A little melancholy 80s pop

Anyone know anything about Strawberry Switchblade? I've never heard of them, but they got a  cheery mention in a footnote to the liner notes of Orange Juice's Coals To Newcastle 6-CD box set. Rather good, I thought - a poppier female version of The Pale Fountains.

Goth dolly birds who were pretty much one hit wonders - don't you remember Since Yesterday? It was great.

Thanks Artog! Perhaps I'm too young… or sheltered. I'm (only 35) and pop was banned in my house thanks to culchie conservative parents!
