“Sister Vanilla” was a nickname directed at Linda Reid by her older brothers William Reid and Jim Reid — better recognized to music enthusiasts as the market leaders from the pioneering sound pop music group the Jesus and Mary String. While Linda was still a schoolgirl once the Jesus and Mary String were experiencing their 1st burst of popularity in the middle-’80s, she got matured right into a gifted vocalist by enough time the group documented its final recording, 1998’s Munki. William and Jim asked Linda to sing the music “Mo Tucker” through the Munki classes, and got her on tour once the music group hit the street to get the album. Significantly less than a yr later on, the group acrimoniously split, but Jim and William suggested recording an recording as a car for Linda. Classes occurred in piecemeal style over the following several years, partially on a house recording setup set up in Linda’s toned and partially at JAMC’s studio room, The Drugstore, using the Reid siblings became a member of by Stephen Pastel from the Pastels and fellow previous JAMC member Ben Lurie. (Provided their quarreling, Jim and William generally documented their contributions individually.) The fruits of the efforts, the recording Little Pop Rock and roll, premiered in 2005 by japan P-Vine label beneath the group name Sister Vanilla, and was embraced by critics and JAMC supporters being a pop-wise, somewhat sunnier variation over the band’s personal sound. Within the springtime of 2007, the Glasgow-based Chemikal Underground label finally released Small Pop Rock in britain because the Jesus and Mary String started a low-key reunion.
