NZ Music Month

New Zealand Music Month - Day 5

Look Blue Go Purple were: Denise Roughan - guitar, vocals; Lesley Paris - drums; Kath Webster - guitar, vocals; Kathy Bull - bass; Norma O'Malley - keyboards, flute, guitar, vocals. For all that they were five women, though, they weren't A Girl Group, with all the connotations that description would imply. This group were actual musicians and songwriters.

Their best known song is probably Cactus Cat, but I like this next one, Circumspect Penelope, better. It's a live recording: the video isn't up on You Tube, but is available on the "Second Season" DVD, and the song itself is available on the compilation CD "Look Blue Go Purple Compilation".
