This new expanded version with FIVE bonus tracks including her 7” with the legendary ‘Armitage Shanks’ is also available on coloured vinyl for the first time, peach in fact!
Kyra Rubella was best known as a member of Thee Headcoatees and was also in The A-Lines and The Shall-I-Say-Quois.ORIGINAL LP SLEEVENOTES –
Kyra (that’s pronounced ‘Keera’) is a Flemish girl who sings punk rock and Chansons with heart and abandon. She first came to our attention as one of Thee famed Headcoatees. The energy and power of her performance convinced us that she should make an album of her own.How about it, Kyra?
“YES! YES! YES!” she screamed, jumping up and down.
So, recorded live and in a style that would make lesser hearts tremble, here she is, (she always is).Tracking:
