It’s BRIT Awards night in the UK which got us thinking back to the band’s first ever performance on the broadcast (in 2005) created in collaboration with the Jim Henson Creature Shop. 👹👹👹 The band opened the show and also took home 3 awards that night: Best International Album 🏆 Best International Group 🏆 International Breakthrough 🏆 ‘Twas a night to remember. Good luck to all the nominees and performers tonight!
RIP Karl Lagerfeld 🖤 This shoot (in 2006/7?) was one of the more memorable in Scissor Herstory. Karl was the photographer on the day and was equal parts funny, shady (let’s just say he wasn’t thrilled with Del’s Galliano jacket) and generous (he gave Babydaddy a ring right off his own finger.) Sending love to his friends, family and all who loved him. X
Let’s welcome in February with some of the earliest known images of your Scissters, shall we? We believe these photos were taken at Larry Tee’s legendary Electroclash night Berliniamsburg at club Luxx around 2002 A.D. If anyone has any additional info, leave it in the comments. And if you’ve got an even older photo of the band we sure as hell would love to see it. #fbf
#TBT to this Magical Melbourne moment in 2010 when we surprised the hell out of y’all with our old pal Kylie Minogue who stormed out to join us for a couple of tunes.

Nothing says Christmas quite like covering ‘Super Trooper’ on German television accompanied by two muscle marys with a synchronized pectoral routine and members of the public dressed in Aldi bags. Did we mention Rod Stewart was there? God bless Wetten Das. Originally aired live on the 4th November 2006
