Replaced her uniform with dresses silk and green, Called herself Kristeen, Came to London town...*
We first mentioned Kristeen Young some time ago, (05/21/01 NEWS: BOWIE LENDS SUPPORT TO YOUNG) when we posted the picture above, which was taken exactly two years ago today at a KY show in New York. Kristeen's fan base has grown steadily since, and now she is scheduled, finally, to play a London date.
Kristeen will be playing at the Camden Underworld on Monday June 9th at around 7.30pm. She also plans to play more dates in town during the weekend that she's over here, and we'll let you know any further developments as soon as we have them. Thanx to BowieNetter FredTheGnome for the info.
Meanwhile, those of you that were smart enough to get your hands on a promo CDR of Kristeen's latest album, Breasticles, (either via our competition here (10/07/02 NEWS: KRISTEEN YOUNG AT CBGB's TONIGHT - WIN HER ALBUM NOW!) or directly from Kristeen herself) should put the CD somewhere safe as you have an instant collector's item in your possession.
The album is due on N Records of Portugal at the end of the month, and it will contain two new songs and "a new improved version" of Saviour, as David has re-recorded this wonderful duet with Kristeen. So hang on to your promo as it contains what is now the rare original version of Saviour.
