For Deee-lites second show , I hired Captain Whizzo ( Joshua Light show -hendrix , janis Joplen ,Sly Stone,etc…..) t project his superb oil and water liquid multimedia show . I wasn’t just a fan of Whizzo , he was the perfect way to cover up how nervous I was singing in public , because I was in the dark and let his show do the work . Fortunatly I got over stage fright after a couple of gigs with Bootsy’s rubber band backing me up . Whizzo had a hippie habit of showing up at our williamsburg apt ( this was in 1987) about 3 days before the gig saying ” can i crash here until the gig? ” . his fingers were always purple from the Inks. he was a huge man who could carry all his own gear ( huge overhead projectors that looked like a big table and smaller 16” projectors and slide shows . gear from the 50’s and he’d carry them up 6 flights to our flat . he was too paranoid to have an assistant ( all that acid i suppose) but the warmest person with a huge heart. This performance is before towa was in the group and was performed at the legendary pyramid club . Both songs “I won’t give up” and “electric shock” ( subconsciously written about the internet) were on the second album INFINITY WITHIN. We worked with Capt. Whizzo for approx 4 years. We couldn’t take him on the road when we blew up because his equipment was not transportable . a shame. Capt. Whizzo -still in my heart- R.I.P. - Lady Miss Kier
