New England (Originally Performed By Kirsty Maccoll) (Full Vocal Version) · Paris Music
On this day in 1989 – it’s the Happy Mondays! It’s Kirsty!!
Here’s Kirsty performing ‘I Don’t Wanna Play House’ on the ‘Something Else’ TV show. Footage from Peter Checksfield, arranged by Ruby Pepper.
Welcome to an unusual runup to Christmas. We’ll keep an eye on that singles chart for you . . . currently at No. 59 in the midweek chart after entering at 63 at the weekend — which also registered the song’s 100th week in the Top 100.
. . . and chill . . .
Hearts of Oak Vichitters. Needs more vocal but pleasing all the same. You can sing along, make your own noise!
An occasional indulgence. Here’s Clare Grogan and Altered Images in 1983.
In fact here she is again 31 years later at the Borderline! Still got it.
Kirsty at the Fleadh in 2000.
Always great to revisit this from 2013.
Kirsty and Billy Bragg from the Hackney Empire in 1991.
