the book 'the andy warhol museum' was released in 1994 by the stuttgart publishing company hatje cantz to force and accompany the opening of the andy warhol museum in pittsburgh. besides some information on the architecture and the contents and the intentions of the museum, the book is heavenily featuring a cd with some words and sounds and noise herr warhol and his companions have produced throughout the years from 1965 to 1985. the narrator john giorno will lead you through the programme and is present in every second of these tracks; you will get to know what that means.
there are some instantaural snapshots by monsieur warhol himself, off course, by mick jagger, edie sedgwick, man ray, sam green, holly woodlawn, the velvet underground and many others. it is a lot of fun to listen to these sketches of fame, but listening to the 200+ pages of the book is even more fun. so go out and buy the book, if you can.
