Tues 12th April: The English Riviera - Metronomy
Metronomy launched their 3rd album at Rough Trade East yesterday ......... grab your copy now! Joe Mount is another Brighton art school graduate and part of the generation infiltrating the world at large which has been an awesome process to watch from the sidelines. Seeing the very first illustrated canvas case CD and attending early gigs when their chests lit up with £1 shop bulbs .......with dance routines from Sparkle Motion........ through to the first videos directed by Daniel Brereton with set design by Helen McIntyre and styled by Kim Howells......... to headlining festivals and then the ultimate surprise of finding out they played for Karl Lagerfeld and have been championed by the head of Chanel!! The line-up has altered with Gabriel departing to set up Your Twenties but one consistent attribute is the unfaltering and reliable brilliant videos .........
