Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine shuts down after 49 years


In 1969 Andy Warhol and John Wilcock launched Interview, “The Crystal Ball of Pop.” True to its name, the magazine ran interviews of artists, actors, musicians, and celebrities. From The New York Times: Ezra Marcus, an associate editor at the magazine, said by email that the staff was notified in an all-hands meeting earlier in the morning that Interview, which was founded in 1969, was closing and filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Phone calls to Brant Publications, which acquired Interview magazine in 1989, two years after Andy Warhol died, went unanswered. With its striking style, Interview had long wielded outsize influence in the industry, inspiring the look and feel of many other publications. But questions about the magazine’s fortunes have lingered for years, as it faced ever-thinning ranks and churned through staff. source: https://boingboing.net/2018/05/23/andy-warhols-interview-magaz.html #Headlines by: Mark Frauenfelder

Mindbendingly cool Mexican psychedelic music from 1981

I’m familiar with the psych music scene that emerged in the 1960s-1970s in some Latin American countries like Brazil, Chile, and Argentina, thanks to fantastic reissues of rare LPs on labels like Luaka Bop, Goma Gringa, Now Again, and Mr Bongo. Now, the esteemed diggers at Mr Bongo have brought us a stunningly spacey psych record from Mexico: Luis Pérez’s “Ipan In Xiktli Metztli, México Mágico Cósmico, El Ombligo de la Luna.”

In the 1970s, Pérez studied the pre-Columbian instruments and musical traditions across Mexico, from the Maya and Nahuatl to Raramuri and Wixarika. He channeled those influences into his own deeply original and gorgeous electronic and experimental psychedelic songs that make up this record first released in 1981. Listen below.

As Mr Bongo writes, Pérez “delves deep into the past but also exists entirely outside of time.”

Far fucking out.
