It was before it had opened, so it was a bit strange. Especially the weird noises coming from behind the pins…
Spooky goings-on aside, the shoot was to help out a friend who goes by the name of Cliff Gloom, best known as one half of Feeling Gloomy – a favourite club night of mine which I haven’t been to in too long (since it moved to a Friday, in fact).
They are putting on a special 1950s Valentines-themed bowling and dating night in a week and a bit, and needed some promotional photos. I was only too pleased to oblige!
Bowl Me Over is on Monday February 11th from 7pm-11pm at the retro Rowan’s Ten Pin bowling alley in Finsbury Park and looks like it’ll be a must for any lovelorn singletons who are also into rock’n’roll or vintage (or both)!
These aren’t the official photos of course – they are ones I persuaded the nice photographer chap to take on my own camera. Look out for the real ones, which also star Cliff Gloom himself, in an events-listing publication near you soon.
And by the way, the dress I’m wearing is a new (vintage) one, and is to be the subject of a near-future post about my love of Vanish Oxi Action. An Ode to Oxi, if you will. Bet you can’t wait for that one, eh readers?
