Madame Sex, back in Soho… ( London ) as it should be.


Madame Sex, back in Soho, as it should be

Madame Sex is quite well known in Soho, as a matter of fact she has lived there many years and many years ago.
Madame Sex is the new release Art Cd from Anne Pigalle. Anne Pigalle, the last Chanteuse, is taking over the old Soho in London with a series of live performances. She was the first musical act to perfom at Madame Jojo’s way back and also did revamp the Café de Paris when the Café was still a thé de dance venue. Anne came up with a proposal that the manager could not refuse and he let her have the place. The rest is history : Les nuits du Mercredi at the Café de Paris ( with added team partners Albert and Nick Fry ) are legendary for a certain generation as the most fun night ever in London. Anne Pigalle comes back to her roots: the first evening will be on October the 3rd at Jazz After Dark ( venue known for hosting Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse ), 9 Greek Street Soho W1 – from 9pm to 1.30am. The madame Sex Art Cd, is a home made Cds ( or perhaps made in a hotel somewhere ) combining some new songs and a selection of erotic poetry. Each object Cd is handpainted individually as a protest against the generic world of music and art where everything is mediocre, fake and unsexy, well according to Madame Sex, and she knows.
