Book Description

Feb. 16 2006
At last, Lederhosen Lucil emerges from the pantry!

This German-accented singing sensation with blond braids, a taste for dried apricots, and an ever-growing wardrobe of lederhosen (German short-pant-overall things) has many secrets to share. Where did she come from? The origins of the character the Montreal Mirror called “one of Montreal’s most outrageous musical acts” (and one of the city’s best-dressed) are now exposed…

Since her stage debut in 1998, the now-legendary Lucil has inspired visual artists and writers to create beautiful photos, comics, pictures, and stories — all part of The Joy of Hosen. Take an eight-year visual odyssey through the evolution of Lucil’s costumes, wigs, poster art, song lyrics, set lists, comic art, and more. Experience the unfolding of this raw creation process in The Joy of Hosen, and witness some of the ideas it has sparked in drawings from a spectrum of other artists.

Designed by artist and master poster maker Todd “Breeree” Stewart, this book features photographer Jocelyn Michel’s juicy shots of Lucil sporting each of her unique hosen. The Joy of Hosen: Lederhosen Lucil Up Close und Pictorial is a delightful addition to any book collection. Full of tasty surprises for her fans, it is easy to see why Lucil is so very loved!

About the Author

Krista Muir grew up in small-town Canada, listening to everything from AC/DC to Chopin to The Cure. In school, her favourite subjects were always music and theatre, and she was always eager to jump onstage and soak up the lights.

Fast-forward to the future, when Krista moved to Toronto and got sucked into the hilarious world of “temping.” This introduction to the “real world” prompted her reactionary music and the development of her favourite character to date, “”Lederhosen Lucil.”

Little did she know that people from San Francisco to Wellington would get hooked on her alter ego and that she would go on to record Hosemusik, Tales From the Pantry, and Apricots, as well as filming her video/short film Semi-Sweet.

Krista Muir currently lives in Montreal and is in the process of creating a Lederhosen Lucil TV show, a clothing line, and a rock and roll Bed & Breakfast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun book June 17 2010
I'm a big fan of Lederhosen Lucil (too late to catch her early performances sadly and missed her 2010 show in Vancouver). This book is quite amusing and reveals a wacky sense of humor (though her music makes it obivous <3 the Cutlery song). Early show pamphlets, history bits and Hosen (my god the Lederhosen is amazing) are all contained within this small book(it sits quite comfortably besides my Folio society edition of Alice in wonderland/Through the looking glass Hardcover set. Highly recommended:)
