Legendary downtown performers Kiki & Herb, whose manic evenings of song stylingcum gestalt therapy have attracted an enormous and rabid following, have gone from the bars of the village all the way to Carnegie Hall and now Broadway. Their shattering and ingenious interpretations of pop songs both old and new have been written about in countless articles, reviews and even a dissertation or two. Along the way, Justin Bond and Kenny Mellman (as they are often and otherwise referred to) recorded two full-length CDs – both of which are produced by Julian.
The first, the essential Christmas album Kiki & Herb: Do You Hear What We Hear, is a pristine and twisted account of many holiday favorites (and more than a few shocking surprises) and features special appearances by some of the duo’s favorite friends including Debbie Harry, Alex Gifford, Molly Ringwald, Lilly of the Valley, Isaac Mizrahi, the Eerie Institutional Gospel Choir.
The second, Kiki & Herb Will Die for You at Carnegie Hall, is a 2-CD record of their storied concert at the world’s most prestigious concert venue and is a much a testament to the passion of their fans as it is to their own monumental talent.
Information about both CDs can be found at the Kiki & Herb website.
