Crayons To Perfume's Girl of the Week is the Madame witch, Janie Jones!


Janie Jones is our most controversial Girl of the Week at Crayons to Perfume! Janie was a 20 “something” year old singer from England who released a string of novelty songs in the 60’s. Janie kicked off her career by appearing at a film premiere in a topless dress in 1964.
In 1967 she released Witches Brew – the significance is not lost – because in Janie’s life, there was certainly something brewing! After her follow of Witch In White, Janie turned from her singing to a new hobby (she quit singing due to a payola scandal where she offered herself as payment!) – as a Madam! She was jailed during the 70’s for the crime of controlling prostitution. In jail she met the accused murderess Myra Hindley who became her jail time companion.

Janie Jones was also married to John Christian Dee, the author of the Pretty Things Don’t Bring Me Down and she sang with the Clash as Janie Jones & The Lash on the 80’s release “House of the JuJu Queen”. Her autobiography is called The Devil and Miss Jones.


Here's Janie singing 1968's 'The Time Has Come'

Crayons To Perfume Girls of the Week are Pili Y Mili!



Spanish teenage twin sisters, Pili and Mili are the Crayons To Perfume's girls of the week! The girls became actresses quite by accident - they were discovered just by being themselves by Nicol Blanchery who was enchanted by their likeness and their humor. The girls learned to dance, sing and act enough to star as precocious sisters who constantly have mistaken identities which lead to silly, fun adventures. They starred in 10 films during the 60's with titles like "Twin Pistols", "Two Crazy Girls" and "Whiskey and Vodka", which you can watch, below.




Crayons To Perfume 13 not only celebrates Pili & Mili who left us with two great songs, but many 60's girl groups with twins and sisters like the Ronettes, Shangri-Las, Pattie Bersaudara, The Honeys and The Pleasure Seekers!

Shirley, Shirley bo Birley Bonana fanna fo Firley

Shirley Ellis started off singing in a band called the Metronomes in the 50's, but it wasn't until the 60's that she found her place in the pop charts with a string of hit songs.

Crayons To Perfume's Girls of the Week are the Unknown Girls of Arc Records, Canada!



The Arc Sound Company formed in Toronto, Canada in 1958 - headquartered in Scarborough, Ontario in the community of Agincourt. The record label started off ushering in the musical careers of such Canadian luminaries as Anne Murry and Catherine McKinnon (amongst others) but soon turned to churning out Sound-A-Like styled records using local talent to "emulate" current hit records of the day. Some of the records on Arc were credited to the groups who recorded them, but there are also many who used studio musicians from the companies who used Arc's pressing plant. So sadly, many artists, and almost all the women on these records went uncredited. Today, we pay homage to the Unknown Girls of Arc Records, as well as the ladies of Hit Records from Nashville and London, England's Embassy Records - as well as a few surprises!

The Unknown Girls of Arc Records on Crayons to Perfume 11 can be found here and you can find the show archive here. Don't forget check WFMU's rock'n'soul Ichiban each Monday morning for a brand new show, and check out stream filled with all the best music!

Crayons To Perfume Girls of the Week are the cross boarder cuties, the Charmaines!


The Charmaines, or Gigi & The Charmaines as they appeared on some of their records were one of the more unique girl-groups. They were from Cincinnati, Ohio - a day's drive from Toronto, Ontario in Canada and their adopted 2nd home of many years. Toronto had a thriving soul and r&b scene in the 60's and was hungry for more of the music that was heavily influencing "the Toronto Sound" - the Charmaines even have three very obscure singles on Red Leaf Records (from Toronto) - which we'll feature at a later date (because I don't have my hands on all of them! If anyone can send me files of the records, please let me know!!!!)
The Charmaines made quite a few records, but the girls seemed to measure their success not on the hit songs that eluded them, but on the busy schedule they kept for live performances - they were working constantly!

The Charmaines were also on local TV frequently, but none of the footage is on Youtube, so instead we've featured some fantastic recent re-union footage from Cleethorpe's Soul Weekender! The girls sound hasn't changed a bit, and here they do 'Eternally'.



Crayons to Perfume 9 features not only the Charmaines, but a set of powerhouse soul sisters, solo pop girls and some swingin' 60's ye ye covers that transform those seemingly sweet and innocent French Femmes into torrid temptresses that tantalize! We end our show with a taste of next weeks Lovely Latin Ladies one hour special - a show filled with super music from the girls of South America, Mexico, Spain and Cuba!!

Crayons to Perfume airs each Monday morning with your host, Glynis Ward aka DJ girlgroupgirl - just search on WFMU Rock 'n Soul Ichiban to find a list of all our other shows - they remain here for your listening pleasure 24/7
