Out On Blue Six : Kirsty MacColl

As we approach Christmas my thoughts often turn to one of my favourite singers, Kirsty MacColl. It's somewhat inevitable - after all she did give us, alongside The Pogues, the greatest Christmas carol of our age in Fairytale of New York. However, Kirsty is intrinsically linked forever with this time of year through a much less happier association as tomorrow will mark the sixteenth anniversary of her untimely death.

To commemorate and give thanks to Kirsty, I've chosen one of her less-remembered tracks, 1983's Terry, check out the video featuring (and possibly directed by, I can't rightly recall now) Ade Edmondson
