Today is Halloween, and the Darwin Deez brigade are unceremoniously celebrating the holiday, uncostumed, at a Holiday Inn in Folkstone, in preparation for the Eurotunnel in the morning. Fortunately, last night in Sheffield, some fans brought black makeup and painted cat noses and whiskers on Cole and I. Additionally, Cole wore a skull mask for a minute or two during the afternoon. It will have to suffice. On the other hand, if you consider Darwin’s headbanded curls, Cole’s androgynous pink hatted presence, my sequins and short shorts, and Greg’s pancho, one could argue that every day is a dressup Halloween day for Darwin Deez, so maybe it’s not so bad to take the night off.
Greg’s girlfriend, Tess, flew in from Brooklyn and linked up with us at Heathrow today. She is gorging the band’s many sweet tooths on delicious homemade blondies.
This morning, Darwin filmed an impromptu water commercial during Sheffield brekkie, for your entertainment.
