A new book, Giger: Debbie Harry Species – Creating the Visual Concept for KooKoo , will document the early Eighties collaboration between the Blondie frontwoman and artist H. It seemed that interpretation came easier in Britain, the intended amalgam of black and white influences receiving a tepid response in Debbie’s homeland. Nile Rodgers, raised in New York’s Greenwich Village, was once a member of New World Rising, one of the first bands to play Max’s Kansas City, the New York club that had kick-started The Stilletos, a band that had included Chris Stein and Debbie Harry.Documenting New York from the seventies to today, he’s lived through the streets and the streets live on through him: from the city’s early punk scene to the landmarks long lost, Stein has captured cultural moments like none other.

Undoubtedly, the 1981 image would go on to play its hand in influencing Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, its race of antagonistic Cenobites, and particularly their leader, Pinhead. Giger had been the set designer on the film, creating a series of erotic and symbolic images that were at once both terrifying and strangely beautiful. It’s all there on film: Warhol, Debbie Harry, the cast, the city – and its his documentary of the Big Apple throughout the 70s and 80s that remains just as looming a character in his photographic archive. With photographs and words by Chris Stein, Harry’s long-term collaborator, artefacts and sketches from the Giger archive, and an introduction by Debbie Harry, this is an essential behind-the-scenes insight into the processes of an incredible creative partnership. The album will be reissued in late September, and the book will come out via Titan Books on November 11.After attending college, she worked various jobs—as a dancer, a Playboy Bunny and a secretary (including at the BBC in New York)—before her breakthrough in the music industry.

And he shares previously unpublished images of such iconic figures of the era as Debbie Harry, his musical partner in Blondie; Andy Warhol; Iggy Pop; David Bowie; and the Ramones.

We all admired each other’s work for a long time,” Debbie confirmed, setting the seal on the get-together.It’s a unique chronicle of a unique event and a glimpse into the creativity of two icons of the 1970s and 1980s. By 1964 he was producing his first artworks, mostly ink drawings and oil paintings, resulting in his first solo exhibition in 1966, followed by the publication and world-wide distribution of his first poster edition in 1969. Titan Books will use the information you provide on this form to be in touch with you and to provide updates and marketing. The fantastical music videos for two of the tracks on the album, “Backfired” and “Now I Know You Know,” co-star Giger himself as a sci-fi wizard/magician–something straight out of Logan’s Run, The Black Hole, or Planet of the Apes–piercing an Egyptian sarcophagus. And Chris Stein provides a new look at it from the perspective of two Americans living with Giger there for a few weeks in 1980.
