lorna stucki used to sing in the piano bars in soho and was well known for her ability to blow everyone else off the stage with her earsplittingly voice. a favourite set piece of hers was to go om stage with a "faulty" microphone so that she would have to sing without amplification.

andre shapps has been writing, producing and performing for the last six years.
in 1985 he formed one of tge britains first rap acts, fission, whose best known track was"miller light" - a rap about glen miller.
later notable events include remixing credits on cherelle and alexander o'neil's "saturday love", janice joplin's "mercedes benz" , heavy D and the boys' "we got our own thing" andthe grid's "floatation" .

a chance meeting between lorna and andre led to a remake of "last night a DJ saved my life"in the style of phillip glass wich became a big club hit. the two decided to work together as a bona fide act together rather than a [roducer with a featured vocalist. last year has been spent writing and recording material for an album.

the first fruit of these recordings is the single "lady day". this billie holiday tribute comes in three mixes: a house-styled "burning bush" version, the reggae influenced "resurrection" version , and an a cappella "feel free" mix, along with the bonus track "christian" .
