Tropic of Creole: The Indiscretions of August Darnell

Vivien Goldman, New Musical Express, 24 September 1983

The story so far... We are about to meet SUSANDRA MINSKY, who could be described as August Darnell's first wife, although they never did get down to the paperwork. Susandra, a determined, elegant woman in her early 30s, as auburn shoulder length curls suggesting a hippy past — a past that includes a childhood spent with the Browder brothers, Stony and August, and a long involvement with The Savannah Band and briefly with Kid Creole And The Coconuts.
