Girls at Our Best!

  • Girls at Our Best!
  • Pleasure (UK Happy Birthday) 1981 
  • The Peel Sessions EP (UK Strange Fruit) 1987 

Judy Evans is the only female Girl at Our Best! but her untrained trilling is the band’s most distinctive element. The male musicians play pep-charged tunes about narcissistic youth; unflagging chord changes and witty lyrics prevent portentousness. A good romp. Thomas Dolby is among the players.

The Peel Sessions EP, recorded in February 1981, contains, among other selections, a medley of three singles.
