Imelda May, Where Have You Been All My Life?
Prior to hearing her sing "Lilac Wine" on the most recent Jeff Beck album, I knew nothing of Imelda May. Seeing her perform as Beck's opener on Monday, has made me officially obsessed.
She's from Dublin, and her first record "Love Tattoo," which seems to be out of print already, sounds as if Wanda Jackson and Mary Ford had a few shots of Wild Turkey at a Cramps listening party and decided to make some music afterward.
Then there is this, which I only heard about and didn't see when it aired.
Her new CD, "Mayhem," gets a September release. Here is the first single and video, "Psycho."
And finally, maybe you'll dig this live show I dug up from April, recorded live at The Luminaire in London, on 4/21/10.
Glad I got that out of my system.
