For a shoegazing band from Leeds, it is amusing that I fundamentally remember Pale Saints for a Nancy Sinatra cover. The band formed in 1987 with Ian Masters on bass/vocals, Graeme Naysmith on guitar and Chris Cooper on drums. In late 1990, Meriel Barham, the original vocalist of Lush, joined the band as second guitarist and vocalist. The next year, the band released the EP Flesh Balloon and on its flipside was the their unexpected cover of ‘Kinky Love’. It managed to balance the psychedelic jangly riffs with Barham’s soothing and sophisticated vocals that did enough to honour Sinatra’s original.
