    Default Band/Female singer, British, 1980s

    I have been racking my brains about this...a Brit indie band, 1980s, girl lead singer (or maybe even just her and her backing band) with initials like JJ or LL (but not Lydia Lunch or Lene Lovich)

    Album had picture of singer quite close up...dark eyes, woolly hat...

    lots of bass in the songs...

    one lyric went along...'popcorn has gone to New York...and he had to stop and get some popcorn'...

    The band is called "Essential Logic"; the saxophonist that formed it is called Lora Logic.
