For this evenings batch it’s a trio of female fronted bands and tracks from 1988.
First up is the 60’s obsessed Voice Of The Beehive. From the debut album “Let It Bee” we get the characteristic duel vocals of sisters Tracey Bryn and Melissa Brooke Belland belting out an early hit. I never knew, before researching this, that the band contained both bassist and drummer from Madness, Mark Bedford and Daniel M Woodgate respectively. Joining them was two guitarists, Mike Jones and Martin Brett to complete the line-up.
So on chugs the bouncy “I Walk The Earth” with the riff of Temple Of Love by the Sisters on it (I kid you not!)
On the B-side we get the West Coast, upbeat strum of “This Weak.” Lastly we get a decent Lou Reed/ Velvet Underground cover of “Jesus…” (Ah, the 80’s twelve home of the obscure cover version) suitably psychedelically warped.
