sometimes you realise its a small world. a few years ago there was a sudden surge of girls with guitars. some declared themselves to be a bitch, whereas others were all torn up. some were even nuts. amongst this phase there was one girl who like ginger hair dye and butterflies. she released an album on julian copes echo label. the album came in a orange case and to this day is still easy to find in the archive. so imagine my surprise when i get an email from 'maple bee' advising of her new double cd and finding out that this is indeed the new guise for melanie garside. not only that but following her stint as solo artist she worked alongside the mediaeval baebes, and even played bass alongside her sister in queenadreena. damn. does she ever chill?
Thought some people might be amused by this - it's the back of the On Reality 12" (well, as much of the back of a record sleeve as you can get in a scanner anyway) which featured a little cartoon of the band. This is from around the same time as that YouTube video. Enjoy :)
