Because all kisses surprise.
Because Dolly Mixture - Rachel Bor, Hester Smith, Debsey Wykes - were the best British girl group ever.
Because, in the words of Jon Dale, "Warm, funny, generous, these three souls inspire devotion ... devotion borne of mutual understandings, of the thrill of the moment, and the 'wild kindness' of great pop."
To celebrate the 6 December release of two Dolly Mixture LPs on vinyl, Demonstration Tapes and Other Music, the Colloquium for Unpopular Culture is staging a rare screening of Take Three Girls, Paul Kelly's glorious film about the band.
PAUL KELLY is a musician (East Village/ Birdie), a graphic designer, and a filmmaker. His films include Finisterre (with Kieran Evans), What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day? (2005), This Is Tomorrow (2007), Lawrence of Belgravia (2011), and How We Used To Live (2013). In 2013, the Colloquium published Nothing's Too Good For The Common People: The Films of Paul Kelly containing essays by the likes of Dan Fox, Stephin Merritt, Jude Rogers and Peter Terzian.
