39 Lyon Street, The Associates – Kites (UK 12″)

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1981

A. Front

“Kites” was a one off single released on May 11, 1981 (Credited to 39 Lyon Street). Taking advantage of a clause in their contract that allowed them to record for other labels as long as Billy Mackenzie did not sing lead, they produced a version of Simon Dupree and the Big Sound’s 1967 hit, with vocals from Billy’s old friend Christine Beveridge. (Beveridge and another old partner in crime Steve Reid, performed together as Orbidoig. Billy took to announcing that Christine was one of his favourite singers, much to her embarrassment.) 39 Lyon Street was the address of Christine’s Dundee flat.

An edited version of “Kites” appears on The Associates compilation “Singles” as far as I know the full length 12″ version has not appeared on CD.
