Just got back from an instore performance at Rise Records in Bristol by Tim Wheeler and Emmy the Great, majorly cute couple. They performed tracks from their Christmas album - This Is Christmas. I love Christmas songs, I love Emmy the Great, and I love Ash, so I've been pretty excited about this. I turned up in my Christmas hair bow, earrings, necklace and Christmas tree brooch, so was pretty glad to find my friend Gareth was wearing his felt Santa jacket :-D
I found the whole thing slightly emotional as the last time I saw Ash was on a first date with an ex, he then bought me '1977' on vinyl and 'Shining Light' then became one of our songs (get the violins out). 'Sometimes' is without a doubt one of the most epic breakup tracks of all time and needless to say, it was played a lot this summer. I have to admit I shed a tear when they launched into a cover of Wham - Last Christmas. Anyway, enough.
They also sang Tracers (an Ash song), which was ace. They were signing copies of the album afterwards so I bought it as a little christmas present to myself from myself. I went to get it signed, turned into a complete moron, couldn't think of anything witty to say, went bright red etc. What else did you expect? This guy was on my wall when I was a teenager! On the other hand my friend Steve, who was next in the queue started having some random convo about yule log with them that seemed to go on for ages! All I can say is Tim put his arm around me and he felt warm. Heres my signed album and a photo of me with the cute couple where I look like a complete idiot *sigh*.
I'll leave you with a video of my favourite song from the album. Yeah, go buy it, It's a sweet album. Merry Christmas xxx
