Next, it's time to stop traffic the Gillian Hills way, here she comes doing the Cha Cha along the central reservation
One of my fave Gillian songs now, and I ain't lying - a proper yé-yé groover which is so yé-yé that April March covered it on her Paris in April yé-yé tribute album.
This next one will get all the boys (and most of the girls) fawning over our Gillian *puff puff*
and if you don't believe me check out the video
And finally, penned by Gillian herself, this beautifully baroque and Françoise Hardy-esque little gem from her last ep.
If you hurry, you may also find a song in our L'Amour à la Chaîne thread, and there's another featured in one of our mixtapes.
Gillian Hills: Beat Girl, Blow Up doll, ice lolly-sucking devotchka and all-round Swinging Mademoiselle, we salute you!
If you enjoyed this little introduction to the music of Gillian Hills, I can highly recommend the Twistin' The Rock compilation which, although hard to find as a physical CD, is available here, here and here among other places
And if you want to delve deeper into the world of Gillian, I suggest you start by visiting her at her personal website, where she relates her own story and guides you through her music, acting and modelling careers, as well as showing off her poetry and illustrations.
After that, you could check out Cha Cha Charming's profile of Gillian which focusses on her musical output, and then move on to the Ready Steady Girls site for a biog and audio clips.
