In exciting news, five ex students, playing in two separate bands, ended up recording for a French TV show, Le Petit Journal, last week. This show has a viewership of approximately one million people. The performances were aired on consecutive days ~ What are the chances?!
The students from the first act are ex Potato Potato members Patrick Hetherington, Jules Crommelin, & Louie Swain (with Annatole Serret who attended Byron High, from the amazing band Parcels). They are now living in Berlin and are performing at a large number of festivals throughout Europe this summer.
The second act is Mome, featuring Merryn Jean (AKA Merryn Boller, ex Potato Potato).
Merryn recorded the song almost two years ago whilst in France with a producer she met in her travels. The song has peaked at number eleven on the French iTunes charts, at that time, were above Coldplay and Beyonce to name a few! The song has a collective Internet viewing of 10 million hits and will be in a French Movie.
