The innovator of the painting machine and video art, New York based Artist, Anton Perich, chats with Heidi Calvert about his journey from Croatia to Paris to New York, The Seventies, Underground Film, Art, Andy Warhol, Max’s Kansas City, Studio 54, and what it was like being young and free in the mecca of art and pop culture during one of it’s most important times in history, before technology took over.
Primal Scream have released the first single and music video for their upcoming album, Chaosmosis. The dance-oriented pop track, “Where The Light Gets In”, features model and singer, Sky Ferreira, sharing vocal duties with frontman, Bobby Gillespie. The video, directed by Douglas Hart, original Bassist of The Jesus and Mary Chain, is a bit of throw-back to The Velvet Undergrounds collaborations with Warhol (Exploding Plastic Inevitable), but is presented with a high-fashion aesthetic, perhaps appealing to a bit of wider audience than Primal Scream’s previous album, More Light, which found the band returning to their psychedelic roots.
“Where The Light Gets In” is a strong showing from the band, who recently dealt with the tragic passing of one of their founding guitarists, Robert “Throb” Young”, a couple years ago, just around the same time that their bassist, Mani, decided to re-join The Stone Roses. With whatever personnel changes occurring in Primal Scream’s horizon, it’s a welcome shift to see the band continually changing ensembles and instrumentation, keeping themselves ahead of whatever genre they continually shape and dominate.
