Paris Album 2: Day 6

Here is Lawrence Djing at the Modzik relaunch party. The table was not THAT big. #trickofthelight

Afterwards they took some lovely polaroids of us and some of the guys from Kitsune. I then took a photo of that. Photos upon Photos. Too much perspective.

If you look closely you can see the rain. ALL THE RAIN!!! It will not stop people smoking though. They're brave

Here is Mike getting a hair cut. He was starting to look like a highland terrier. They left the 'tache well alone.

Paris Album 2: Photo Diary-The Weekend

At the weekend we went to a fashion party for Pierre Hardy. There was a bath in the restroom. Naturally.

This is Alan Souchon. Or is it Tom? Some things we just can't ever know.

Paris was full of sunshine over the weekend. This is Canal St Martin. If it was a jam it would totally be our jam.

We're filming a video this week for our new single. I'm trying on some jackets and studying the map of Africa. #everydaysaschoolday

Paris Album 2: Photo Diary Day 3

This is Hey Ho. If you've got a cuter dog I'd like to see it. He wants pizza. With those eyes who can say no?

We did our first interview in a long time today. We turned the camera on them. Yeah we went there.

Mike's been in the studio a long time now. His dentistry is still good but his mind may be going.

Sometimes it pays to have 2 T(h)oms playing the guitar to get that stereo sound. #2t(h)om

This is a robot and his spaceship. They live in the studio. They may not ACTUALLY be robots or spaceships.

Paris Album 2: Photo Diary Day 2

We're really settled into Paris life now. We had a riot at the end of our street yesterday, it's the Parisienne way of saying 'welcome'.

Lawrence Diamond....he plays keybaords, and sometimes plays guitar, and sometimes does photo blogs. #varietyisthespiceoflife!!

We completed the crossword. We're pretty sure it's all correct?

This lovely man walks around near our studio playing incredible trumpet and being an all round nice guy. We'll probably get him in on a couple of tracks. (He played on Mambo No.5 as a younger man!)

We got some mastered mixes through yesterday. Tom basks in the glow of a  studio monitor and has a listen. This one is a genuinely exciting moment. (Not saying that the trumpet isn't!!)

Paris Album 2: Photo Diary Day 1

We're back in Paris doing some more work on our second album. We thought we'd share a few snapshots from our personal collection each day.

This guy was at the Eurostar waiting for the big man.
