Our Overview.

Shakespeare’s Sister, burst into our aural radars in 1988, are releasing ‘Singles Party (1988-2019)’ a comprehensive singles collection containing two brand new tracks plus rarities, unheard tracks and remixes. The Brit-American pop/alt-rock duo formed of the deliciously evocative coupling of singer-songwriters Marcella Detroit and Siobhan Fahey. The group was initially a solo project for Brit Siobhan and her first musical exploration since leaving Bananrama, until Marcella, the American guitarist and backing vocalist began working with Dublin born Fahey in 1989 and forging her musical influences into the duo’s offering, that is until 1993 when the pair had one of the most dramatic break ups in pop history. Lucky for fans Siobhan and Marcella have reunited and written music together for the first time in over 25 years, so this is a little sonic reminder, and hopefully a taster of what new albums are to come from Shakespeare Sister. We wait with bated breath!

The deluxe CD edition features 32 tracks over two CDs in bookpack style packaging with 48-page booklet of rare photos, new sleeve notes and lyrics. Including the huge hit singles ‘Stay’, ‘You’re History,’ ‘I Don’t Care’ and ‘Hello (Turn Your Radio On)’.

‘All The Queen’s Horses’ was produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire) and features members of The Bad Seeds.

In 1989 and 1992 respectively they achieved two Top 10 albums, ‘Sacred Heart’ and ‘Hormonally Yours’. ‘Hormonally Yours’ was certified double platinum in the UK and was a hit around the world. In 1992 their single ‘Stay’ was Number One in the UK for eight weeks. Their other Top 10 hits include ‘You’re History’ and ‘I Don’t Care’.

Fans will be pleased to know that the band are also touring the UK this winter.
