Dean Wareham on Unseen Warhol for The Line of Best Fit

Dean Wareham has written about the Exposed: Songs for unseen Warhol films project for online magazine The Line of Best Fit. The show, featuring Dean, Eleanor Friedberger, Tom Verlaine and Matin Rev comes to Europe next week with dates in Nantes,

For me this show is a like strange dream come true; I was given the title Guest Musical Curator and asked to come up with a list of performers. I first asked my musical heroes Tom Verlaine and Martin Rev (who made two of the most important albums of the late 20th century, Marquee Moon and Suicide respectively). I had met Eleanor Friedberger and Bradford Cox a few years ago at Primavera Sound (Eleanor on the bus going to the festival, Bradford on a bus leaving), and those were my next calls. Everyone said yes, just as I had. It feels like no one says no to working with Andy Warhol. If you score film, you count yourself lucky when you get to work with a great filmmaker, even if he’s not present to give direction.

Bradford Cox will now not be appearing due to a family bereavement
