I found these pictures in an slim folder labeled “They Will Come 2008”. Nick took them in July 2008, in and around the small community of Darkford in northern England. The images are some kind of documentation of a music festival and a break-in at a derelict mine. Aside from the pictures, there are also eight microcassettes from Nick’s dictation machine full of interview fragments. There is also the “Red Record”, which appears to be an early seventies bootleg compiled from various open air concerts.
"The Popov Brothers and the song “Hey My Friend (What’s Going On)” was one of the records in Nick’s black crate that started this series. There are other unusual things still further back in that crate, but there is a certain matter of scale that makes “Hey My Friend” interesting. It’s not just one forgotten song (and it is sort of forgettable). It’s two forgotten brothers, three forgotten minutes and an entire forgotten country."
