THANKS FOR CANCELLING YOUR SHOW AND RUINING MY YEAR DAMON ALBARN! :( :( :( :(
I am Oliver Tate.
Over three years James Mollison photographed fans outside different concerts for his project The Disciples. ”As I photographed the project I began to see how the concerts became events for people to come together with surrogate ‘families’, a chance to relive their youth or try and be part of a scene that happened before they were born.”
- The Cure
I saw The Cure when I was visiting Berlin years ago. I knew which train to catch but not where to go once I got off the train. But I trusted that I’d know Cure fans when I saw them, and I’d be able to follow them to the arena. I was right.
Attending cultural events is one way of creating and exploring community and personal identity. Sounds like someone’s PhD!
Hold still right before we crash
Cause we both know how this ends
Our clock ticks till it breaks your glass
And I drown in you again
