“Saturday night I was down town Working for the F.B.I Sitting in a nest of bad men Whiskey bottles piling high…” – from “Long Cool Woman” by The Hollies.

Temperatures rise… Coppers capsize… Her hand on your thigh…Unbutton your fly There she lies Call it divine appointment or the tender allure of a femme fatale in distress.  Call it the promise of a happy ending. No matter, classic vintage brings to life the portrait of a dame about to meet her savior.  Dirty cess, decoy chess, moves by Elliot Ness, dead men confess. Bootleg bosses, babes and buzz cuts – this work blends all the tell-tale signs of a fatal night Hollies-style.

“Just one look I was a bad mess

‘Cause that long cool woman had it all.”
