Shakespears Sister was intially a solo project for Fahey after leaving Bananarama, but Marcella Detroit joined in 1989 and that partnership created the most successful period for the band. Hormonally Yours was the follow up to debut Sacred Heart which contained the UK top ten hit Your History. The band bettered that single success when Stay, the second 45 from Hormonally Yours, reached number one on the UK chart and remained there for eight weeks. A further four singles were released, including the reissue of Goodbye Cruel World which had initially faltered pre-Stay.
Detroit left in 1993, and in recent years Fahey has released songs under the Shakespears Sister moniker mainly for download only via her website, although 2009’s Songs From The Red Room did get a two disc CD release in spring 2010.
A Sacred Heart deluxe edition is also tentatively scheduled for February 2013 along with what looks like a video anthology, Shakespears Sister History 1988-2010.
