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:
