Meet Olivier Chauzy – a very good friend of mine, who I have known for over 20 years now. We met on the dance floor of the New Fluo – my favourite (now defunct) nightclub in Toulouse, which pretty much sorted my musical education (amongst other things). The timewarp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show used to send us into hysterics – and I wanted to commemorate these heady nights.
But Olivier is many other things: a very talented professional make-up artist, a musician in his own right with uber cool band Spank, and before anything else he is a MAJOR music fan – you will have guessed, Bowie features high on his list of favourite artists.
And so he became my muse, or ‘ma Chauze’. I intend to keep on turning him into all his favourite acts. That includes the Bangles, so watch out for some serious big hair coming soon.
