Art School | Q&A w/ Andy Kehoe (PA)

We’ve been following the magical and mystical works of Pittsburgh based artist Andy Kehoe for some time, and we’re excited to have him for our latest Art School Q & A.  Through his own unique visual language, Kehoe creates mesmerizingly imaginative and otherworldly places where his mysterious inhabitants venture into mystical interactions with the “awe and grandeur of nature.”  We chatted with his brush wielding wizard on various topics from his upcoming show at Thinkspace gallery, his process of creating some of these resin layered works to how he recently delved into the world of Magic the Gathering!

On this day in music history: February 23, 1980 - “Special Lady” by Ray, Goodman & Brown hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also peaking at #5 on the Hot 100 on April 19, 1980. Written by Harry Ray, Al Goodman and Lee Walter, It is the second R&B chart topper for the New Jersey based vocal trio formerly known as The Moments. Recording as The Moments (“Love On A Two Way Street”, “Sexy Mama”, “Look At Me, I’m In Love”) since the late 60’s for Stang Records (part of Joe & Sylvia Robinson’s All Platinum Records), the group are forced to change their name when they break with their long time label, who informs them that they own the rights to their former name. Signing with Polydor Records in 1979, the song is recorded at H&L Studios in Englewood Cliffs, NJ and features musicians such as co-writer Lee Walter on guitar and Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt. Released in the Fall of 1979, the single quickly become a smash on R&B radio, crossing over top 40 pop stations. “Special Lady” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

We caught up with Adam Granduciel from The War On Drugs playing a Fender Paramount Parlor in his studio. We can’t wait for their upcoming record, which Pitchfork called one of the albums they’re most excited for this year!

(sorry if you can hear my dad 🙄)

Not sure if I quite got a look at the Enchantress; I just saw a lot of light…and a brief look at the Prince as he kneels in front of her.  I’m hoping a high-def version of this one will surface soon; I’m more convinced than ever that he’s wearing makeup…

genuinely curious if brian every leaves the G&S studio because he’s like always there in the background of stuff now. we’re all worried about #FreeDenise but what about #FreeBWF ??

On this day in music history: February 19, 1971 - “Another Day” by Paul McCartney is released. Written and produced by Paul McCartney, it is the first post-Beatles solo single for McCartney. It is written as a “thematic sequel” to “Eleanor Rigby”, describing a woman as she struggles to make it through the “drudgery and sadness” of her daily life. Recorded at A&R Studios in New York City in December 1970, it is cut during the sessions for his forthcoming second solo album “RAM”. Backed with the mid tempo rocker “Oh Woman, Oh Why”, the two tracks are released as a stand alone single. Picked for release by engineer Dixon Van Winkle, it is quickly mixed with acetates sent to one hundred radio stations who begin airing it immediately. The mono mix sent to AM radio stations features heavy compression with an elevated amount of bass, that is not present on commercially issued copies which are issued in stereo only in the US. “Another Day” peaks at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 on April 17, 1971. Later in the year, John Lennon makes reference to “Another Day” in his song “How Do You Sleep?” (from the “Imagine” album), with him taking a swipe at his former Beatle band mate, with the lyric “The only thing you done was Yesterday, and since you’ve gone you’re just Another Day”. The song is his response to McCartney after he believes that the songs “Too Many People”, “3 Legs” and “Dear Boy” (on “RAM”) are critical of him. “Another Day” is not issued on an album until 1977 when it is included on the compilation “Wings Greatest”. “Another Day/Oh Woman Oh Why” is reissued in as a limited edition 7" single (packaged with a replica of the original Norwegian picture sleeve) for Record Store Day in April of 2012, and as bonus tracks on the CD reissues of “RAM”.
