    BOBBY CONN - »Hollow Men«

    01. Hollow Men
    02. At The Bijou

    The undisputed master of the Glampop is back with two extraordinary songs.
    Hollow Men: 80s, Bobby and his friends smoked clove cigarettes, listened to Bauhaus and Gary Numan and read dark poetry, which they didn't really understand. Bobby was enthusiastic about T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men" - cool, completely gloomy, depressing and apocalyptic. Now Bobby is a bit older and according to his own statement: a gloomy teenager of his own - and still does not really understand T. S. Eliot. "But what stands is the desire to dance. It's the revolt. The claim to end the life with a bang, rather than with a whimpering. And so, Bobby and Monica began to sing vowels about vowels and created this diva version of "Hollow Men".
    At the Bijou: ... is Bobby's tribute to the first American gay porn movie theater - opened in Chicago in 1970. The Bijou, whose heyday was in the 70s and 80s, was one of the first places with "playrooms" for casual gay sex. The owner went to jail twice because of fornication, and so stands for another, a free America. Now it's easier to be openly gay, porn is part of everyday life and "theater" visits have been uninteresting. Grindr and Internetpornography did their best. And so it came as it had to come. The neighborhood eventually became too expensive to keep it as a theater, so it closed a few years ago and was sold.
