Daphne and Celeste were amazing

How brilliant were late 90s pop duo Daphne and Celeste? This brilliant…

Despite being two squeaky voiced New York 'teenagers' they had big balls. Seeing them play the Reading Festival was like watching two bunnies being sent in front of a firing squad. Only the firing squad didn't have bullets, they had bottles full of wee. I wanted to bum rush the show of the two spunky girls on stage and stand shoulder to shoulder with them, facing the barrage from twenty thousand Rage Against The Machine-loving dullards with no sense of humour or fun.

Karen DiConcetto (Daphne) is now a ‘serious’ actress and has appeared in a play called Tourrettaville, written by a boy with Tourette's syndrome as well as The House is Burning, a Wim Wenders-produced film. Celeste Cruz has also appeared in a film, Brooklyn Bound.

Here is an ace, old fashioned fan website that looks like it was built in, like, 1997.
