Thea Gilmore - Angels In The Abattoir Update (July 2010)

An interesting new song from Thea this month, a cover of How Little We Know from the 1944 film To Have And Have Not, originally sung by Lauren Bacall in the film. This is released as the winning entry in the Song Lottery in which us Angels suggested songs for Thea to record. Thea, who didn't know the song before, describes it a 'a truly beautiful piece of writing' with 'a complex melody that is a total bugger to learn'. A fantastic result all round and great support as always from 'musical superhero' Nigel Stonier who plays the melodica on the song.

So, as Angels In The Abattoir enters its second year (yes I have resubscribed), we look forward to more wonderful songs, gigs and the new album. Thanks Thea. x
