“Yo-yo, Ye-ye” b/w “Bum-Ban-Ban-Ban” Kinita on Philips Records (Spain) (1969) “No one can be a ye-yé without playing with a yo-yo. The yo-yo of the ye-yés, the ye-yés of the yo-yos,” While real fame eluded her, this song, Kinita’s final single, was a hit. Then like the yo-yo itself, she went out of fashion and slipped quietly back into obscurity. Attempts to find the singer have failed and she remains a mystery. The B-side is “Bum ban Ban ban,” a version of British singer Lulu’s, Boom Bang-a-bang,” Kinita also achieved some notoriety for her numerous and complicated hairdos, earning herself the nickname ‘the princess of lacquer’. She has a Tina Turner thing going on here I think.
