39 Lyon Street - Kites
39 Lyon Street is Christine Beveridge from Orbidoig on vocals with the Associates, released in 1981 during Mackenzie and Rankine's Situation 2 period, the b-side found it's way onto Fourth Drawer Down but the cover of Simon Dupree and the Big Sound's classic didn't resurface until the last singles collection I think. The Associates could basically do no wrong during the Mackenzie/Rankine era, they were just churning out single after single in 1981 and this came out slap bang in the middle of this period. According to a Smash Hits interview of the time, 18 Carat Love Affair was supposed to have been a further 39 Lyon Street release but Kites turned out to be the only thing released under this name in the end.
