The mystery of London’s pyramid hat man

Here’s a riddle for you:

Q. What do you call a man with a metal pyramid on his head?
A. Dominic, apparently.

That answer probably isn’t the clever pun you were expecting. But it is the truth. Now you’re wondering which man is wearing a pyramid on his head. Let me show you. It’s this man:

Pyramid Hat Man wearing his hat

I spotted him yesterday in the Leicester Square Pret A Manger, sketching in a notebook.

And how do I know he’s called Dominic? I’ll get to that…

This is why I’m deaf and blind


CONTAINS STROBING

I don’t know what you did at Christmas this year and you could argue – quite rightly – that it’s none of my business. But here’s what I did: I cut together a load of video footage I’d shot of great bands throughout 2007.

What I did next was completely fail to publish it on this website. Never mind though – I’ve done it now. So pull up a chair, sit on it, and endure 15 minutes of pure actual video.

Bands featured include: Operation Wolf, Lardpony, Yeborobo, BARR, Shimmy Rivers And And Canal, Les Savy Fav, Hundreds, Tens & Units, The Chap, Hands on Heads, Tea With The Queen, cLOUDDEAD, Mika Miko, Dananananaykroyd, DJ Scotch egg, Liars, Everybody Is Going To Die, Heseltine and Gay Against You. I hope you find something to your liking.

All peformances were in London, apart from cLOUDDEAD and Les Savy Fav at All Tomorrow’s Parties.
