is the lead singer for Gang Gang Dance. She has a really cool voice that’s sometimes Yoko Ono and sometimes Kate Bush, but then it’s weird because when she talks she has the thickest Long Island accent ya evah hoyd. Gang Gang Dance’s album, God’s Money, is out now on Social Registry. They’re currently working on a new album and a collection of videos to be released in February 2006.

Lizzi tells us about some of her favorite stuff:
DARYL K PANTS
I bought these like ten years ago when I had a day job.
I lost the other one on tour and I’m really upset about it. I threw a fit. I loved them so much. They’re three sizes too big but I wore them every day.
WHITE HAND-DRAWN T-SHIRT
I stole this from our drummer, Tim. I don’t remember if he made it or if Harmony Korine did. It was always armpit-stained, but I’ve been wearing it for years anyway.
DUCK ROCK T-SHIRT
This was passed from Malcolm McLaren to Sinead O’Connor’s old manager to Brian Degraw to me.
What eye candy! I’ve been ultra-clumsy in heels lately, so I just display these in my apartment now. I did wear them in Portugal once and got an enormous response.
This is a prized gem a friend got me from Oslo, Norway. I have a thing for Countess Erzsebet Bathory—she bathed in the blood of many virgins. I was really into black metal at the time. It’s a little too big on me, but the graphics get me every time.
I make one-of-a-kind pieces. On the left is my newest one. I made it from a broken Italian death-metal ring. The one on the right was a present from Marika, Rita Ackermann’s little girl. She’s seven. It’s from Peru. I like to wear it with my bullet.
HIPPIE PEASANT SHIRT BY INNOCENCE
This was my mom’s shirt in the 70s. She wore it when she was pregnant with me in Greece.
