THE GUINNESS FLEADH

Why are they famous? Lynne Franks

MAIN CLAIM: Darling-darling, sweetie-sweetie, Bolly darling, Harvey Nicks darling and all those tired old catch phrases only Australians and other culturally-backward colonials now dare use. Once famous for being a spectacularly successful PR "guru", in the Eighties-speak that she handles so well, Franks is now better known as the supposed inspiration for Jennifer Saunders' character Edina in Absolutely Fabulous. The latest news is that she is about to leave our shores for Los Angeles.

After Dark: Beating the rap

Rap and hip-hop have an undeservedly bad reputation in this country, as police and punters shy away from their `gangsta' associations. But now a London promoter aims to up their image

Property: `More than anything I miss being at the centre of things. There's not even a Gap in Winchester'

Phew - Scott a scorcher; ROCK

I keep thinking about Alan Mullery. It's one of those facts that sticks with you, that he lost 11 pounds perspiring for England in the murderous Mexican heat during the 1970 World Cup quarter-final. And at the Garage in London, where Mike Scott is on the fourth of five dates, it feels like Mullery's got nothing on me.

Review: Essential Music Festival Finsbury Park, London

I had enjoyed the Essential shindig earlier in the year in Stamner Park at Brighton - very polite, South coast, student-middle-class. But there's something about London Town, an event in a park, in the midst of the concrete jungle, without ageing Mick- / Dylan-stylee rockers as the crowd-puller, that makes you instinctively know that "this is going to be a laugh" and far more cosmo with it, an event for young people, run by young people, aimed at young people.

Middle class boy to rent...

Rupert Everett says he `sort of fell into' male prostitution. Hester Lacey talks to two other nice, well-educated, young men who did exactly the same thing

live review: Kiss Finsbury Park, London

A deep voice boomed out: "You wanted the best. Now you got the best." As the black drape fell off the stage, there, in among the dry ice and underneath a bank of multicoloured lights, were three axemen in their late forties, in full super-hero garb, all going for it with "Do You Love Me?".

Still alive and licking

After 25 years, hard-rock dinosaurs Kiss continue to behave as if all the world were their stage. Perhaps it is.
