    Kirsty MacColl: The One & Only
    Kirsty MacColl: The One & Only
    Everything about Kirsty MacColl defied the conventional 'pop' category, yet she embraced and defended the genre, redeeming it with literate writing that had seldom been seen in British pop since the glory days of Ray Davies and the Kinks. Her music was funny, irreverent and endearingly catchy and her five albums in almost twenty years became symbolic rescue missions to retrieve British pop music from all that was saccharine and shallow, manufactured and mainstream. Overcoming agonising stage fright, long periods of writer's block and depression, she created a hugely successful solo career and collaborated with a legion of people from the Rolling Stones to the Happy Mondays. Her tragic death in a senseless boating accident came shortly after the release of her long - awaited album Tropical Brainstorm, an Anglo - Latin pop hybrid that embraced her passion for Cuba. The One & Only is the definitive Kirsty MacColl biography and a tribute to a highly original talent.
