May 24. Birmingham
We arrive to automobile-loving Moseley. Before the show, Dorian and Sef busk in the square to promote the night’s show at The Bull’s Head (opening is Pete_Prescription AKA Dorian Wood UK!). Everyone is driving a car so it’s quite a challenge, but we are approached by friendly meth-heads who ask us for money and gangsta kids who ask for a beat.
Sef: What a cool teardrop tattoo… Maybe I should get one.
Dorian: Do you know what that means?
Sef: Um… no.
Dorian: It means you killed someone.
Sef: I should definitely get one!
Nathaniel leaves us for one gig, he is flying to Ukraine for a live performance of HOPE, his collaboration with artist Lara Baladi in the Kiev Biennale. A heart-breaking symphony with donkey cries, a string ensemble and soprano voices. We miss him but can’t wait to hear it.
