This Face This Name
This song has been good to me these last few years.
Melanie Garside is someone who has been there, done it, and got the proverbial t-shirt.
Back in the mid 1990s she was in Tabitha Zu, later just Zu, and possessed of a mop of multi coloured hair braids. She turned up later playing bass in Queen Adreena, and was in the Mediaeval Baebes for a bit, appearing on their Miribilis album.
'This Face This Name' is the closing track on her second album Home, from 2008, a melange of folk and indie rock.
Maple Bee was the name she used as a Mediaeval Baebe, and she's still out there, both as Maple Bee and Melanie Garside.
