On this date in 1977, CELIA AND THE FABULOUS MUTATIONS released the single YOU BETTER BELIEVE ME, (October 17th, 1977).

Discovered by Dai Davies, the then manager of The Stranglers, Celia Gollin of ‘Celia and The Mutations’ was a London cabaret singer who had previously worked with Brian Eno.

She so impressed Davies that he managed to persuade The Stranglers to become her backing band – ‘The Mutations’ – on her June 1977 single ‘Mony Mony’. The B-side was ‘Mean To Me’, an early Stranglers number.

Although it had the prestigious Stranglers connection, the single failed to set the charts alight. Despite the setback, Celia was up for a second single but this time one that would feature a punk-pub rock supergroup, that of JJ on bass (no Jet, no Hugh), Wilko Johnson on guitar and Terry Williams (Rockpile, Man) on drums.

The new 45 was Celia and The Mutations’ final outing, YOU BETTER BELIEVE ME with the band credited as ‘Celia & The Fabulous Mutations’.
