Dear Q, recently my good friend Hanna asked me what I’d like for my birthday and I said the new Girl Ray album, having just finished reading your great feature about the North London trio in the latest issue. So I was surprised to see on opening my present on my birthday that she’d mistakenly got me the new record by South London quartet Goat Girl instead. Anyway, it didn’t matter in the end because she then went out and bought me the Girl Ray record too. So now I’m doubly made-up – two brilliant albums for the price of one! So, thank you Q and Hanna for being my friends. Jill Crowthers, via Q Mail
