Terry, Blair And Anouchka - Ultra Modern Nursery Rhymes

Terry, Blair and Anouchka was a short-lived project of a singer Terry Hall (former member of such groups as The Specials, Fun Boy Three, The Colourfield), an American actress/songwriter/producer Blair Booth and then jeweler Anouchka Groce (member of the acid folk band Urmin Spindle). The trio formed this group in 1989, however they split up the very next year. They were great admirers of the 60s dance pop, especially bands like The Coasters or Captain & Tennille. Their first single "Missing" (Chrysalis, CHS 3381) was released in November 1989 and peaked at number 75 on UK Singles Chart. The next and final single "Ultra Modern Nursery Rhymes" (Chrysalis, CHS 3478) which was released in February 1990 charted a couple places lower at number 77. Alongside this second single the trio released their debut full-length album entitled the same as the single "Ultra Modern Nursery Rhymes" (Chrysalis, CCD 1701). Unfortunately this album passed almost unmarked and didn't chart in UK. Album's tracklist : "Ultra Modern Nursery Rhymes", "Missing", "Fishbones And Scaredy Cats", "Lucky In Luv", "Day Like Today""Sweet September Sacrifice", "Beautiful People", "Three Cool Catz", "Happy Families", "Just Go". The album was re-released in 2004 by Cherry Red Records (CDMRED 168) with additional two bonus songs "Hush Hush Baloo", "Love Will Keep Us Together". Personally I think that it's a shame that the trio were hardly unnoticed because their music was so fresh, stylish, sophisticated, full of joy, perfectly arranged and produced.
