Kristian Hoffman has had a long and quite fabulous, almost Zelig-like career, beginning in the early 70’s, where as a high school student in Santa Barbara, California, he hooked up with a young Lance Loud, often appearing as Loud’s best pal on the first ever reality TV show - An American Family.
His newest is called "Fop" (I love it) - this is the first I've ever read that spans his entire career here at Boogie Woogie Flu. Fittingly written by James (The Hound) Marshall, you can download some choice picks from Fop, as well as Kristian's previous bands, The Mumps and James Chance and The Contortions.
PS. Betcha didn't know this:
Hoffman is also a talented graphic artist who designed the famed New York Dolls logo (their name written in lipstick under a bend over nubile, goth girl) that appeared on the inner sleeve of their debut LP and millions of t-shirts ever since
