Milo Rock (AGITPOP) and Billy Name (photo) in the limo on the way to the Paley Center for VH1 Lords of the Revolution event. The Paley Center celebrates the 81st birthday of Andy Warhol with the premiere screening of an upcoming VH1 Rock Doc that looks at the revolutionary work that the pop auteur produced in the midsixties. The film shows how Warhol and his Factory provided a social arena for collaborative experimentation that spanned the worlds of poetry, fashion, film, photography, art, music, and the drug culture. Factory survivors describe how Warhol’s speed freaks, drag queens, musicians, superstars, and avant-garde artists helped shape a scene unique in American cultural history. Nowhere has Warhol’s interactions with Bob Dylan been brought to life so vividly. After the screening, Warhol intimates will discuss the legacy of the artist who anticipated our celebrity culture and reality television. Andy Warhol premieres on VH1 on Friday, August 14, at 8:00 pm ET, as part of its five-part series Lords of the Revolution.

"Legendary performer and artist County, who just so happens to be transgender and for years rocked it under the name Wayne County, first went in drag DJ-ing at Max’s Kansas City. She was in town last week and played a set with her new band The War Holes at the storefront of the Chelsea Hotel during a three-day event produced by artist Kymara Lecchi Lonergan. County rocked the house with her usual standards, including “Max’s Kansas City,” “Storm the Gates of Heaven” and a lovely new song called “Rush Limbaugh.” She has always been electrifying on stage and this was no exception, weaving through the crowd, throwing herself to the floor, screaming out to the universe. “If you don’t want to fuck me, baby, fuck off!” - NY PRESS
Our new record "Jayne County and The War Holes live at Chelsea 2010!" is also available now on iTunes and Amazon. Just click the logos to go to our iTunes or Amazon store and purchase single songs or the whole thing for just $5.94!
"The event was put together by Kymara Lonergan (an artist/promoter from New York City), and will also feature underground ante artists Fernando Carpaneda and Milo Rock presenting a film and music installation; an amazing machine installation by Vector (artist/sculptor/whiz); body graffiti by Kaminski; a luscious human buffet (yes, the serving tray is a hot female!) featuring food prepared in Kymara's test kitchen; and a Kymilo Zombie drink special."
A group of appropriately named punk-rockers from Poughkeepsie, Agitpop recorded two albums for Community 3 Records (produced by label-head Albert Garzon) during 1985-86, but moved to Minneapolis' Twin/Tone label for their final two albums, Open Seasons and Stick It. The final LPs saw Agitpop trading in the punk and politics for rock with a bit more pop potential, though they disbanded just after the turn of the decade. BUY FROM iTunes!
