RECAP - Guillemots Rock East London!

The Lomography Gallery Store East London was in turn rocked to the rafters and lulled into a dreamlike wonder as the brilliant Guillemots played in store!

It was one of the most hotly anticipated instore events we’ve had. All day the phones were ringing off the hook, as no one wanted to miss the opportunity to see their favourite band play in an intimate gig in East London. People turned up early and nervously and excitedly watched Fyfe, Magrao, Arista and Grieg get tuned up, then, when we couldn’t wait a moment longer, they were off! Six beautiful acoustic songs, performed with the utmost passion right here in our basement.

Following our Lomography x Guillemots rumble there is an exhibition of fantastic photos on the wall, here’s the winner, Kylewis, in front of the photos with her signed vinyl. She also got the chance to chat with band and have a few cheeky photos taken with Fyfe himself!
