Soho Obituaries

Thanks to a variety of factors (New Puritanism, Westminster City Council, property prices) Soho has gradually succumbed to the blanding, levelling out and heritaging forces sweeping the land. A couple of the younger more recent local characters have died in the last few days Michael Wojas of the late Colony Room fame and Sebastian Horsley (I hear from a Sohoite that the latter's death was a result of the 'wake' for the former). There is a play Dandy in the Underworld based on Horsley's life running in the West End at the moment - the legend begins.
