I first covered Billy Holiday's Strange Fruit at an electro-acoustic night in Glasgow's Nice And Sleazy bar, adding a bit of blues harp to a straight-ish interpretation of the song by Scottish singer Teresa Magee. Some time later at the Brutalise Studio in Huddersfield, Cecil Zinyuku, a dance music producer for the likes of De'Lacy, came up with a beautiful new arrangement. It's up there now on the Jazz Network, on British blues band m62 goddam's page. We hope you like it..
