Days of Tanya Donnelly

Heartwarming to see that Tanya Donnelly’s new covers album refers to ‘Days’ as a Kirsty MacColl cover.  We love Tanya so here is the link.


Kirsty on Top of the Pops for the first time

May 1980 found Kirsty appearing in the background behind the esteemed Jona Lewie.  Whether or not she appeared on the recording  or not has been the subject of much debate.  Kirsty told freeworld that she did, Jona says she didn’t (and he should know).  Perhaps she went in for the sessions but wasn’t recorded, much like her sadly fruitless session with Van Morrison.  Great track regardless!
