Or do I mean Katie Derham?

Have a look at the video for the fantastic new single by north London sprog siblings Kitty, Daisy And Lewis, a cover of the old Canned Heat song Going Up The Country:

I've never actually heard the original but isn't that cover just bloomin' marvellous? Absolutely perfect for a summer's day - or any day, really! It's being released as a single on 7th July in a variety of era-hopping formats: 7", CD, download and, rather thrillingly, 78rpm 10". Their first long player will follow on 28th July, and you'll be able to choose from all these releases and more at the Sunday Best Shop.

Mildly Interesting Pop Fact: Kitty, Daisy And Lewis Durham's mum, Ingrid Weiss, used to play the drums in post-punk combo The Raincoats.

Completely Made-Up Pop Fact: In her spare time, youngest sibling Kitty Durham presents the ITV Lunchtime News.

Visit Kitty, Daisy & Lewis's MySpace page for more band info, tour dates, videos and downloads.

Heheheh. What they need, clearly, is a 'posture pal' - as seen in this terrifying 1950s public information film from the USA:

mmm, I like. I remember the raincoats, they were great.

How can you not have the original. It's great.
Here you go.

It's more hippyish, less rockabilly flavoured.

Magic! Another gap in my pop knowledge filled there. I like that version a lot too. Cheers Rachel. (Nice to see you here BTW!)

Spike said...

Ooh, I like that! (Do you get the impression that those kids have never seen an animal before in their lives?)

Excellent stuff!

Yeah! Ruddy townies, coming round here, pettin' our donkeys and cows! ;)
