For Piley – Sluts In Leotards

October 23, 2008

There was a small discussion on the last post about the merits of Legs and Co or Hot Gossip – well quite frankly I feel Hot Gossip win hands down! You can’t go wrong with a bit of strutting suggestively in a high-cut leotard. So because I know Piley really wants to see some Hot Gossip – here they are:

Believe it or not – Hot Gossip recorded an album in the early 80s titled Geisha Boys and Temple Girls produced by the former Human League and then current Heaven 17 member Martyn Ware. The album was an unmitigated commercial failure. The group was once spoofed on The Benny Hill Show as “Hot Gossamer”. A few real-life former Hot Gossip dancers went on to appear on the Benny Hill show in its last fading years as part of the Hill’s Angels dance troupe.

Oh the shame.

Which one was your favourite? Everyone always swooned over Peri Lister and Debbie Ash although my favourite was Carol Fletcher. You see – I know all the names!

    No no there’re all too bony. I imagine getting hurt in the passion play, should I be so lucky says you. However a little brown sugar might ease the pain, but then again if you had that why would you bother, as everyone knows it’s better than ……. O sorry there’s the door bell. Toodle-oo

    Momo Madster – yes – you would probably have a few bony elbow-induced bruises here and there I am sure and the rest! <br/><br/>Mr Mondo Bongo – Oh I love that Blondie one – it’s set on the subway train isn’t it? Fab! I think Custon Car mag was a favourite amongst boys of that age wasn’t it? That and Dad’s copy of Forum!

    I see they had the bubbles in homage to the Stones’ video of It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll But I Like It.<br/><br/>Or was it an homage to Ooh, you are awful, but I like you?

    I didn’t like them because of the lack of jazz hands. More of a Lionel Blair person, meself.

    Oh grief, I remember Kenny Everett and all that stuff!<br/><br/>I was watching a crime reconstruction show and all I could think of was "hey, the 80s". It was interesting to see how the survivors looked 20+ years later, but I still loved the 80s look.

    I used to try to get crimped, Hot Gossip style hair, with disastrous consequences.<br/><br/>The Young Generation! The Dougie Squires Dancers! New Edition! You can’t beat a good 1970’s variety show dance troupe.

    <a href=’http://www.dancedirect.com/uk/Category/Ballet/Leotards/’ rel=’nofollow’>leotards</a> are very comfortable in order to allow the gymnasts to perform their tricks. It is made up of a thin and flexible fabric that is only one piece. The torso is completely covered, but the legs may be exposed. For men, they usually cover the legs. They can also be made in many different colors with different patterns that make them visually appealing.
