(Ever Such) Pretty Girls

In the 1970s Kitty, George, Dave and the other founders of The Ukulele Orchestra met in Leeds. They jammed and played, worked and drank with friends, fellow students and musicians who achieved renown as Green Gartside (Scritti Politti), Frank Tovey (Fad Gadget), Mark Almond, Dave Ball (Soft Cell), The Mekons, The Gang of Four, The Three Johns, Abrasive Wheels among others. The Orchestra grew out of this scene, perhaps as an antidote.

In the 1990s The Ukulele Orchestra recorded these classic punk and new-wave songs from the 1970s, now released in 2015. These all acoustic recordings perhaps trace a line from skiffle through rock and roll, to punk and the current ukulele resurgence.
