A nice Kiss from Kim Gordon

Film soundtrack, Sixties

The Andy Warhol Museum has just released a double vinyl album Sound for Andy Warhol’s Kiss, a score written and performed by Kim Gordon, Bill Nace, Steve Gunn and John Truscinski. The music  was recorded live in The Warhol theater on August 1 and 2, 2018.
The package really looks great: it features three sides of audio on clear vinyl, with a silkscreen still image from the film Kiss (1963) on the fourth side of the record.
Kim Gordon is a musician – best known for having been a member of the iconic band Sonic Youth – and a visual artist. The album was released on May 16th, the same day her exhibition Kim Gordon: Lo-Fi Glamour opened at the Warhol Museum. The album has an inserted booklet featuring work and essays from this exhibition. You can order a copy at store@warhol.org

It is by the way not the first score for the silent movie Kiss.  In 1997 John Cale released the cd Eat/Kiss Music For The Films Of Andy Warhol, recorded live in Lille, France.
From the booklet: “The music performed at Lille was a re-working of music created for The Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and performed there with Moe and Sterling in 1994. Subsequently, the sections were all expanded during an intense week of preparation in Lille and this recording contains some of the movements performed there. John Cale”.
Released on cd only, Hannibal records/Rykodisc.
