Deni & Christine Go Lez!
I got a huge kick from seeing my homegirl Deni Hines and the lovely Christine Anu on the cover of this week's Lesbians On The Loose. No, they haven't come out in a last ditch attempt to revitalise their careers (although I wouldn't put it past either of them) but they do comment on gay issues and Deni talks about being the daughter of a gay icon. The main purpose of the article, however, is to promote their recent charity single - a soulful cover of The Doobie Brothers' "Takin' It To The Streets". The track was released a couple of weeks ago and failed to make any chart impact whatsover thus maintaining Deni's impeccable record of miserable flops. I swear this country has no fucking taste! Admittedly, "Takin' It To The Streets" isn't the finest thing Deni or Christine has ever recorded but it's well performed and the divas even name check each other! More to the point - it's for a good cause. Help the homeless by buying a physical copy from Chaos or downloading the track from iTunes. You can check out the amazingly craptastic video below. Deni is on fire with her fabulous scene stealing antics but Christine could have gone to a bit more effort and at least brushed her hair! Their second national tour kicks off in December - I can't wait.
