I’m in Pittsburgh and it’s raining
Anecdotally, Andy Warhol once asked the Velvet Underground that the record bearing his name be inscribed with a skip during the song
“I’ll be Your Mirror.”
Listeners, faced with the endless repetition of that particular lyric, would be forced to rouse themselves and manually drive the needle onward. The group declined this request. I’m in Pittsburgh and It’s Raining is an experimental portrait of a body double which honours Warhol’s concept in its depiction of both the act and the idea of being caught in a reflexive moment.
