Friday Night Videos-Early Edition :: Kirsty MacColl

Kirsty MacColl makes it on this blog quite a bit. Here's Kirsty doing a live cover of the Kinks' "Days" from 1989, which was on the album 'Kite'::


Here's the music video::


"Innocence" was also on 'Kite', with Kirsty's characteristically sharp lyrics {click on image twice to play}::



I remember when "Walking Down Madison" came out in 1991 and I listened to it on a roadtrip to the Pacific Northwest. The track was on 'Electric Landlady', which was some wordplay on Hendrix's 'Electric Ladyland'::


and another Top of the Pops performance::


Going back a ways, this is "A New England" from way back in 1984. It was written by Billy Bragg::


Here's Kate Nash {this week's newmusicmonday, #40} and Billy Bragg doing a "Foundations"/"A New England" medley::
