A conversation on twitter (with Eddie from the lovely Another Form Of Relief blog) just made me re-visit my old photo bucket account. I re-discovered Help She Can’t Swim the other week, especially their brilliant first album Fashionista Saper Dance Troupe. I knew I had taken photos of them at some point and while harddrives have died, computers have been thrown out and/or updated and photo-CD’s have been lost over the years, my old photobucket account remains…a bucket full of memories if you like. I have no idea why I uploaded such small versions of the photos at the time, but that’s all there is.
Help She Can’t Swim – live in-store at the old Rough Trade in Neal’s Yard on 18th March 2006.
It was cramped, sweaty and completely awesome.
What can I say? Fermez la fucking bouche! The band broke up in 2007, but Tom still makes music under the name Lonely Ghosts.
