Reissue of this 1999 release, which has been unavailable for a few years. Writer, photographer, filmmaker, performer (with the Velvet Underground) and Andy Warhol's main assistant, superstar and closest friend at the Factory from 1963 to 1970. This is a complete New York pop archive from the beatnik era. Also known as a seminal photo archivist of pop culture, Gerard Malanga edited for Sub Rosa a selection of his audio documents from the early '60s to the '90s and invited some friends like Iggy Pop, Thurston Moore and DJ Olive to be part of this vivid archive; mixing the past with the present and the future. Next to the exclusive tracks by the above-mentioned artists you'll find some more from William S. Burroughs, Charles Henri Ford, Peter Hartman, Andy Warhol, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and Gerard himself. The CD comes with a special booklet of photo portraits and poems by the artists.
