We performed an improvised fury of a set, perhaps a half hour in length, as we necessarily embraced narrative opportunities bequeathed us in the wake of Sickboy's unfortunate departure. On "Mothers Over Silverpoint" we collaborated with Canadian/French duo .cut; lovely gents. I was reintroduced to Marie Claire, the Lyon-based performance artist with whom we shared a bill at the now-dessicated Pez Ner venue. She danced her brains out, then told us of recent works and a certain repositioning of the tricolor...

Met Manu from Savage Land! He set up a stall at Sonic and of course we spoke late into the evening. He is with us now at the hotel; what he has done for Nandor Nevai in particular must not be underestimated. A sterling fellow...
