Boudist recooked in 24 hours

After many years with the same design and crumbling Movable Type blogging system i’ve just converted my blog to WordPress and a new template.

Ladyhawke

Here’s some snaps i took a few weeks ago of Pip Brown aka Ladyhawke. We wandered the streets round the Modular offices looking for interesting backdrops.

Peaches live at the Enmore Theatre
