The Belle Stars - Hiawatha


On this date in 1981, The Belle Stars released their debut single, "Hiawatha". It was backed by "Big Blonde". They did not release an album until 1983 and neither of these two songs were included. 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 two albums. They have occasionally re-formed to perform.
