It’s a sunny afternoon in the middle of September and it’s just our luck that Hammer is locked away in a disused warehouse in north London.But we can’t really complain we’re in very good company.
You might think you’re seeing the World, but you’re not really.“But, I’m going to have a look anyway.” She drags her index finger down the page until she finds her star sign. “Let’s see what the stars have in store for me: ‘The last few months have been pretty traumatic for you. ‘You’re going to have an uncomfortable experience when Mars comes into contact with Uranus’, in the case of Cristina and her band, theirs couldn’t be more apt.There have been a lot of dramatic changes in your life.
