Everything Everything are a band we can’t keep off repeat at the moment and if you’ve got very keen ears you may have even heard them on our spotify playlist. If not you can head over there now… there’s a whole mix of tracks you’re missing out on!
Our contributor Toni Ogle managed to catch the band at The Talking Heads, Southampton last Monday. What a lucky girl, here’s what she had to say….
After seeing the band Everything Everything by chance for the first time at Reading festival, I eagerly awaited their sold-out Southampton show at The Talking Heads.
Surrounded by an assortment of people of all different ages, I waited for the foursome to take to the stage getting more and more impatient by the minute in the small and stuffy venue. From the moment that Mike, Jonathan, Jeremy and Alex stepped out however, the atmosphere was electric. Jonathan’s unique and powerful voice filled the room whilst the rest of the band sang in the background creating an almost choir sound as they sang in harmony.
What’s really admirable about this band and made the evening even more special is that not only are they exceptionally talented but they also enjoy themselves and this definitely reflected in their show. You could tell this particularly towards the end of the evening when the music became louder and the vocals became more passionate.
The highlight of the evening for me was the performance of ‘Leave the engine room’ throughout which Jonathan’s slow and soothing voice engulfed the crowed sending them into a subdued state of awe. They ended with ‘Photoshop handsome’, which got everyone in the crowd moving with energetic beats and jolted singing. Everyone in the room was having fun, including the band and the atmosphere was amazing – a perfect way to end the evening.
Taking a step back from her successful singing career, pop sensation Lily Allen has turned her hand to more fashionable ventures. While most celebrities enter the fashion world as wannabe designers, Lily has taken a typically different route by launching her own vintage store.
Teaming up with half-sister Sarah Owen, Lily Allen has created a vintage store for modern fashionistas under the name of ‘Lucy in Disguise’, (a parody of the Beatles song, ‘Lucy in the sky’). The sisters have hand-picked a selection of the best vintage clothing from every decade, from beaded gowns of the ‘30s to sequinned catsuits of the ‘80s - and even some pieces from Lily’s own wardrobe. With a special hiring service available and surprisingly reasonable price points, the duo have made vintage fashion accessible to the masses.
The store launched to great success a couple of weeks ago with friends such as Daisy Lowe and Jaime Winstone in attendance. With a vintage make-up salon, retro blow dry bar and stylists on hand to advise, Lucy in Disguise has become a real life dressing up box for the true fashion lover.
Go have a play yourself at Lucy in Disguise, 10 Kings Street, Covent Garden, London.

The ‘Perfume Diaries’ aims to take you on a trip through the history of scent from ancient times to the present day and discover exactly what inspired some of the world’s best-loved fragrances.
Curated by leading Perfumer, Roja Dove, the exhibition uncovers the world of perfume and offers a rare chance to see original sketches and bottles as well as old advertisements and personal anecdotes.
Last week Cellardoor were invited to the launch of Mina UK’s first stand alone store, and boy were we excited. The store, which is located on Great Titchfield Street (just off Oxford St.) is filled with rails and rails of fabulous vintage-inspired frocks and we felt like we were in our very own walk-in wardrobe. Thankfully, the DJ was there to remind us this was a party, so naturally we grabbed one of the delicious cocktails on offer and got back to mingling amongst the pretty dresses.
Mina UK first began life in 2003 as a small fashion clothing stall at Portobello Market in London’s Notting Hill, and has since become a favourite amongst celebs including Fearne Cotton and Sienna Miller. The label’s new collections is full of great stylish dresses, skirts and jackets at affordable prices – we urge to take a look!
There will be 65 stands offering vintage fashion, textiles and accessories from the 1800s to 1970s – and let us tell you, there are some bargains to be had.
If you fancy winning then all you need to do is comment on this blog post, tweet about our competition (@cellardoormag) or blog about us – each of these will count as one entry, so you’ll have more chance of winning if you do all 3! We’ll pick a winner at 12pm tomorrow.
