Tues 19th July: LOVEBOX
On Sunday I went to Lovebox festival to help out the NOKI team on his fashion show (more deats to follow) and had a lovely day catching up with lots of people I rarely see because we are usually all busy bees in our own separate studio domains. Its a nice chance to discover new musicians (one of my favourite things!)and thanks to Alun for introducing me to Simone Jones who you can check out here in a little docu introduction about her writing and influences. Amongst the new talent at the festival were also the establishment who have influenced us all ......... including Debbie Harry which was extremely exciting....... even for George Michael who was overheard telling her that before he discovered boys, she was his first crush ......... (er, that is information procured from a friend eves-dropping - not phone hacking)
The best act of the day was Beth Ditto who is one of the generation's greatest talents and super human personalities ......... which is why Debbie Harry selected Gossip in her Desert Island Discs which is a must-hear for anyone that missed it ......... she also chose Peaches ....... another artist representing at Lovebox with Simone .......... full circle, full stop.
