Kim Wilde has released many songs during her career. Some of them have been covered by other artists. On Cover Friday, Wilde Life presents cover versions of Kim Wilde songs. This week: Sixteen Deluxe.

The fact that 'Kids in America' is a popular choice for other bands, especially from America, has already been established a few times in this series of blogs.This week, we present another version of the song from across the big pond.

Sixteen Deluxe were a psychedelic noise-pop band from Austin. Led by frontwoman Carrie Clark & guitarist/producer Chris "Frenchie" Smith, the band was active from 1994 to 2000, releasing 3 full-length albums, 3 7"'s, and 2 EP's on indie and major labels. They reunited in 2010, put out a 7" of new songs in 2015, and only play together once in a while. They recorded their version of 'Kids in America' in 1995. It was released as a B-side on the 7" single 'Reactive' on Propeller Records in January 1996.
