One of my favourite bands on Damaged Goods…Thee Headcoatees were four girls from the Medway towns, KYRA RUBELLAHOLLY GOLIGHTLYMISS LUDELLA BLACK and BONGO DEBBIE. They started life as mates of Thee Headcoats doing a few songs on stage and then came the great idea to do a proper album, ‘Girlsville’ was recorded and released on Hangman Records and a great new band was born. Whenever Thee Headcoats played Thee Headcoatees also did a set, at one time it seemed like they were more popular that the boys, more albums followed and we did a few singles plus a compilation of all their singles on an album called Sisters Of Suave.

DG161They called it a day in 1999 and check out our latest set of four re-issues of their Vinyl Japan albums out on vinyl and CD.
