Whatever happened to Cicero?

Aaaah! He was a Pet Shop Boys protege wasn't he? Very similar production to their stuff, quite good in a dated housey way. The rapping is hilarious. Somehow I don't think he's playing that keyboard though. And dig the bagpipes at the end!

Do you think the Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe had him? I can just see them bending him over the keyboard, fit young thing that he is ...

And can I also say I love the "Whatever Happened to ... " concept, Mr Minge!! Great idea!! Wish I'd thought of it first. So what next? Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

Nah, too predictable.

Old Cheeser! You are vile! And that's fabulous... I always thought David Cicero was straight. But a friend of mine did have something of a relationship with him and suggests Chris Lowe bones him on several occasions.

Oh, I don't know... Whatever did happen to Baby Jane? Prison?

Last I heard there was a 12" version of "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye" he released. But that was years ago.

I bought a few of Cicero's post Spaghetti releases. They weren't up to much, sadly.

Aha Cicero! I remember him being more attractive than that. The hair! The dancing! The way he said 'gurrrrrrrl' like the man behind the counter in RS McColl! nearly twenty years on, that song sounds dreadful. I quite like the lyrics, though.

And the bagpipes.

Forgive my crudeness.

I think Mr Cicero was straight actually, just wishful thinking on my part. But what's this about him and Chris Lowe?? Tell me more!! I'm dying to hear ...

He was fun though, shame he's vanished into obscurity. Probably like Dina Carroll, he's back working on the supermarket tills.

As for Baby Jane, she was last seen losing the plot on a Californian beach, wasn't she? Mind you who wouldn't with Joan Crawford for a sister??

Cicero was just to damn handsome to live.... if you are wondering where he is he is kept shackled in a cage in my roof space naked.... I feed him bits of raw mear and poke him with a stick occasionaly.... straight? whats your definition of a straight man?? The biggest difference I have ever found between a straight and gay man is about 8 cans of Stella and that nght in Blackpool when the illuminations were switched on I must have bought David Cicero pint number 9... lets leave it at that..

Ha ha ha!! That's a good diagnosis of the difference between straight and gay men, David - if only it were true for all of 'em!!
