation.com really refreshing. Edie was an incredible artists, and should be recognized as such- thats what I think is really great about Melissa Painter and David Weissman's project. And plus, the screen tests look great- very factory!

“It must be real”
Posted on Wednesday 29 November 2006

Edie was a filmmaker, a collaborator and artist with other underground and experimental filmmakers at a time when making a non-Hollywood film was almost a revolutionary act. Like you she was young at a time when a wave of technological advancements– new video camera, audio recorders and film cameras– were putting power in the hands of the people to tell their own stories. This is a pursuit she believed in fiercely. She said often to fellow adventurers in her filmmaking pursuits, “It must be real, if it isn’t real, there is no movie.” On the eve of the release of a HIGHLY fictionalized Hollywood account of Edie’s life, we hope you will join us in our Internet and video experiment of making real screen tests of real people. WE know you can tell the difference, as she would have wanted, between what is real and what is not.

-Melissa Painter

“I do love Alice in Wonderland though. That’s something I think I could do very well. Don’t you think we ought to do an A.W.? A.W.’s Alice in Wonderland? Andy Warhol’s Alice in Wonderland? A.W. stands for a lot of things, I understand. It, uh, it would make a fantastic film. So I wanted somebody to write the script for it, in a modern sense. Think it would be the most marvelous movie in the world. If it could be done. Don’t you think? Really I don’t think they’ve done one since they did a Walt Disney one- which isn’t really doing it. In a sense it is, but not in the way it really should be done. What’s needed right now is a real scene. I mean not just cartoon characters but the actual character of people because there’s so many fantastic people that you might as well use the people.”

– EDIE 1965

“To be an underground filmmaker… one felt that you were engaged in forbidden activity, which of course lead us to Andy and 47th St and the factory because Andy was hosting this whole feeling of rebellion in image where we could all participate in doing things that were ridiculous and absurd…and so to get a bunch of people who all feel that the sky’s the limit to start being able to do crazy ridiculous image with Andy…

[John, what did it feel like to be in a movie that Warhol directed?] Well, it felt like you were talking your pants off. It was embarrassing. You wondered what were you doing? Why are you doing this? And yet at the same time you knew… You didn’t know then, but to think about it now, I mean imagine you are there and there’s a hundred million dollars worth of art lying around on the floor, and these people fooling around with cameras. Andy, and I’m there with him doing the same thing, and there’s Edie, and we’re all there doing this. And so on the one hand there’s the rebellion, because you know you’re not supposed to, and on the other hand you know that its really really important, and yet its just going to disappear. So that was a peculiar feeling. ”

Has anyone here read Please Kill Me by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain? It's about punk rock and it has interviews with Lou Reed, Gerard Malanga, Paul Morrissey, Maureen Tucker, Nico, Billy Name, etc etc. I'd say this is probably the most interesting book I've ever read so go buy it!

Just wanted to introduce myself on here. My name is Maria and I live in Maryland. I've been a fan of the 60's and 70's and lately have really gotten interested in Andy Warhol and his gang. I've been watching some DVDs (2 documentaries of Andy, "I Shot Andy Warhol," "Ciao! Manhattan," and "Pie In the Sky") and several books. Right now I am reading "Factory Made."

I'd love to make some new friends here with similar interests.

Warhol On Sale! [22 May 2006|03:56pm]

"Warholabilia" up for auction in New York
Mon May 22, 2006 6:48 PM ET

By Chris Michaud

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Don't have $10 million for an Andy Warhol Campbell's soup can painting? A mere $1,000 could buy the late artist's paintbrush or paint-splattered shoes when an array of his possessions hit the auction block next month.

The items, included in a sale of celebrity memorabilia announced by Christie's on Monday, were culled from gifts that Warhol bestowed on Jeffrey Warhola and his other nephews when they visited their famous uncle from the late 1960s until his death in 1987.

Pre-sale estimates are as low as $600 for the belongings of the Pop Art icon, whose subjects included Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the famed red-and-white soup can.

The market for Warhols has been especially hot in recent years, with his art works regularly selling for several million dollars.

The auction, set for June 22 in New York, features his clothing, roller skates, cowboy boots, sunglasses and neckties.

One of the artist's trademark silver wigs is estimated by the auction house to sell in a range of $4,000 to $6,000. Other items include paint-splattered shoes and blue jeans.

Also up for sale are Polaroid print portraits that Warhol took of many of his friends including author Truman Capote, musician Mick Jagger, actor Sylvester Stallone, entertainer Liza Minnelli and boxer Muhammad Ali. The photo of Ali is signed by the champion and the auction house estimates it could go for $6,000 to $9,000.

Prices at memorabilia auctions can skyrocket. Items belonging to Kennedy Onassis sold for as much as hundreds of times their estimated pre-sale value, as have those belonging to Marilyn Monroe.

Additional items at the auction include scores of possessions from actor Clark Gable's estate, including his Rolex watch, a monogrammed cigarette case and a copy of "Gone With the Wind" inscribed to Gable by the film's producer, David O. Selznick.

Monroe's address book from the early 1960s will also be auctioned off, along with the screen siren's heavily annotated script from the musical "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," each estimated to go for $10,000 to $15,000.

Items associated with Marlon Brando, Marlene Dietrich and Judy Garland will be up for sale as well.
