The Belle Stars - Iko Iko


On this date in 1982, The Belle Stars released their fourth 7-inch record, "Iko Iko". It was backed by "The Reason". The single reached the #35 spot in the U.K. but did not chart in the U.S. until 1989 when it was included on the Rain Man soundtrack. Then, it reached the #14 spot on the U.S. singles chart. Both songs were included on their 1983 self-titled debut album. The London all-girl new wave band formed when The Bodysnatchers disbanded. Sarah Jane Owen, Stella Barker, Penny Leyton and Miranda Joyce were The Bodysnatchers who formed the new band. The Belle Stars disbanded in 1986 after one album. They have occasionally reunited to perform.
