These three ladies have been with me pretty much since I moved to London, I have been in bands with/ lived with/ worked with/ holidayed with/ laughed and loved these beautiful people for near 7 years. They have remained constant, even at times when constant meant not seeing each other for a few months, because you know, it's "LONDON", and that just kinda seems to happen, one minute its March and then it's August and Rachel has another new hair colour.
So let me introduce you to the lucky three.
Amy: Or better known as Theoretical Girl, I met Amy at 18. We met through our ex boyfriends (at least they were good for something.) On arriving in New Cross London Sep 2005 for university, we "freshers" headed to The New Cross Inn. A solo artist, Theoreticl Girl was playing a gig. I thought she was ace. Her hair was the reason I chopped off my waist length hair into a short black bob. A few months later, by chance, I started seeing a boy who just happened to be in the same band as Amy's boyfriend. Amy taught me to play bass, and the rest, as they say, is history. Amy is the sweetest, kindest, most generous person I know. And she always has AMAZING HAIR, oh and an IMMENSE record collection.
Marine: aaaand again, through ex boyfriends! Marine was part of The Frenchies, (she will kill me for sayin this!) The DJ set from Nice. She lived in Holloway and she had a fridge in her room, with two double beds pushed together? We always used to eat curry from a joint frequented by the Darkness... Classy... She had this amazing mane, curly and blonde and to her waist. When we first met, we could not understand a word each other was saying, my geordie, and her half spoken English, but we drank through it. I helped her with her Geordie, she helped me with my French. For the first three years of our friendship, we insisted upon visiting EVERY Strada across London, and I had the same dish EVERY time. It was a comfort I guess? God knows... We took a ski-ing trip one year, and let's just say we have a difference in opinion on how to ski! Now a hot shot lawyer, with straight brown hair, and still every inch as beautiful.
