I have just written an article for Laser Magazine about the Cockettes, which I believe will be out in September. I’ll post that one later.
Sylvester, who was part of the drag troupe, is finally getting his own documentary. The 10 minute preview features interviews with Martha Wash (who started as a backup singer for him in the Two Tons o’ Fun), Patti Labelle and out-of-drag RuPaul. But a gay doc would not be complete without recollections by your favourite drag daddy, John Waters, right?
Oh, she looks just like a gay. Sorry, I had to let it out.
Of course, Jochen Diestelmeyer is just in gay drag, but I’m so excited to hear new songs after his band Blumfeld faded away in 2007.
JD’s new album “Heavy” will be out September 25, the single “Lass uns Liebe sein” (Let us be Love) hits stores September 4 and www.distelmeyer.de is online now should be onläne pretty soon. With titles like that, it has to be good. (via Spex)
In the meantime, watch Blumfeld’s classic “Tausend Tränen Tief” (Thousand Tears Deep) featuring Helmut Berger below.
