It's like this: You come home from CRACK! and you're happy. A little bit like you're still on CRACK! mentally. This happiness lasts for a few weeks sometimes. It's not that you want to go back but more like you never really left the Forte. The rest of the year you do what you can to make the rest of the world a better place. Around December usually, you start thinking about going back. A feeling that gets more intense as June gets closer. You start to plan for the next one, try to think of a bigger, better contribution. You want to return to the family, return home. CRACK! is the real world, the rest is just inbetween.

Mattias Elftorp
The destructive character sees nothing permanent. But for this very reason he sees ways everywhere. Where others encounter walls or mountains, there, too, he sees a way. But because he sees a way everywhere, he has to clear things from it everywhere. Not always by brute force; sometimes by the most refined. Because he sees ways everywhere, he always stands at a crossroads.
Walter Benjamin

Quando il Sud-Est dell'Asia chiama, il Sud-Esti di Roma, aka Pigneto, risponde senza esitare. E all'altro capo del telefono ci sono i Tandoorello, il gruppo preferiti dai bangla degli off licence de' noantri, quelli dove si comprano le Peroni di sgamo nelle ore piccole. Acclamatissimi a seguito del loro video "British Girsl", dove si affronta la problematica sociale britannica delle gravidanze indesiderate ed extra matrimoniali causate dal fascino irresistibile dei bangla boy anglosassoni, tornano dal vivo dopo un periodo di meritato riposo. "The Future of England is Bangladesh", forse anche quello di Roma.
