Beat magazine spoke with Ladyhawke’s Pip Brown, who revealed how she almost died at the age of 10 after contracting a rare disease that can only be contracted through seagulls. “It was so weird,” Pip explained. “My mum was like ‘It could only happen to you.’ I was at a beach in New Zealand and I think I had a sore or something on my face and I remember lying on this trampoline covered in bird sh**. I had to go to hospital for while, it was really awful, I nearly went into a coma, I had to be on a drip and then I had a reaction to the drip because I was allergic to the penicillin.”
