After crossing paths at the battle cruiser with Rose on Well Street, E9 – a local, Hackney native girl, and the youngest bee enthusiast I’d ever come across. Largely due to the crises among inner city bee’s if you remember the sensational news a few years back, I believe….

Anyway, it was after the Moshiko Koshino show last Friday that I found myself at said battle cruiser and after chat we got onto the subject of a project she’s perusing to help rebalance the population of bee’s in her local and native community of Hackney. And, after mentioning that a bee keeper would be coming down to check on the hive the following Monday – which happened to be located on the roof of the boozer; otherwise known as ‘The Gun’ – I took the opportunity to experience the role of an inner city bee keeper, and the process of making REAL natural honey; none’ah that processed Supermarket bollocks…

Unfortunately, on this occasion I didn’t get to interview Rose fully – as I wanted to know more about her experiences growing up in Hackney and, as an 18 year old, how she viewed youth culture, her community and the realms Urban music that I deal in. So that’ll have to wait.
