Chiswick - stick to it!

Dada is very nice shop filled to the brim with cds/films/vinyl and other bits and bobs, the staff are kind and the windows are covered with a lovely red sticker pattern so when sun pours in, red shapes are reflected around the shop

if you find yourself in Chiswick, make a pitstop!

the nearest tube stop is Chiswick Park (district line)

and down the road, headed towards Hammersmith is another golden find....Outsider Tart!

It's a wonderful bakery/cafe/artspace run by two american friends that love baking - - - go go go!

I was just walking into the store on Chiswick High Street and was met by the sound of your beautiful voice. Dreamy and haunting.
The friendly store clerk told me about Alessi's Ark and I just had to pick up the CD. I have been playing it for the last couple of hours and love every song on it.
Thank you!
Looking forward to hearing more and hopefully seeing you live one of these days.

Hi Alessi

I've got excellent news! Outsider Tart have agreed to join the OxBush collective and have agreed to contribute to the OxBush raffle! I'm not sure if you're aware but if the OxBush line-up wasn’t enough to entice folk to buy a ticket to the gig, we would like to announce that every ticket bought will come bundled with a bonus ticket for our epic raffle, rife with a medley of excellent prizes to be won. The FIRST PRIZE being three, yes three Disney day passes at the Disney resort of your choice. And now some delicious treats from Outsider Tart!
