She was a noted British singer and songwriter and had successes with "There's A Guy Works Down The Chips Shop Swears He's Elvis," Billy Bragg's "A New England" and "Fairy tale in New York" with the Pogues. She also recorded backing vocals with bands such as The Smiths. In 2000, she released "Tropical Brainstorm," an album heavily influenced by Cuban music, a love of hers in recent years, and the best album of her career.
