Okay, I may have looked a little like a pimp, but that’s how the cool dudes dressed in 1974. And that’s how I dressed for the book launch of Tell Them to Get Lost on Thursday night. I did get a few stares walking to Readings Bookshop in St Kilda, because St Kilda is also hooker central and I looked like a pimp (or a cliched 1970s pimp at least). The launch was fab and a good crowd of cool dudes and groovy chicks turned up to watch my very 1970s slide show followed by a key party. The only things missing were devilled sausages, Harvey Wallbangers and a few tabs of LSD. Here’s some photos from the night (I left out a few because I didn’t think think the orgy photos were appropriate for my younger audience)…
The nibblies (and my saggy 1974 bottom)
The pimp on his green velour throne and the slide show.
The crowd – well, my family members and a couple of strays.
The book signing (although my quill seems to be in my hat).
My fans love me so much!
These fans flew in that morning from Minnesota, USA for the launch
Happy book buyers (although Mark on the left was a bit confused and purchased the wrong book)
My pants are high aren’t they?
