This Is A Woman's World
Pop fact- Drew of Across The Kitchen Table was almost in this issue of The Face. But that's not solely why we're here today. Cover star Neneh Cherry has a new record out on Monday and it's had some pretty positive reviews and sounds interesting. In 1996 she had several hits including a global smash Youssou N'Dour and this excellent string laden, trip hop song.
Woman was Neneh's response to James Brown's It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World and had Bernard Butler fresh from Suede on guitar. At the end of the 80s she'd had her first taste of pop stardom with the Raw Like Sushi album- superior Ladbroke Grove pop-rap... 'and all that you need is the air that you breathe'
And to those of us of a certain age she'll always be the woman doing the Buffalo Stance on Top Of The Pops, seven months pregnant.
