 Edie Sedgwick   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Edie Sedgwick is as much a platform for ambiguous postmodern musings about the culture of a celebrity as it is a rock band.
Edie Sedgwick was originally, of course, the most infamous groupie of all time, one of Warhol's "superstars" and (supposedly) the subject of Dylan's "Just Like a Woman" and "Like a Rolling Stone" before she died of the inevitable drug overdose at 28.
Edie Sedgwick has no sense of humor: stale laughter is irrelevant to our living, breathing politic.

Edie Sedgwick social butterfly of the Warhol era has been brought back to life by Justin Moyer (SuperSystem/El Guapo).
I was struck by his relationship with Edie Sedgwick who, in the tome, was presented as a Paris Hilton figure -- a person who, at best, was famous for being rich and, at worst, was famous for being famous.
Edie sings about celebrities -- an inherently ridiculous, superficial subject matter -- because they are the only vehicle by which she can present her political/economic/psychosocial manifesto to a world tired of political/economic/psychosocial manifestos.

On the outside, she was Edie, the Youth Quaker, on the inside she was a tragically lost girl who descended into the Stygian depths of fame, drugs, anorexia and tragedy.
Edie's short life, as described in this convoluted biography induces both envy and pity, we envy the beautiful, spoilt celebrity at the centre of a wild hedonistic carnival, who seems to have everything and obey no-one, and we pity the poor lost soul who is used, abused, abandoned and maltreated at every turn.
Edie's meteoric rise to instant stardom as the jewel in the crown of the 1960's Warhol empire is as tragic as it is thrilling, and the biography makes you feel every minute of it.

For the ironically disadvantaged, the original Edie Sedgwick was a Warhol superstar, which means she was not a superstar at all.

Edie Sedgwick is Justin Moyer doing everything you hear and see on this disc.
In both cases, Edie Sedgwick performed songs in a disco-punk fashion named after and concerning celebrities.
To Edie's credit, there are also flights of fancy like the minute-long Big Black homage to Pump Up The Volume, the role call of Colonial Marines in "Sigourney Weaver", and the reinvention of Molly Ringwald as a biological weapon, that belie any attempts to arrive at anything remotely approaching significance.

It's probably a good idea to see Sedgwick on screen and read about her as she was before Factory Girl, the Sedgwick biopic starring British starlet/fashionista Sienna Miller, hits theaters.
Her backstory as a blueblood rebelling against her family further added to the mystique, but she didn't make her wealth the core of her public presentation, unlike certain other "celebutantes" of today.
When Sedgwick overdosed, the 60s were ending in a nasty hangover, for her and everyone else.
