beat-of-the-week-ep7

Each week the track getting the most love and air time at  B R E A K T H E L O O P  H Q  gets a feature on the blog. This week it’s: We’re keeping it in the local north London family this week and throwing it back six years to when I first heard these Crouch End boys play at a little festival in the borough.

Anyway, I digress… the point I want to make in this post is that although modeling truly does have lots of awesome bits, the reality of it is that it is generally unglamorous and almost always bloody hard work! My friend Siobhan recently…
