Lloyd Miller, Small Businessman

A few months back, I asked "Is kids music recession-proof?" (The answer: no, not entirely.)

Well, someone else has asked that question, and they have a video camera and an editor, too. More importantly, the folks at Film@11.tv asked Lloyd Miller from the Deedle Deedle Dees to talk about his business. It's odd -- I tend not to think about musicians as businessmen and women, even though we just talked about it at Kindiefest. But they are, of course, and Miller has a good grasp on what's stayed steady (the big gigs) and what hasn't (the birthday parties).

And, near the very end, he also provides an origin story for the band's name. Still can't tell if he's joking.
