John Lurie re-emerges with "Invention of Animals"
We are very happy to announce the official release of The Invention of Animals by John Lurie National Orchestra!

Calvin Weston.
Après une soirée à guichet fermé au Nitehawk Cinema de Brooklyn, Bonsound et le Centre-Phi ont le plaisir de vous inviter à une soirée de projection de trois épisodes de la série de télévision culte Fishing with John. (More)
Join us for an evening with John Lurie as he presents three episodes of his cult classic show Fishing with John, and a beautiful video of his paintings, The First and Royal Queen, followed by a discussion with the accomplished artist, musician, composer and actor.
Nitehawk Cinema is thrilled to have Lurie back to present more episodes as well as the rarely seen film he directed called Men in Orbit (1979), his music videoBig Heart, and an artist video featuring his paintings called First and Royal Queen for a multi-night screening.
This letter was signed by most of the people interviewed for the article "Sleeping with Weapons," and sent to the New Yorker Magazine. The New Yorker Magazine was unable to respond.
Renaissance man, rebel, John is a profound and radiant talent. In this interview, we focus on his extraordinary painting.
The article was so undignified, so wildly inaccurate, that I don’t know what to say about it. And this was in the New Yorker, a magazine that I used to trust.
I’m writing because I am a very partisan adherent of Lurie’s music, and an acquaintance of the man himself, and, I suppose, because I am a person who cares about what Lurie stands for: art, aesthetic ambition, sensitivity, openness, generosity, unpredictability.
Wherein we catch up with downtown New York icon of cool, John Lurie - founder & leader of the Lounge Lizards, soundtrack composer, pioneering reality TV show star, and artist. He’s got quite a resume and he’s managed to do it all with his own distinctive sense of humor and style.
John Lurie has succeeded in enough creative endeavors -- film, music, composing -- that it comes as no surprise that his painting career has attracted critical and commercial attention.
