To the Dregs and Back Again






















Jian Wei and I went to see his ultimate man crush Wavves perform an intimate gig at Rough Trade East on hipster's paradise Brick Lane just two days before the little rascal pulled an immense diva-strop and cancelled his entire European tour. Click here for more. The miniature monster was demonstrating disinterest and withdrawal symptomatic of his impending meltdown when the pair of us lagged behind to say a friendly 'hallo' after the gig. Despite displeasing the little fellow immensely with our dry English humour and buffoon-like manipulation of manual cameras, we did manage to obtain a picture of Nathan with his drummer in what is now a Halcyon past following the latter's pouring of beer over the former's head midst on-stage chaos and total band disintergration.

For me, however, highlights of the day included the discovery of a black and white photobooth which produced four DIFFERENT images for £3 as opposed to standard passport machines which produce four identical images for £4 whilst rendering you aesthetically hideous plus the friendly cafe staff who crafted smily-faced images in the foam of our coffees.
