heard on the wire

Wear high heels and get a record deal

A song-from-each-year-of-my-life for 1996 should be straightforward. Choose a track from the year’s best LP, Murder Ballads, and move on to 1997.

But Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds graced 1994 and and while there are no rules prohibiting multiple appearances — after all, New Order have already done the double — I’m craving variety.

And so to BBC Radio 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne we turn, to a time when she was just another singer from another north east indie band.

Who sang this.
