Lily Allen to Duet With Crystal Swing
Yes, you really did read that correctly!
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 17 May 2010
Kevin Allen, the brains behind the Flat Lake Literary & Arts Festival 2010, has confirmed that his niece Lily will be dueting with Crystal Swing at the multimedia event.
According to Kevin: "Someone who’s coming in just to see Lily Allen is barking up the wrong tree. Lily’s going to be doing a number with Crystal Swing for a bit of a laugh."
While Kevin accepts that booking a band like Crystal Swing can be quite risky it doesn't faze him: "They’re just fantastic, cheesy kitsch. It seems that they’ve hit a certain zeitgeist with post-crash sentimentalism." Indeed.
For more on the Flat Lake Festival and Crystal Swing, make sure you pick up the next issue of Hot Press, out this Thursday, May 20.

‘Smile’ was a nice tune, but ‘LDN’ has always been the real jewel in young Lily’s crown, an infectious, joyous and utterly thrilling pop song that is impossible to resist (how could you not love the "Tesco/al fresco" couplet?) You do have to wonder if they haven’t missed the summer boat by re-releasing this so late in the year, although you suspect that this is all part of a plan to have a crack at the Christmas number one slot with ‘Littlest Things’.

Fame has come remarkably quickly for Lily Allen, with her sensational debut album Alright, Still hitting the No.1 spot in the week of its release. But, with babysitting for Bez on her CV, anything is a breeze – and the bolshie young singer is taking it all in her stride. Plus, having lived in Ireland for a number of years, she has more than a few interesting tales to tell. Just don’t ask her about Bob Geldof...
