Some of you may know this already but to most I’m sure this comes as a big surprise….
Yes, the rumours are true, Philippa B is leaving the flock to pursue full-time career in film. As I’m sure you all know, she is very talented in this area, having made all our music videos… and some other nifty ones too.
‘Phil-the-Shirt Bloomers’ has been with us since the very, very beginning, back when it was just Mish (who had a shaved head back then), writing strange songs together in student digs and shyly performing in dives all over Brighton. She has helped create the image of this band, done all our beautiful artwork and photos, as well as tirelessly bashed the drums. She will be missed terribly!
However… although this is heart-breaking, it does mean that she now has more time to help us make more music videos, so we will still be seeing her on many Birdeatsbaby photo shoots, videos and general drunken get-togethers!
In tribute to her leaving, we’ve selected some of the best (and worst) pictures from her time with us. Enjoy. And cry a little. We did.
You can stay in touch with Philippa by checking her website and blog here… http://www.philippabloomfield.com/

Looking classy on the set of ‘Hang Myself’ video shoot
Philippa and Mish sample twinkies in America with horrifying results! YUK.
Her dedication for selling merch knew no bounds…
