- it's not really a company, it's just a name.

May-to-Be

Purity

  of Wolverhampton have unfolded the towel and have removed it from the drawer ready for mid May. From the 18th.

Torture Garden - All Change

Both Italy and New York have been cancelled - and have been replaced with Pearl Necklaces: May 21/22nd.

Latest Gossip! - Back Already!



Re-Opened Sooner Than Previously Announced!

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday - sounds like a plan.

Putting the hope in Hope Street?


Industrial Dance

Maar Floops manfully(?) keeping pace with what must be the most pumpin' tune in the Industry:



One of several appearances by Cyanide Vice, in possibly her best outfit yet:



Here she is again with Cirwana Black. Last week was busy:



(Cirwana has a cheeky moment just before the 5 minute mark!)

And another Cirwana collabaration, this time with . . . Cyanide Vice?:



And another Cyanide Vice collabaration, this one with Wendy Ailan:



And a solo from Wendy, busy week all round:



(There's also a two hour live stream of Wendy and Cyanide. Not two hours of actual live dance, I'm guessing. Hope your Spanish is better than mine!

Or, warm off the presses last week, Wendy has another live stream - over an hour and a half on Music and Make-up.)

Roh Maribel showcasing her 'Liquorice Allsort' womble-boots!:




Petition: Don't Criminalise Paying for Sex



As reported by the ISMS. But you'll have to scroll down to mid-January to find this bit.

Essentially it's touted as a legal move to protect women - by making them into criminals. A system already found not to work elsewhere around the world. How predictable was that?


Herrin Ariadne



. . . of No Way Out has podcasts available. (N.B. may be in German.) She also does custom podcasts - presumably English is an option. Or you could have used lockdown as an opportunity to learn German.


Miss Kim



 is still running daily Mistress Workshops on-line, and has some specials coming up.

Boris Johnson



 . . . is deploying the arse-crack Covid test.


Advertorial

Google are pulling out the stops to 'show small UK businesses some love'. Well, stopping short of paying tax, of course. Anything that might actually support local buisnesses. Local tax, for local people! Feel free to pass this on to Google. And Amazon, come to that.

I saw (heard?) another song infected by the toxic bite of advertising: Sweet Child of Mine being broadcast in a watery-warbling form. Can't remember what for - way to go, advertisers. And that bloody Lloyds Bank commercial is back. At least the Seat version Walk on the Wild Side is passable.

And what are they advertising with Enola Gay?

Between the adverts a new series of . . . Batwoman? Wow, did no-one at All4 watch the first one?

Elsewise M&S are having a pop at Lidl about . . . kids birthday cakes.



To be known as 'The Battle of The C's? And it's obvious who the C's are here.

Goings & Comings

Some musings on 2019 and 2020. That last one is on a bit of a short ration.


Toyah

'Toyah at Home' - broadcast on Saturday mornings at 11am. (The other week she said “I'm not gay - I'm married”. Priceless. Then she rhapsodised about her honey-hive!) And Sunday Lunchtimes, at lunchtime on Sunday.

Here's her performance of Ace of Maids?



Toyah briefly resumed touring early in 2020, before everything closed down.

Many dates, especially the Electric Ladies dates (which co-star Hazel O'Connor), are now re-scheduled from mid May this year. But you'll have to wait a month for her Up Close and Personal show. Here's a snippet of her Rubber Revalations.



Maybe you saw her getting a rough deal in Quatermass on Talking Pictures TV?
