Goodbye Claudia Fontaine, the unknown famous face of 80s pop | Music | The Guardian

Goodbye Claudia Fontaine, the unknown famous face of 80s pop | Music | The Guardian: "Soul singer Claudia Fontaine, who has died aged 57, was a Zelig-like figure in the 1980s, backing up performances by Elvis Costello, the Jam and the Specials – and was not the only unsung pop hero of the age

 I didn’t know Claudia Fontaine’s name until this week, when she died at the age of 57. I knew her face, though, and her voice: she was as much part of my pop adolescence as being poised over the pause button of the radio cassette recorder while listening to John Peel, or wondering whether I’d get back to Paddington from some London venue for the last train home to Slough."
