London: February 2007. The first day of the Chinese New Year and a not so casual encounter with three-fourths of the famed band “Shostakovich’s Nightmare”. Present at the Lemon Tree Pub – a stone’s throw away from all the hubbub of Chinatown (and drinking long enough to miss the fireworks)… Job, Ton, Jack and Gringo (sounds cooler that way: actually from L to R Ton, Gringo, Jack and Job). Missing from the picture is guitarist Matthew Cuschieri who had no valid excuse to be in London that day.
