Battle Hymns For Children Singing The Best Of Haysi Fantayzee - Haysi Fantayzee

Battle Hymns For Children Singing The Best Of Haysi Fantayzee
Haysi Fantayzee were formed in 1981 by fashion photographer Kate Garner, former Animal Magnet member Paul Caplin and Jeremy Healy, a well-known face on London's club scene. Together they set about injecting a sense of fun and adventure into the music scene, wearing outlandish, selfdesigned costumes and dreadlocks, and writing songs that married sexual subversion with deliberately disposable and cocksure dayglo pop.

Their 'Dickensian Rasta' look was an immediate hit and saw their debut single 'John Wayne Is Big Leggy' rise to number 11 in the national charts. In their brief career they would also enjoy chart success with 'Holy Joe' and 'Shiny Shiny'. All three hits are reprised on this CD, as is their sole album, Battle Hymns For Children Singing.

The package also features a host of bonus tracks, remixes, and sleevenotes written with the co-operation of both Healy and Garner. The former went on to become one of the UK's most successful DJs, while the latter is an accomplished and in-demand photographer for artists including Sinead O'Connor, Bjork, David Bowie and others.

Goddess

'Goddess' is a classic example of the changing face of pop music in the late 80's early 90's, by fusing styles, samples, beats and hooks as perfectly illustrated by their hit single 'Hippychick’.

'Goddess' is a classic example of the changing face of pop music in the late 80's early 90's, by fusing styles, samples, beats and hooks as perfectly illustrated by their hit single 'Hippychick’.

The CD features the 12 tracks of the original album release plus four bonus tracks.

The CD features the #8 UK smash 'Hippychick' which also reached the top 20 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and the US Hot Dance Club Play chart, outselling Delite's Groove Is In The Heart which was released at the same time.

 

The bonus tracks are: Hippychick - Never Trust A Hippy. The result of a studio accident, when a piece of sampling machinery broke and the stuttered samples over the top of the breaks became the mix that broke Hippychick with the loved-up, E-d out Brits who holidayed in the Med in 1990.Scorpio Rising - the story of a man who got his ultimate, final kicks watching a his wife have sex with a stranger through a two way mirror as he gradually chokes to death.  Very limited release as a bonus track for the cassingle release of Out Of My Mind. 1st time on CD.Keep The Faith - a pre-Things Can Only Get Better tune written to keep spirits up in the darkest days of Thatcher's rule in the late 80s.  Never previously released, although it was played live a few times. 1st time on CD.Never Stop - originally part of the Goddess album, ended up as a USA-only B side. Another feminist anthem-on-a-motorbike.
