Lili Zeller: French punk royalty.
Who are you wearing?
I'm wearing what other people throw in the garbage.
What is your best talent?
Recycling, DIY...no way!!!! (2 in 1 overlay accident from the photo lab)
Are you the french Poison Ivy?
She, Link Wray, Dave Davies and Mickey Hampshire were my first guitar heroes. The fewer chords the better. I was 17 - first thing I did was put the family's acoustic guitar on the bed and play "I Want You" by the Troggs with two fingers. Since I saw a picture of Ivy and her bush I stopped worrying about mine.
What are your thoughts on the bébé rocker scene in France?
Lame. For cradling I suggest Gino Bordin's "Hawaiian Berceuse", or this:
The CD on Grass Skirt Records is a gem! http://www.grassskirt.co.uk/3.html
What is your Voltage?
One blitz in each hand. I can't hug myself.
Any tips for French bands touring the US?
Don't try to sweet talk a cop who stops you for driving too fast like at home.
Gang of Four, 4 Non blondes or Splash Four?
Splash Four = Splash 1 (the 13th Floor Elevators' song) + the Fender Four
If Jean Rollin had written a vampire movie for you, what would be the name and the synopsis of the movie?
It would be exactly like that tune "Dracula" by Alain Kan. That guy was a legend even before he sang "Killer Man" and "Radio Flic" with Gasoline.
Are you more a cat or a dog person?
Royal Records, ROY 708, A side, second song. [Ed. note: that song is 'Meow'].
Any messages for the kids?
Oh yeah: waste and squander your youth! "Verschwende deine Jugend" as D.A.F. said.
