John Deere Heaven this Christmas

As 2 little girls growing up on a farm in Norfolk, my sister and I were de gendered and given boys names. George and Fred, by the farm men.I dreamt of being a farmer until clothes became such fun. So... I can appreciate the excitement of this years Christmas with Barnaby. Tres speciale. #Norfolk #Farmers #Christmas #Lucky

Luscious Local Talent AKA Movements

Local Boys 'Movements' have just launched their first album and what a talent they are. 

 Vintage Deli were lucky enough to get them involved in a mini festival bash we put on in the summer.  Movements decided this was to be the venue for their video.  We feel totally honoured to have been a part of it. Plus....what better way to find out all the goss, after a few bevys in a magical setting 
 Our very own Josie Heard gets inquisitive with Sam & Boff! 

TWEET THEM @Movements_UK



1)   How did the band come together?

Sam - We were asked to do the KLFM life sessions last year as our cover band Whole Lotta Hair but we thought - actually lets do some original stuff. I’ve been writing music for years and everything I write is acoustic so we decided to make an acoustic band.

2)   What has been your fav gig of the summer?

Katy of Vintage Deli’s party! It was sick and the fact that we were doing the music video at the same time was cool.

3.)  And fav gig of all time?

Boff - At the Battle of the Bands final there was a great vibe.

Sam - There was one at The Maids Head in Kings Lynn where everyone was singing along.

4.) Who do you write your music for and what inspires you?

I write it all for me, they are all my problems put into music. If you listen to all the lyric they are depressing as hell. I am inspired by life events, the songs are all about quite significant things in my life. There is a song on there called Dirge which is a song for the dead and it is about my granddad passing away. The last song is about my argument with religion.

Boff - Girls, lots of girls.

5.) Have you got any pre-performance rituals?

Sam - I always take my shoes off, every time. Even if I am doing karaoke or in the studio I take my shoes off!

Boff - Not really, I just do a few warm ups and that is about it.

6.) Who has the worst bad habit and what is it?

Sam - I moan at everybody all the time about getting things right.

Boff - He is a bit of a perfectionist.

7.)Who are you currently ‘overplaying’?

Boff - I am currently overplaying The Reign of Kindo.

8.) Which artist(s) - past or present - most heavily inspires your music?

Sam - It is bit like City and Color I suppose.

Boff - We all listen to different music. If you look at Archie, he listed to Folk and that kind of thing, Joe is into stuff like Bad Company.

9.) Did you always want a career in music?

Both - YES!!

10.) What inspired the name of the band?

My idea was based around the movement in a piece of orchestral music.

11.) Tell me about the new album?

Sam - Its called Floating Circus which is track 7 on the album and the first song I wrote for the band so it made sense for it to be the name of the album.

Boff - There are 14 tracks in total. It is amazing!

12.) What is your fav track on the new album?

Sam - Dirge.

Boff - Yeah, I’d have to say Dirge. It is track 11.

13) Why is that your favorite track?

Sam - for me it is a really personal song, I wrote it about my granddad and has the most heart in it out of the songs. It’s epic as hell.

Boff - For me it is just the best put together song. It all flows. It would be either Dirge or Judgement for me. Judgement is the most different song on the album.

14.) Any other passions besides music?

Not really, no.

15.) Have you any advice for aspiring musicians?

Boff - If you want a nice house and a really comfortable lifestyle - don’t become a musician.

16.) How long has the band been together?

Sam - Nearly a year. Officially I started if on my birthday - 23rd November.

17.) How long did it take you to record the album and did you face any challenges on the way?

Sam - Well we recorded it technically in 5 or 6 days but the studio we were using closed and we had to scrap everything and start again. We had to take all the audio files and redo the whole thing in Boff’s bedroom. So all the mixing and the mastering, programming and well everything, was done at Boff’s home.

Boff - All in all we were working on it for 6 to 7 months.

19.) What genre would you place your music into?

Boff - I think it is a reflection of all out different styles. Sam wrote the entire album, all of the songs and had an idea of how he wanted them to sound. Everyone had their input and you can tell by all of our parts our musical individuality.

Sam - I think what we do next will be a better reflection of us as a band. All of our new stuff we are writing together.

20.) Do you have any style icons?

Sam - My mum once told me that she thought it was endearing that I didnt care what I wear. I didn’t intend to do that,it just happened. When I was at college I used to wear flip flops, socks, flowery shorts, a massive jumper and had bleach blonde hair. I had no fashion sense then and I guess i never really have.

Boff - Will Smith. Everytime - Will Smith.

22.) Have you got a staple item of clothing?

Sam - My necklace - I always wear it. I have a thing about wings.

Boff - My long-johns - especially at this time of year.

23.) Sam - I know you have been involved in a few Vintage Deli would you describe working with the Vintage Deli team?

It is always fun. I always feel like I am really important and really looked after.

Autumn/Winter Wearable Catwalk Trends from @VintageDeli

11 handpicked items from Vintage Deli to bring you into Autumn/Winter

From oversized geometrics to 70s psychedelic, prints are going to be hotter than ever this season, chunky knits with a graphic statement is a personal must have. Fashion week saw the return of leopard, snake and zebra prints on the runway so expect to see spots and stripes all over the high street once again.

Leather is another must have for this Autumn/Winter. Leather skirts and leather jackets are both great staple items for any wardrobe. We've got gorgeous leather jackets from the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, a gorgeous studded cropped jacket (ABOVE) & masses more one off Leather treats. If you aren’t feeling quite that bold you can start with leather accessories or detailing.

With a new season comes a new colour pallet. Had enough of black? Burgundy is heading this way and taking over as the hottest colour Autumn/Winter. Other shades being splashed all over the catwalk are purple, olive green and black teamed with blue.

Although the oversized coat is dominating the Autumn/Winter runway this season is all about emphasizing those curves, not hiding them. The peplum trend is on full swing and will carry you straight through to Autumn. By all means, envelope yourself in a soft dressing gown-esque coat a la vintage but don’t put away those statement belts - this season’s way of getting elegantly waisted.  

Another big trend on the runway this Autumn/Winter is western. Although not always a great hit with fashionistas, shirts with a hint of cowboy, embroidered bombers with cropped denim and even cowboy hats will play a significant role in the new fashion season. You can always just rock it with shoes!

Lots of Love,

Jubilee Shoot with Rebel Heart

Jubilee Shoot with Vintage Deli & Rebel Heart Photography

A Taste of Britain Jubilee Shoot 2012
True English Style – after a week of heatwave we endeavored to have our shoot on the first forcast of rain for over a month! Little did we know that was set to stay. But, we dodged the rainfall & had a few spare moments where the sun came out. With the wonderful bunch of people we had, we were guaranteed to have a successful day. Whatever the Weather!
Set in the Royal Wolferton Train Station where the queen was once collected from her journeys up to the Sandringham Estate. It couldn’t have been a more apt.
Here’s a little taster into our day
