The dark side of psychedelia… Brought to you by Andy Warhol

15 Aug

The pop artist Andy Warhol created in the mid-Sixties the “Exploding Plastic Inevitable”, a series of multimedia shows featuring his experimental films, dancers (and actors) from his Factory, and performances by the band The Velvet Underground, who were managed by him.

The show, as it was seen live, must have been a very trippy, freaky experience. This did fit the experimental attitude of The Velvet Underground who, in an age of the “flower power” and “Peace & Love”, touched darker and edgier subjects in their lyrics and avant-garde sounds in their music.

    The only thing I found dark about this video was the absence of light on the screen.
    Much better to listen to The Velvet Underground and stare at the floor.
