Sights + Sounds of the Day

From 1993. Produced by Deee-Lite's Towa Tei. Video directed by Ellen von Unwerth.

Deee-Lite, "Good Beat" - Montreux Jazz Festival.
Years ago, I interviewed Lady Kier and she was everything you'd want her to be. The interview took place just before the group's second CD dropped, so they were still quite huge in the pop world. I asked her if she had any designs on Hollywood (as more than one person has pointed out over the years, she'd have been an amazing Catwoman.) "Sweetie," she replied in slightly bored NY club kid tones, "they'd have no idea what to do with me."
