Last November, I was interviewed by the lovely Aki Higuchi in Tokyo for Japanese television. In the interview, besides discussing my career, she asked what advice I had for young people. I advised to “fight hard for what brings you pleasure and hopefully gives other people pleasure and help.” (And I’m living proof that I practice what I preach!)
Currently shooting videos of three songs with the Ideal Orkestra for Sweatshop Boogie, an in-progress project exploring themes connected to the power of fashion throughout the ages. The songs, Sweatshop Boogie Theme, What’s Going to Be in Your Go Bag? and King of Kicks all feature the brilliant costumes of Ute Bekaia. (That’s me in over-the-top silver splendor). Stay tuned for more information on Sweatshop Boogie, coming soon to a stage near you!
