The fellowhip of Pebelle part III: VUM as in Womb

Jennifer Pearl (ex-Lion Fever, Lost Kids) and Christopher Badger (founding member of Grand Elegance) are VUM. Partners in crime, and co-conspirators for this new throbbing noir heartbeat.

I first stumbled upon Jennifer's brilliant voice by listening to her former band Lion Fever and the depth of her singing touched me.
In the same year VUM formed and the mix of surf guitar, analog drum machine and vocals makes it difficult to turn off. I became an immediate fan of that new project and through lucky circumstances I had the chance to get to know this lovely lady personally and even see VUM perform live in LA.

An exchange happened and I was trusted to create costumes for VUM's first video shoot in the Joshua Tree desert. The video will be released soon and you can be sure that I will post it on here.

You can find the music on Myspace:
Here's a little taste:

Find more artists like VUM at Myspace Music

or buy her limited cassettes at Amoeba, LA or in Viennas Samstag Shop!
But be quick there aren't many left.

So here's some goodies of that vibrant talent and hopefully you like it too.


The fellowship of Pebelle part II: I kill a man with Monique Maion

Monique Maion - Straight from São Paulo, Brazil, she was considered “the new voice” by Rolling Stone Magazine, “Brazilian Female Tom Waits” by the blogs and “Free Soul” by the Swiss newspaper Der Bund. Monique shows her versatility with her variety of projects.

We hooked up via Myspace and she was an immeditate fan of my work. Later on she urprised me with these nice snapshots she did, wearing leggings by Pebelle.
I was even more positively surprised as I discovered a video on the net of her performing at the Mauerpark Karaoke in Berlin-her beeing so close and rocking an event that I would so wish to take place in Vienna. Also because I've been there myself and even filmed it.

You can find her on
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/monmaion
Twitter: http://twitter.com/moniquemaion

So here she is.


The fellowship of Pebelle part I: Get your hopes up with Actually Huizenga ( Hard Place)

My new series " The fellowship of Pebelle" is a résumé of whom I worked with in the last two years. With enthusiasm and beeing communicative a multifaceted assemblage of people came together that I worked with. I want to take the upcoming end of this year as a chance to present every one of those great faces. And talents.

Part I:

Get your hopes up - Actually Huizenga

I first noticed A.Huizenga as the lead singer of a wonderful combo called "Hard Place" when they rocked the Fluc in Vienna 2,5 years ago.
Within minutes I turned into a fan of this outgoing and beautiful lady and some time after the gig we got in contact.

So here she is wearing one of her Pebelle's leggings.

Actually Huizenga and Hard Place are located in Los Angeles, where they create music and work on film projects.
I love the aesthetics and patchwork style she's using in her films. The setting & costumes are diverse and some uptight people might find it too provoking, but that's what art does: it provokes and makes you ponder about what you see.

Here's a little example for Hard Place's music but if you want to dive deeper take a scroll through Actually's you tube account named huizenga: http://www.youtube.com/user/huizenga

She also work on a music project called "Wet Look", underneath you find a second video for that project.

This image was taken in a club during Fashionweek Vienna and I think it does show a lot.
