June Miles-Kingston is a singer and drummer.


Miles-Kingston was an art student who studied at the National Film School. She helped Julien Temple make the Sex Pistols' film The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle. In 1979 she then moved in to squat with Kate Korris of the Slits and Joe Strummer of the Clash and bought a drum kit from Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols for £40.

Within a few months, Miles-Kingston and Korris had formed the Mo-dettes[1] with two friends, Jane Crockford and Ramona Carlier. The Mo-dettes toured for four years, supporting two-tone ska bands such as Madness and The Specials before breaking up in 1982.

Miles-Kingston went on to play drums with Everything but the Girl, the Fun Boy Three (her backing vocals being evident in "Our Lips Are Sealed") and The Communards.[2] In 1986 she contributed backing vocals to several tracks on the Big Country album The Seer. She also contributed backing vocals to songs on Microdisney's The Clock Comes Down the Stairs (1985), as well as their 39 Minutes (1987) and also prominently on The Lover Speaks' "No More I Love You's" (1986), later covered by Annie Lennox on her 1995 album Medusa. In 1989 she covered "Comment te dire adieu?" with Jimmy Somerville, and the song reached number 14 in the UK Singles chart.

She still performs as a jazz singer. At present she is also studying Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
