Getting some photos done is something that’s always been on our list of things to do but whenever we’ve managed to get ourselves in the same place at the same time with a photographer it’s either been dark or absolutely pouring it down. Yesterday was quite nice though because for the first time it was neither dark or pouring it down. It was just absolutely freezing cold instead. However the rather amazing Mike Brits persevered and we finally had our first proper photoshoot. Here’s one of the teaser shots from Sefton Park that Mike has uploaded to his Facebook page and we have been informed that the rest will be following shortly!
After the shoot we had a few hours to spare before we were booked in at LIPA for writing and rehearsals, so we seized the opportunity to do something we’ve never really done before; just relax and go for something to eat. This was definitely a good idea. Elle recommended a lovely place on Hardman Street called Bistro Jacques, at one point during her meal shouting “This place is my FAVOURITE!” to the surprise of everyone else in the restaurant. We strongly urge you to try the steak if you’re ever around the area.
Tomorrow we’re up early and back on the road though, making a return to the wonderful city of London. Tom Robinson has kindly asked us to come down and say a few words on his show on BBC 6 Music (yes!) so who are we to refuse such an offer? We’re not sure when it’s going out on the radio yet but as soon as we know then we’ll let you know too on our Facebook, Twitter and so on. Also, we’re hoping to hijack an open mic while we’re down there so if you know any places that are running a night then give us a shout.
