And, who could resist a drag artist with a country song called "No Dick's As Hard As My Life"? Not me, certainly, so I've tracked down every release by Tina C I could find. Tina C is one of the creations of Christopher Green (another is Ida Barr), and she's been very visible in the UK and Australia in recent years. And Green has many other acting projects. Visit his site, and Tina C's, and click for more.

All I know about Jullien Tome is what's found on his EP from 1976. It was produced in Melbourne, Australia, but he is Belgian, and his accent can be heard on the lounge-y rendition of "Strangers In The Night." The other three songs are sung in German. According to the bio sheet enclosed he was married to Oz TV personality Natalie Raine. The EP is of an oversized 8"x8" gatefold style. Click for more.
"An Evening To Remember" (TMS 252, EP, AU, 1976)
Tourette stormed on to the San Franscisco music scene in the early 90s,
winning the Entertainer of the Year at the Cable Car Awards in 1993. From
her first CD, "In Hi-Fi" she embodied the song "French
Bitch" as a hit video, and her music has been used in a number of
films. Visit her myspace

love the caption on Trinity's first album..."the next Lady to bust
out of the jazz world may not...be a Woman." And, gender aside, this
lady can swing! That's coincindentally the title of her second CD, and
something you can't help saying when you hear it. And at TellTrinity.com
you'd find she's also an advice columnist, an ordained minister, etc,
etc. Click for more.

1969 David Raven and James Court formed what was very unusual, a duo drag
act, and they gave it the delightful name, The Trollettes. One album survives,
"The Trollettes, Live at The Cricketers," from 1983. They have
both been active over the years and occasionally reunite for charity events,
like the 1998 benefit CD, "Five Drag Divas & a Duo." Raven
and Court are pictured at left, from the 1998 album notes. Click

|Patsy Vidalia (or Patsy Valdelar)|
Patsy Vidalia was the "Toast of New Orleans," emceeing at the famous Dew Drop Inn for 20 years. I've seen her last name also given as Valdalia, Valadear and Valdelar. That last variation was used on a Mercury compilation (listed below) featuring her only two recorded tracks, done in 1953, "Keep Your Hands on Your Heart" and "Rock Me." Click for more.

|Way Out Girls|
|The Way Out Girls were, well, I think put together as a parody of the Spice Girls, with names like Butch, Tarty, Leary, Snooty and Spice Rack, and a song written by Gary Glitter. Their CD single "I'm the Leader of the Gang" came out on Academy Street Records (UK, 1998) and actually was pretty good, with to me sort of a Bay City Rollers feel to it. I think they disappeared as quick as they were formed. Click for more.|
