Photos by Jenny Gavan

I got back last night from the most lovely day in Manchester at the O2 Ritz academy where some of my favourite artists played including Tops, Whitney and Bill Ryder Jones. Those performances will stick with me forever, especially Tops (who's new album gives me the goosebumps) and Whitney, who I saw play a year ago to the TINIEST crowd and last night filled the whole venue just had me feeling all mushy inside. BRJ was also beaut performing a solo set and a cover of Love Will Tear Us Apart. What will stick with me the most is the end of the performances when the venue played Oasis, Joy Division and New Order whilst Whitney's pianist crowd surfed and the crowd went mad - and in light of what happened a few weeks ago, it was just so bloody nice to have everyone together singing and dancing in one big room to show that love is the friggin' answer to life. 

Talking about love - I am in love with how these photos turned out by the wonderful Jenny Gavan, who I discovered through Instagram - oh the powers of the net. We went out on a sunny (ahem, sweaty) day in Liverpool and explored the Baltic Triangle and got some snaps along the way. We even found a bunch of old school ice cream vans parked which made for some good photo props. Be sure to follow Jenny on her blog here, her photos are b-e-a-uuutiful. Thank you for making me feel edgy af Jenny!
