Baby Carla – Bad Girl Rumble


Many images come to mind when listening to Baby Carla: Serge Gainsbourg in sequins brandishing a flick-knife; Duane Eddy brawling on with the Shangri-La’s; Connie Francis fresh from juvy hall with only vengeance on her mind. The rebel-rousing twang of surf colliding with the hip-shaking go-go grooves of European Yé-Yé. Fresh from recording and touring with cult favourites Sacri Cuori, and collaborations with Calexico, M. Ward and Tom Waits’ right-hand man Marc Ribot, Baby Carla makes her Edinburgh debut with a mix of original material and remixed classics in an intimate space.
