Song of the Day: 'Some Other Girl' (demo) by Kathy Valentine

A couple of interesting demos have popped up on a Go-Go's page I follow. First, here's Kathy Valentine singing a demo of her song "Some Other Girl," later recorded as a single by her pre-Go-Go's band the Textones (it appears the record company wanted "Reason to Leave" to be the A-side and the band wanted this.) Once again, I get a bit of a Debbie Harry vibe off Kathy. But with the gritty lo-fi production, it sounds like an outtake from "Plastic Letters" more than "Debravation," which is to say it's incredibly fun!

Interesting footnote:

The L.A. band Honeychain has been covering the song!
