Another quick post today as it was a year ago on the 15th that I went on my first date with the lovely Sophia. We went to see Gwenno/Brontosaurus Chorus/Lucky Soul at Cargo. We've both been ill so we're celebrating today.
I've always loved Gwenno's (yes, Gwenno from The Pipettes ) solo stuff. I've seen her live like 10 times now and the songs are all excellent. I even traveled down to Brighon to see her first solo gig back in 2008 at the Moksha Cafe.

And Lucky Soul's "Lips Are Unhappy" was one of my favourite songs of 2006:
