Oxford 1988 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Oxford Polythechnic, Oxford, UK; October 21, 1988. Very good FM broadcast.
Here is something short, sweet and sultry. Wendy James of Transvision Vamp certainly predates all the new female singers who use sexy images to sell their music. Here they are, promoting their then debut album, Pop Art.
1986 saw the formation of British pop-punk band, Transvision Vamp. Wendy James, then 20, was the lead singer and focal point of the group, and attracted media attention with her sexually charged and rebellious image. The Vamps disbanded in 1991 and, two years later, James released her debut solo album, Now Ain’t the Time for Your Tears. The album saw James maintain the pop/rock sound she had become famous for; with the tracks written in its entirety by Elvis Costello, and several tracks co-written by his then wife Cait O’Riordan. – wikipedia
