The Alphabetical Archive for 30 August 2012: Ruby Blue

Okay, okay.  I’m a day late with something from section R.  Yesterday was a travel day home from BC and I, er, forgot.  Sorry.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t get caught up.  Ruby Blue was an English folk-rock group that has pretty much disappeared from public view despite the fact that singer Rebecca Pidgeon is the longtime partner of playwright David Mamet.

And there’s more.  Roger Fife, another ex-member, has become a respected producer, working on albums by Antony and the Johnsons, Tricky and, er, Cyndi Lauper.

This is a brilliant song from their 1990 album, Down from Above.
