I'm gonna burst your bubble; the fun has just begun



Sad news has arrived of the death of Larry Steinbachek [he with the - ahem - large talent, on the left of the above photo], keyboardist of the fabulous Bronski Beat. He was only 56.

To round off a hectic working week, and to get us in a party mood (for what promises to be a rather wintry weekend), what better than the boppy combination of the Bronskis and our Patron Saint of Purr-fection, Miss Eartha Kitt?

You'd better give her those Cha-Cha Heels!


RIP, Larry.... and Thank Disco It's Friday [the Thirteenth - gulp]!

    1. You know what they say about men with big feet?

      Big shoes.

  2. Aagh, I loved the Bronskis - being a "Smalltown Boy" myself. I still have that cassette single of "Cha Cha Heels" with the fab B-side (on a cassette?) Eartha's "My Forgotten Men". Good to see wee Jimmy still around.

    1. We were myriad, those "Smalltown Boys", back in 1984 [the year I came out]...

      And, as for "My Discarded Men" - here 'tis, me dear!

  3. Yes, I realised my mistake after I logged out for the day. 2008 was quite a year too then.

    1. It is rather scary to think we lost Miss Kitt, Yma Sumac, Estelle Getty, Dody Goodman and Cyd Charisse that year alone... Jx
