Before the show at Zebra Festival, Chengdu China, May 2011.

We’d flown in from Beijing, after a slot on the Midi Festival main stage, in the early hours of the morning before the Zebra Fest show. It felt like days – but it was 24 hours later. I don’t think we slept – too much adrenaline. We were all coming down with something too. A combination of fatigue and not being used to the smokey air. The Zebra Festival show was great all the same, around 30 thousand people at the main stage.

Fires out.
