Suzi Pinns - Rule Britannia

Another classic track from the Jubilee soundtrack. Suzi Pinns (aka Jordan) covering the British patriotic song 'Rule Britannia' and a well know hymn 'Jerusalem' in a opera/punk style. It's very different but has always been one of my favourites, and has me singing along in a high pitch voice which I'm sure sounds v bad.

This version whilst same as the album is from the single which was released in 1978.

Jordan must be one of the most well know faces in punk, through 1977 she was in every tabloid or magazine that was published. She was also infamous for being known as the woman who carved 'Fuck' on Adam Ants back with a razor blade.

Band: Suzi Pinns
Label: Polydor
Year: 1978
1. Rule Britannia
2. Jerusalem

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:

If you like this then buy the excellent soundtrack to the film, both sides of this single are on it.

Hmm, I'll have to check out 'Jubilee' again. Keep meaning to. Haven't seen it for many years and didn't like it then. Time to give it another shot.

It's not Jordan actually singing, of course, but with an image like that she'd be my fist choice to mime just about anything. The new Adele single maybe.

Hi Steve, it's not an easy film to like I must admit.

I didn't know (but should of guessed) that its not Jordan singing. Thanks for that. I never know whether to update the post, or just let people read the comments. What do you think?

第一次是从criterion出的dvd--jubilee里听到的,立刻被震住了,我在第一时间想到的是coctaeu twins,比她们还早了几年,后来我又想起了the fifth element中的那首经典的插曲,这种音乐结合一旦形成必将产生杰作,一点不错,找了好久了,今日得偿所愿,万分感谢,thank you....

It is a mystery who Suzi Pinns actually is.

I'm not sure it was Jordan who sang the Suzi Pinns songs. Did she have operatic training? Because the voice on those songs had formal training.

Hi Joeseph, its defintely not Jordon singing, she is just miming. No idea who the real singer is, but its great.

Thanks for the comment.
