BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
Born 1959, Chicago, USA. When aged only 14 Gage joined the Soulettes with whom she stayed until she was 21. During this period they changed their name to First Love and then Love, subsequently recording an album for Chycago International Music in 1980.
However, by then Gage had departed to join the backing singers for Captain Sky. She made her solo debut with “Garden Of Eve” in 1981 on Atlantic Records to little reaction. Gage then sang with new wave group Ministry, appearing in shows with Madness, Police and Culture Club.
After singing a commercial for Ultra-Curl, she recorded her first album Virginity on CIM/Epic which, like Captain Sky’s records, was produced by Don Burnside. Billed as the unofficial answer to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, the album track, “Doin’ It In A Haunted House” made the bottom of the US R&B chart and reached the UK Top 50 in June 1984.
