I had read somewhere that someone was writing a book about her. I have a couple of old, very interesting pictures of Anya--certainly not the way most of you remember her--from her senior year in high school where she was voted class flirt---imagine that! lol

I hope this is the right forum to ask this, so here goes... Does anyone have any stories about Anya Phillips? The reason I ask is I've read so many crazy things about her in various books and I want to know more. Shhh...I'm trying to listen to reason...

I thought she died in 1982. Didn't know the date, tho -- thank you very much for that. Does anyone remember when her birthday was? I understand she was 24 when she died, is that right? Tad Among's website mentions that Anya's ashes in marble box were in his Bowery hallway for a while -- would that be the same bldg as Needles Jones's loft? Daddy quotes Chris Stein as saying he had Anya's ashes under his bed. What was up with those ashes?? Why were they floating around so? Anyone know where...

I was talking to Pat Place last night (at the Jean Michel Basquait 20 year memorial). I was telling her how big Anya was now. She was in awe. She also told me that The Contortions are going to play at PS1 on (I think she said) October 30th. Don't want to miss that one!

Daddy, Very curious about the Basquiat memorial. Is one held every year and could you describe the goings-on/proceedings of this year's a bit? A formal remembrance or a party or both? Thank you-- and apologies in advance--I don't mean to hijack the Anya thread!

No, it was a twenty year memorial. Not every year. It was great to see a lot of the old faces (and by old faces I don't mean to imply anything). Everyone seemed good.

Thanks to participants in this forum about Anya Philips - I'm fascinated by her - and saddened that her contributions to and influences on the music, art, fashion and film of the era are not well documented. In piecing together the facts of her life, I am starting at the end. I am about dig into the archives of the NYPL in search of an obituary. Might any of you know of one? Where it may have been published? East Village Eye and Soho Weekly News are my first targets. Any other publications...

Correction on the date of Anya's death: I found the obituary that Kurt Loder wrote for Rolling Stone. Anya died June 19, 1981, in Valhalla, NY.

You might also read Terence Seller's forward for " A Downtown State of Mind" where she writes in length about her relationship with Anya, as well as photos of Anya from the period. You can read the entire forward by Terence without buying the book by clicking on BOOK PREVIEW. You can also order the book in paperback or hard copy if you are so interested. http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/310348

Thank you Bobby! Just read the forward, very interesting. I also read the "unpublished tome" referenced earlier in this thread with a fictional character "Madame Anya" -- I am fascinated. I've been doing some research and the picture is starting to slowly come together, and I am hungry for more. Thanks again for posting the link. The book looks great.

I am simply stunned looking back now and realizing that Anya was only 26 years old when she left this world. She always seemed to be a much more ancient soul, more advanced than I, though she never seemed old... and she was in fact, only a year older than I. Blessed be, Anya!

Anya died of cancer very early on, so I never really got to know her well. However, when I moved into Needles Jones' loft on the Bowery in 1983, I discovered several boxes of her clothing and accessories tucked in a corner. Since Anya was about a size 2, I had absolutely no use for them. (If I knew then...) The loft had previously been the residence of a great many rock legends including Tuxedo Moon and contained many similar forgotten or "stored" items. And since neither Needles nor I felt...

I remember going to see Anya in the hospital when she was dying. She was lying in bed planning her new fashion collection. "Sadistic Nurses". She had books of her fashion sketches. S&M nurses, rubber hoses and tubes, impliments of medical torture etc. She was living it, even when she died. I'm always so glad when people remember her because she died before she became famous. The mark she helped inflict on the world remains (PUNK) but she will never get the credit she deserves. Oh well,...

Anya was exceedingly glamourous, but it was partly concocted from infamous "heroin glamour" and so has a whiff of horror. The reason no-one who really knew her is posting anything is: 1) there was a tragedy attached to her, inappropriate for bandying around a public board -- 2) because her life was so entrenched in the parallel history of heroin in the NYC Punk underground that quite a few too many famous folk would get tarred with the brush they long ago put back into the paintbox.
