I first heard Helen Love in session on Mark and Lard's radio show about eleven years ago. Mark and Lard were on quite late at night. So I used to record their show even though I was listening to it. Just in case I fell asleep.
The first thing I did the morning after Helen Love were on was to fast forward through the tape to find the session. Helen Love were so good I thought I must have dreamed them.
After I found out that the session was indeed real I played it over and over. It was before the internet. My local record shop didn't stock Helen Love records. So I only had that session to listen too whilst waiting for the albums. They took ages to arrive.
Whilst waiting for those albums I taped the only three songs that I had over and over on to the same tape. As a sort of make shift album so I could walk the entire way to school listening to Helen Love on my walkman without having to fidget around with the rewind button.
I like Helen Love a lot.
