Mr. Jansen. First, thanks for your contribution to the pop-culture of the 80’s. You had a major impact on me back in 2009, when i finally discovered your work. I wanted to ask: where you derived your inspiration for your costume/wardrobe for the Oil On Canvas live video/ Sons of Pioneers tour?

Funny … The white shirt was (I believe) from designer Y’s and the ‘dogtooth’ trousers were made by Yoko (Masami Tsuchiya’s wife) who was also responsible for Richard, David & Masami’s outfits. During the first stages of the tour I’d grown weary of bright & shiny outfits and asked Yoko to make me something in all black, which she did, although unfortunately (and forever to my dismay) the costume wasn’t ready until we reached the end of the tour in Japan.
