Driving around Los Angeles the other day, Robert DeNiro's Waiting came on the radio (KCRW) and, a conversation about Bananarama sprang up. The other two occupants of the car had a superficial knowledge of the fab trio and I was asked which would be my choice Bananarama cuts, seeing as I had their first four albums and a greatest hits comp. I think, for me, the first album, Deep Sea Skiving, holds up the best and still is a fun listen. Tracks like What A Shambles, Cheers Then, Aie A Mwana, Young at Heart, and Wish You Were Here are among my faves. Jeez, that's like half the album. I just had a look at their website and it seems they're still going, despite being one girl short. They're all sexed up, too...what's up with that? They used to be so innocent looking.
