ULTRA VIOLET | SELF PORTRAIT

Ultra at Home - bannerLimited edition 2 disc set 
containing private conversations between Ultra Violet and Andy Warhol 
with songs sung by Ultra Violet is available now.

The mania of the 60’s was recording. Whether it was recording telephone conversations with her lover Salvador Dali or rehearsals with her friend Richard Currier, chats with Andy Warhol, or singing in a studio, Ultra Violet was always recording. These audio archives were soon forgotten, boxed-up and left to clutter her staircase for over 40 years until November 2013 when Refinersfire began the process of digitizing the 67 reel to reel tapes. Here is the never before released “Famous for Fifteen Minutes” — a song that will prove to be the iconic soundtrack of Warhol’s Factory — as well as intimate conversations where Ultra and Andy talk about police harassment, their films, the business of art, the RFK assassination as well as Valerie Solanas’ attempt on Warhol’s life. More than just a “self-portrait” of an individual, these discs are portraits of a vanished era.
