Let's Eat Grandma | Cellars | SLUGS | amindi k. fro$t

Sun, Mar 19 - 7:00 pm

Everything is as easy as falling out of a tree for twisted feral-pop duo Let's Eat Grandma.

Wildly imaginative multi-instrumentalists and talented putative pop stars Rosa, 16, and Jenny, 17, met when they were four years old and have been inseparable ever since. They only started playing music together four years ago and since then they've been declared "the best band on Earth" by Kiran Leonard, recorded a session for BBC 6 Music, been played on BBC Radio 1, received praise from Richard Dawson, been written about by the NME, the Guardian and the Quietus not to mention playing live shows at The Forge, Cafe Oto and Festival No.6. This June sees them release their debut album, I, Gemini on Transgressive... and they only sat their GCSEs last year.

But if you ask them if any of this seems strange, they just laugh as if it's the question itself that's odd. As thick as thieves, as sharp as knives, as like-minded as twins, Rosa and Jenny met in the reception class of their local infant school in Norwich (the pair still live less than half a mile from each other) and their first love was making tree houses. Jenny explains: "We both loved Enid Blyton's The Magic Faraway Tree and making a tree house is a symbol of being carefree when you're young. We made them out of old pieces of wood in our back gardens and that was how we became friends. It was literally all we would think about."

Rosa adds: "We got quite ambitious, making them with hammocks, rope-swings and a trapeze too. They got pretty big and extensive. We built one with a few different floors: a multi-storey treehouse. I used a hammer and nails that I took from my parents when they weren't looking. I actually fell out of the treehouse once and cut my arm open. I've still got a scar there now."

The pair of friends are aware that these wild constructions also symbolise their friendship, their creativity and a wish to escape into a private world away from everyone else; desires that are all now expressed thro
