Hey sweeties, I have some exciting news. I’m told that our track ‘Venus In Hollywood’ will feature on French DJs Bart and Baker’s new electro-swing compilation “Burlesque Swing.”

It’s out June 16th on the Wagram Label in France but also iTunes & import.

You can preorder it via Amazon here:

Can an F-cup be classed as teeny weeny?, Fleurtini's buying bikinis, Make mine a mojito please - posted on May 11, 2011 by

she… wore… an….

Summer is coming here in London town, not a moment too soon after the “Big Freeze” of winter. I’m waiting (impatiently!) for my holiday in the South of France in a few months time, and I just purchased myself a new bikini in preparation (before the shops start bringing in AW2011 collections and swimwear vanishes *just* as it’s getting warm).

As it happens, it’s in frilly polka dots and a vintage halter style and so I couldn’t resist humming this 60s classic as I tried it on. OK, I confess that mine’s navy-blue and not yellow (citrus colours + porcelain skin = jaundice!), but grant me a little poetic license…

Pool-side cocktail, anyone?

All right Mr. De Mille, I’m ready for my close-up…

Last week we had the pleasure of shooting footage at the amazing Shunt on Bermondsey Street, before they closed their doors for good. The “Victorian” stage structure, built in an old tobacco factory in south London, provided us with the perfect industrial-yet-vintage setting for our new video for Walk With Me.

Video is coming soon, but whilst Liminal are busy editing I thought I’d share some stills from the night, taken by Mark Woszczalski.

The last one is my favourite, I love the segue from slippers to sparkles. Oh, the glamour…

art, maxfield parrish, no wonder the other kids thought I was weird, nudie nymphs - posted on November 26, 2010 by

parrish skies

It’s been a beautiful day here in London. Bitterly cold but crisp of air, blue of sky, and with the kind of luminous sunshine that seems to envelop everything in liquid rose-gold.

Looking out the window at the trees (I’m not silly enough to actually be outside!), the last remaining autumn leaves look like their edges are dipped in glitter. They, and the fresco-like sunset behind them, remind me of the work of Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966), one of my favourite Art Nouveau artists.

 Daybreak (1922)

I was romantic of mind even when I was little (in case the fairy costume hasn’t given that away already) and someone once kindly gave a calendar of Parrish’s work, guessing correctly that I’d fall in love with the fantastical imagery. Once that year was through I couldn’t bear to throw it away, so I retained all of the images and plastered my walls with them, joining the posters of Marilyn, Fred & Ginger, Bogart & Bacall and River Phoenix that I had in my bedroom (the latter being the one nod towards the popular culture of the time!).

 Contentment (1927)

Twelve magical images that I used to escape into, imagining I was that nymph dangling my toes into the still water…

 Evening (1921)

Gazing at the starry sky…

 Stars (1926)

With my head in the clouds (a happy place to keep it!).

Ecstasy (1929)

Who are your favourite artists and how did you discover them?  I’d love to know.
