The Lemon Twigs Interview 2016  From Hollywood to the Carpenters

The Lemon Twigs Interview 2016
From Hollywood to the Carpenters

The Lemon Twigs Do Hollywood. Two Long Island brothers, The Lemon Twigs were born in the 1990s; at heart they’re children of the 1960s and 1970s. The songs on their debut album ‘The Lemon Twigs Do Hollywood’, released on October 21 by 4AD veer from The Beatles and Beach Boys inspired pop with an off kilter twist to the kind of glitzy croonerisms you may have found in the chintzy casinos and music halls of that era.

Blitz Kid Marilyn 80's icon

Blitz Kid Marilyn, Getting to Know the 80’s icon: Interview

As one of the most photographed Blitz Kids of his generation, Marilyn (né Peter Robinson) was a fixture on London’s underground club scene long before he released a record. He modelled his look on Marilyn Monroe, riffing off the classic bombshell look at first (“it used to take me at least two hours to get ready just to buy a bottle of milk!”) then later adopting a less contrived style with long blonde dreadlocks and a gender-fluid wardrobe that veered from exquisite Antony Price gowns to crop tops and chinos.
