This improvisation set of 36.50 minutes of music created with Adam Franklin ( Swervedriver ) on guitar and Sarah Gill on electric cello and Sukie Smith vocals and spoken word was improvised in response to a
3 night run of shows in collaboration with John Lee Bird in the spectacular Grand Ballroom upstairs at the Trafalgar Tavern , Greenwich. The 365 artworks by John Lee Bird were first exhibited in Mexico City in January; accompanied by special soundtrack performances from Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu) and Suitman Jungle.The exhibition continues later in the year and journies to LA where the audio of the Madam sets will accompany the work.This piece is specifically about the struggle Sukie witnessed John Lee Bird deal with as he extricated himself from a dangerous and violent relationship .
