Molly's House: Bring your tight botties every Tuesday

My Eternal Fiancee Molly Parkin has great news - after a short interregnum she is to return to hosting a weekly gig at the Green Carnation gay club at London's 5 Greek Street.

Her Tuesday nighters, starting June 2, are called Aubrey Presents ... Molly's House. Free entry from 9pm. She has instructed me to say (in her customary capitals): "BRING YOUR TIGHT BOTTIES, BIG BOSOMS, SWEET BREATH, SMOOTH SHAVES, SCENTED ARMPITS, SEXUAL APPETITES. IF YOU HAVEN'T GOT THOSE, JUST COME AS YOU ARE. EVERYONE ELSE WELCOME! "

Aubrey is Aubrey Dobson, lately of Salon at the Shadow Lounge club around the corner. He is rated one of London's top movers and shakers by Time Out. "Dobson specialises in dressier events where people tend to keep their shirts on," the magazine reports. Aubrey reveals: "It was never my intention to take this career path. I really did fall into clubs, and I’m still doing so – with the bruises to prove it."

A "molly" was originally a prostitute but "in London in the early eighteenth century groups of men, noted for their effeminacy and sexual interest in each other, began to call themselves mollies and gather in semi-private venues called molly houses." (I cut and paste that in as I can't be bothered to rearrange the words). So Molly's House is a frightfully clever pun doncha think? In addition, Molly won't be playing the Beatles or Petula fucking Clark. Housy housy housy!

In honour of Boy George's recent release, I hope Moll plays this:

It's a difficult dilemma when One tries to write disguised press releases for one's friends however eccentric or talented they may be. Hope Molly is giving you a big present for being inadvertently responsible for you losing your credibility with this post.

Credibility, dearie? Paid-for media may have to worry about credibility but a free-at-the-point of access blog has no such concerns. Madame Arcati writes about what she likes, and if pushing the wonderful Molly's House takes MA's fancy, then it shall be made so.

Two years ago certain PAYE hacks thought they could control MA. I soon taught them a lesson in proper blogging: I write about what interests me. This blog draws more comments than a great many newspaper blogs with all their millions of readers. Hacks love to lift free info without the risks. Hacks love to control by expectation. I've been around too long for all that bull.

I think I know where you're coming from, ducks

I think 'mollies' should make a comeback

For immediate press release.
Hurray MA! She doesn't allow haters to mould her and dictate what to fancy or recommend.
Hurray Molly! She allows lovers to persuade her to look into new things (is it your influence, delving into new[er] music trends?). Now let's party.

I love it when Arcati gets on her high horse. You won't get a column being rude about "PAYE hacks".
