Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Marilyn - Calling Your Name

While a regular at the London Blitz Club Robinson, now adopting the name "Marilyn", was introduced to Boy George through a mutual friend and fellow Blitz kid, Philip Sallon.

Boy George and Marilyn moved into a squat in Kentish Town, a suburb of London.

While Boy George went on to form Culture Club in 1981 and secured a recording contract with Virgin Records, Marilyn was still scouting for a recording contract and had relocated to Los Angeles for some time to work on an album for James Cleveland.

He teamed up with songwriter and pop entrepreneur Paul Caplin, with whom he co-wrote 'Calling Your Name'.

By this point, Culture Club had made a commercial impact with their debut album, and record companies were seriously looking for artists with a similar cross-dressing image.

Due to this Marilyn was signed to Phonogram Records and released his debut single, 'Calling Your Name', in October 1983. The single reached number 4 in the UK, number 4 in Australia, and number 1 in Japan. The lyrics to the song were reportedly aimed at Boy George, with whom Marilyn was now having a stormy off-and-on friendship.
