I've blogged about Dean and Britta before. If I had to pick a favorite band/group right now-it would be Dean and Britta.
My friends Dean, Christine and I went to go see them play last week at the outdoor venue (quintessential California!) Ford Amphitheater.
The performance was a live presentation of Dean and Britta's soundtrack that was commissioned by the Andy Warhol
Museum to accompany 13 of his screen tests that were shot between 1964-66 at the Studio.
It was truly an extraordinary experience. The music perfectly expressed and enhanced the psychological drama of the screen test subjects. Mary Woronov, Warhol Superstar (& one of the screen test subjects included in the presentation ) was there in person to introduce the show. In her introduction she said that she felt the screen tests were living portraits- they were a way for Warhol to observe his subjects without any intrusion. He could sit and watch them privately for as long as he wanted and whenever he wanted. Wow.

It was so good- and went by so quickly! Amazing.

Interesting project.... Sounds like a cool show. I'm not familiar with the musicians. Well, there's Lou Reed, but.... Hmmmm...I'll have to check them out.

Oh, I see, there was only one band. I went and watched the trailer, and I liked what I heard--folkadelic. :)
