On this day in 1959: Kirsty MacColl was born in Croydon, England.
Today’s soundtrack: “They Don’t Know” and “There’s a Guy Down the Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis” singles, her solo albums, her backing turns on Smiths and Billy Bragg sides, and of course, the Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York.”
Today’s screening: FRENCH AND SAUNDERS
Today’s book club: SUN ON THE WATER: THE BRILLIANT LIFE AND TRAGIC DEATH OF MY DAUGHTER KIRSTY MACCOLL by Jean MacColl.
Today’s quote: “Kirsty is a voice gradually added to a body. She has great songs and a crackin’ bust. She is a supreme original but not - as far as I know - one of the original Supremes. Everything shows in the voice. The best of the last of. Furthermore, a full set of teeth. What more? NOT cursed.” - Morrissey
