mp3: The Twinsets – Out Of Fashion (demo – recorded 1982)

Here’s the blurb.

Based around the vocal harmonies of sisters Gaye and Rachel Bell, Edinburgh’s The Twinsets gave a punky edge to cocktail bar swing-time covers.  Also recorded during one of their John Peel sessions, this demo version of Johnny Green and lyricist Edward Heyman’s jazz standard had been Bing Crosby’s first hit in 1931 before numerous versions being recorded by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne and Frank Sinatra. 

In August 2018, the Bell sisters reunited onstage for two songs as part of Since Yesterday, a concert at the Edinburgh International Festival to celebrate the lost female voices of Scottish pop.
