I knew that pete and jonny were in the fun fair. I couldn't quite make them out though. There were those big old metal telescopes that you pay a euro to look through - what a disappointment. [caption id="attachment_372" align="alignleft" width="640" caption="Like being in a drug induced dream that could turn really nasty at any moment"][/caption] Time spent in this fair was quite spellbinding. Pete and Jonny got so lost they almost missed sound check. It was well big isn't it. This is me at the fair. A photograph probably taken by jonny on my own camera. Quite rare that someone actually gets a shot in focus. Well done. I thought I'd fallen out of love with fun fairs after the repeated childhood exposure of Caters Steam Fair which was quite disturbing. But this was all lights and goodness with lots of artisan sweet things and traditional frishbrokten or something (thanks ellie) [caption id="attachment_368" align="alignright" width="270" caption="brief nostalgia prompted affection"][/caption] A bizzare backdrop to the fair was this enormous wartime bunker. (someone -it might have been me- said this was Hitler's underground bunker but this is not confirmed) "Oh Tom, look at the architecture!" shouts Pete. It's a genuinely brutal and ominous building. I think last time we were in Hamburg we did a radio interview inside it. Hazy memories. [caption id="attachment_370" align="aligncenter" width="375" caption="BRUTAL"][/caption]
