NAME, AGE, LOCKDOWN LOCATION: October, 24, East London.
LOCKDOWN 2.0 FEELS LIKE... 16 hour days, 11-3, nocturnal ennui, over and over, big creative energy and no energy at all.
A DAY IN LOCKDOWN LOOKS LIKE… The sun barely rising before it has set again, the moon in my window all big and yellow, not many passerby’s in the street these days, my four white walls and Netflix.
MOST TIME SPENT DOING… Sitting at my desk, guitar in one hand, other hand on the keys, writing, writing and more writing between mouthfuls of coffee or wine or sometimes both.
THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS TIME RIGHT NOW... AND A HOPEFUL STATEMENT FOR THE FUTURE… The animalistic side of me quite likes the hibernation this winter, the human side misses dancing. The one thing that keeps me going is how good the raves will be when this is all over. Nothing lasts forever, everything is transient.
LOCKDOWN NOSTALGIA... Good outfits at the club - sweating, aching legs, and out of breath from dancing. Kisses and spliffs with friends. House parties!
AFTER LOCKDOWN YOU’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO... THE MOST… A good Sichuan meal in Chinatown, xmas turkey and travelling again.
A CONSTANT LOCKDOWN FEELING… “What time is it?”.
LAST THING YOU READ IN LOCKDOWN… Re-reading Crash by JG Ballard.
YOUR ULTIMATE SUPPORT BUBBLE… Ma and Pa on FaceTime from New Zealand.
ONE UPSIDE OF LOCKDOWN... More time for music making and music listening! Big sleep-ins and staying up all night thinking and watching the moon.
LOCKDOWN AS A SONG TITLE… White Awakening - Les Rallies Dénudés.
LAST SONG PLAYING... Drug Song - Dave Bixby.
THE PANDEMIC TAUGHT ME… I really love being alone.
YOU HAVE OUR FULL ATTENTION...SOMETHING YOU JUST REALLY WANT TO SAY... I released an EP last week :) It’s called Dogs and Gods. Do give It a listen.
LOCKDOWN F-WORD... Farcical.
