NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #248 ~ 11-21-20]

Pictured: The New York Dolls.

Mind you, the name they switched to, New York Dolls, is itself rich in camp associations. Although the name was actually inspired by a toy hospital in Manhattan, ‘doll’ was by 1971 already a quaint term for ‘cute girl’ or ‘broad’ (as in the musical Guys and Dolls or the Swinging Sixties term ‘dolly birds’). But it also evoked Valley of the Dolls, Jacqueline Susann’s 1966 pulp best-seller about showbiz starlets in Hollywood, which then became a hugely successful movie melodrama. In the book and movie, ‘dolls’ is the nickname for pills: the uppers and downers to which one of the actresses becomes addicted. By 1970, the already absurd film had a parody sequel in the form of Russ Meyer’s glorious camp fantasia Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, in which an all-female rock band arrive in LA and become embroiled in druggy, polysexual decadence. So the name New York Dolls neatly compacted the city of their birth and source of their spirit with a campy, outmoded ideal of feminine beauty, plus a hint of chemical excess.
