Rebecca Miller photographed Natalie and Elliot Bergman, the duo at the heart of American rockers Wild Belle, for The Untitled Magazine. They were celebrating the release of their second album for Columbia, ‘Dreamland’. Brother and sister, they are definite about the importance of their relationship to the music. ‘Nothing gets between blood. We’re unbreakable. We have a bond that you can’t fuck up.’ said Natalie.
Here’s some of what The Untitled Magazine said about the band. ‘Growing up in a musical household in Chicago, a city known for its Bluesy roots, it was only natural for siblings Natalie and Elliot Bergman to form a band together. Known as Wild Belle, the duo’s signature style combines Elliot’s penchant for reggae rhythms and tropical sounds with Natalie’s raw vocals and rockstar swagger. Both musicians play instruments and collaborate on songwriting but it was Natalie’s life that provided the basis for their second full-length album, Dreamland. Reeling from the end of a romantic relationship, she packed up her bags and drove across country, settling in Venice, California. There she penned most of the album which proves to be a slightly darker follow-up to the band’s catchy debut, Isles.’

In a moment of good taste The Sun chose this picture of Margaret Thatcher for the cover of their pull out Maggie Memorial 24 page tribute yesterday. It was taken just before the election in 1987 by Paul Rider. “It was one of the strangest afternoons of my life,” Paul said ” not least because I was working for Smash Hits, a magazine whose readers had an average age of fourteen. But some one had decided that it was a good idea for Mrs T to spend an hour and a half of her busy time doing an interview and pictures for us! I thought it was bizarre but she took it completely seriously. Only when asked to wear some headphones did she politely demur, saying it would mess up her hair.”
Shoot attempts to maintain political balance at all times, so here is another picture by Paul from around the same period showing left wing heroes Red Ken Livingstone (left) and Arthur Scargill together with Hank Wangford, a country and western singer who was also a gynecologist. They are at an anti-Thatcher pro GLC rally presumably in Movember 1986.
Starring Matt Smith and his latest companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman, Ray captured the duo for a hectic day at one of the final shoots in the famous B609 photographic studio deep in the basement of BBC TV Centre.
“It was actually a really exciting way to work, that of being put on the spot and having to represent the concept and dynamic for each episode from little strands of information regarding each of the story lines.
Refreshingly different from the way that most shoots are done” – Ray Burmiston
