NEW! out ON March 9th


In 2014 I lived in a derelict childrens home at 50 Abbey Wood Rd. It was leaky and abandoned ...nobody had lived in it for 15 years.  I showered under a hose and I cooked with a camping stove. I slept on a bed I made from warehouse pallets...with a big stick waiting for the next break-in. It was cold but it was almost free. 

I recorded these tales in and about those days in its empty rooms.
