I'm sitting at home, picking out a notebook for size (something i actually do very frequently in real life), and this completely mundane operation is taking me ages. Meanswhile i'm aware there's another music night going on elsewhere, but because i'm convinced the gig will be really silly, i am really slow to get up and go to the gig with Simon, until its much later.
Me and Simon finally arrive at the venue of "Foot Jam". it consists of a long corridor like Alleybar with a stage concealed from the front entrance at the very back of the venue. the music sounds very mundane but i am surprised to see that the musicians are all FREAKS - and i mean deformed and physically malformed people. dwarfs and deformed folk with growths from their bodies.
I arrive only in time to see the last act. there is a woman with a mushroom-like growth over her head and she is singing with a strange noise that doesn't come out of her mouth but from the hollow space of the fleshy mushroom cap on her head. She never opens her mouth but makes this unearthly humming tone, a bit like a singing bowl meets a Tuvan throat singer. Besides the mushroom cap, she has asian features and an otherwise normal looking face.
After the night, we go outside the venue for a smoke. lots of malay punks are hanging around, and the blue dawn sky looms above me, which tells me that it must be quite an advanced hour in the night. Out of the corner of my eye I notice Saito sitting in a corner somewhere behind where i have sat on the ground. sitting on the gravel pavement and really bored, i attempt to roll a bottlecap in the direction of the bar again. it rolls to the front of the building next to the bar.
