After we had made the song called “We Are The Sinners” we felt that we worked so well together that it ended up with me being one of the All Stars. This band is really not like most bands and being part of the Chaos All Stars means a lot of creative challenges.
What is different about working with this band than your previous collaborations?
I think it was the concept of the band which made everything easier. You don’t come into the band and feel like you will step on someone’s toes. But still I think all of my collaborations have been great in different ways! I enjoy working with different artists, taking on new approaches. It’s like my modeling, I like a good challenge. This one though happened to end up with me in the band due to a number of reasons.
Your new single is a theme song for the film “The Iron Sky” how did that come about?
Oh my. That film seemed very interesting, so we made a song based on it. Then they wanted to use it for the Director’s Diary, and who can say no to that!?
How is it different writing a song for a film than just purely as music?
When doing something for a film you have a story, a theme to begin with and most of the times also some kind of visual concept. With Iron Sky you knew that it’s a comedy about Nazis who have lived on the moon since WWII and now they return to earth for a new world war or something... We just thought of what a song that would suit the movie would be like. It’s an anthem sort of and – just to be clear – it’s not a celebration of war, rather the opposite.
You recently opened for Front 242, what was that experience like?
Very fun! They are nice down-to-earth blokes with a sense of humor. They were also very fascinated by my latex outfit. When one of my band mates were rubbing me in with shine one guy called out “I love Sweden”! But… when I told them it was the guys turns to rub each other in… they didn’t like Sweden anymore. Well, to be more serious, opening for legends like Front 242 of course was a blast, we had fun and even though I’ve played alongside quite many famous bands it’s always fun to meet great artists, artists that one listened to when young and now seeing them in the audience
What is it about Latex that intrigues you?
What’s there not to like? Well... ok maybe that the material is very heat sensitive so if it’s cold out it… really gets cold! But what can I say, the shine, the tightness and the fact that it’s glued and not sewn together. It’s a material that makes me feel naked and beautiful. The way it sticks to your body….
Oh my… I need a moment!
You both perform on stage in Latex and model it, how do the two different mediums compare?
Being on stage in latex makes me feel so gorgeous but damn it gets hot and wet at times! ;) I enjoy the material and feeling, same goes regardless if I’m on stage singing or on the runway. I guess that it’s all about performance.
Read any good books lately?
Oh my, if I had time to read books… lately I’ve only been reading things for the magazine I’m editor for.
What's your favorite movie?
There are many movies I like so it’s hard to pick one. But I think I always will be weak for The Nightmare Before Christmas… it has a special meaning for me. Tim Burton is a great director… who wouldn’t want to work with him!
