Named after an Elvis Presley song, and formed in the mid 80s in Glasgow, His Latest Flame were thought by many as the nearest Scotland ever got to producing an all-girl pop band akin to The Bangles, albeit many of their songs had a political kick to them. The early singles were on Go! Discs but the latter material, including their only LP, was issued via London Records.
The initial band members were Jacqueline Bradley (drums), Irene Brown (guitars), Laura Mazzolini (bass), Moira Rankin (vocals) and Tricia Reid (guitar and vocals) who all played on this rather fine but very 80s sounding debut single.

Tricia Reid was by far and away the principal songwriter in the band. There would be a handful of 45s and one LP, In The Neighbourhood, before they called it a day in 1990.
