Flunk to flunky, Dirt to Dirty

The Worst of Perth was accused of being too booziecentric (Boozocentric?) yesterday. No seriously. In my defence, I have featured dongers wherever I can find them, but they are , perhaps for the best, not as prominent in public art. I thought I’d post this one of “flunky” vases, to step away from the boozie contoversy, but looking again…

And I’ve been wanting to post this one for a while. Aunty Dirty. Like be dirty.

Will shower for money.

    Is that a “Beverley Hills 90210 Survey Game” I spy behind that stylin’ fwunky vase?

    I call dibs, and demand to know where I can purchase that – for a Christmas gift.


  2. Yes it is. Across the road from the knock shop at 835 Beaufort street. Just down the road from the bad shirt shop.

    Oh, and I seem to have missed censoring one of the phone numbers opn aunty dirty. Don’t ring it while I correct that.


  3. David Cohen says:

    Yah. We can’t call Aunty Dirty, but you want us to call Young Models? The former sounds much more fun.


  4. David Cohen says:

    And I have to ask: what does K/M/F mean? something/male/female?

    I’ve thought and thought for like 2 minutes but no joy…


  5. forkboy says:

    Cohen @ 3 – just called them but apparently they are fully boooked for the next couple of weeks doing a pub tour of the southern suburbs…….I wouldnt bother though….the lead singer looks nothing like James Freud…..unless she hasn’t bothered to wax her Bazlilian.


  6. David Cohen says:

    cheers Forkboy. they were engaged, so I assume that was you on the line.

    also: above Aunty there’s v/u/m. what the??


  7. vicdemised says:

    Those aren’t vases, LA, they’re inserts from an old Madonna bra. Ergo, more boozies.

    David @ 4, K/M/F = “kissing, male + female”
    Ditto @ 6, v/u/m = “visit you/me”

    (I have a PhD in the semantics of Teh West Personal column)


  8. Phone number censored. I thought the K might be kissing.


  9. BCF says:

    Heard original & best Model lead Mr Sean Kellys’ the only one left! Freud was a bit of a Johnny cum lately model pretender, but he’d probably fancy a dirty brazilian!

    Theres a great story about James Freud sharing a caravan in the back yard of Gary Numans (are Friends Electric/Cars) mums place in the UK years ago (80’s)! All that mascara in a confined space must’ve been a bit clostrophobic!!


  10. Snuff says:

    Too booziecentric, TLA ? Thinking, thinking … nope, no luck.

    And Aunty might like to be dirty, but hey, she’s no SBS.


  11. The L & U of flunky are starting to look like boozies too.


  12. Bento says:

    @ 11 – The dot above the ‘i’ has certain nipple-like qualities, too.


  13. BCF says:

    Is the n in Funky actually a todger profile?!!


  14. Snuff says:

    Thanks for the excuse to post this old favourite, forkboy and BCF.

    The “info” from ozseppo, the poster of this 2008 Reunion clip, is fairly instructive, BCF.

    “I come over from the States to see The Models, the Granny, and me Mum. Sadly, this was not the Models I wanted to see. Don’t get me wrong, their later stuff is/was commercially brilliant. did I have the right to expect they’d come out doing, “John From Earth”, slip into , “Kissing Around Corners”, a little , “Atlantic Romantic”, “Body Shop”, etc.? Where was Ferrie, Ash, and Crash? Duffield? Hell, I still got a woodie seeing Sean stride out. Freudie threw me a bone and did, “I Wanna be your Baby”. If you were there, just like the late 70’s and early 80’d, I was with the obnoxious heckling drunks in the right corner. No apologies, we are who we are. Hope to see you at the La Femme Reunion, backed by the Jetsonnes!”

    Can’t say I concur with his view on “their later stuff”, or his response to “seeing Sean stride out”, but each to their own.


  15. Snuff says:

    The “00” in $5.00, the “w” in twin. Oh yeah, TLA.


  16. forkboy says:

    Snuff @ 14 – the last time I saw the Models was at the Bunbury Recreation Centre in 1987………………they where in full swing Freudie fell of the stage after two numbers and was carted of in an ambulance to the now demolished Bunbury Regional Hospital…..the subsequent riot by drunken angry Southern teenagers determined to get their money back bordered on apocalyptic…………………oh how times have changed…………..The Models?…….who?


  17. Snuff says:

    Indeed, I guess they have, forkboy. Now I’m wondering if the Bunbury Recreation Centre, (surely once was enough, although I did enjoy skateboarding on that hill near the lighthouse), was the same venue where an almighty brawl ensued in the early 80s when the locals discovered, much to their aural disgust, that the “Scottish Terrier Appreciation Society” meeting was actually a clandestine “Quick and the Dead” gig.

    Just on venues, did anyone else ever visit the Toucan ?
    What a great dive it was, and in genteel Adelaide, of all places !


  18. The BCF says:

    Hey thanks for the flashback Snuff, Kelly had that effect for sure – majestic, aloof,godlike! Opening with “cut lunch” – I never thought I’d see that again! Anything from alphabravo would’ve been expecting a bit much!

    Looks a bit like he’s gone all Tom Verlaine in the beret!


  19. Snuff says:

    You’re most welcome, BCF. All receding, more likely !

    I really liked their early stuff, and Sean’s voice, but that was about it, especially after an acrimonious, (particularly with Freud), interview I did with them on 6UVS way back when. I suspect I was just as much, if not more to blame, than them, and I can’t even remember why it went so badly. Everyone was tired and emotional, I guess.
