If this was circa 2005 and Claudia and Frances were writing a Myspace profile it would read something like this: love the colours grey and black, Acne, playing dress up, feet in the air shots, painting skateboards, Monki, Fridays, visiting galleries, black leather, white denim, Apartmento magazine and transparent plastics.
Close friends for over 20 years, today they co-blog under the banner Helen Glory where they try “not to take ourselves too seriously creating low tech, low budget shoots”. One day they’ll be donning Hawaiian shirts, the next there’ll be a post with hand painted 3D versions of Lichtenstein paintings, and Big Deal’s Alice just so happens to be Francis’ sister too.
Above they give B*Witched a run for their money and below are the childhood tunes which inspired the whole shebang,
Hanson - Mmmbop
B*witched - Rollercoaster
Vanilla - No way No Way
Shanks & Bigfoot - Sweet Like Chocolate
Savage Garden - Truly Madly Deeply
Aqua - Turn Back Time
Chumbawamba - Tubthumping (I Get Knocked Down)
The Corrs - Runaway
Six Pence None the Richer - Kiss Me
