All The Lights Get Dimmer When You Go

If you really want to get a sense of what Switzerland is all about this story pretty much sums it up: A local Swiss person was telling me that long ago the city of Basel wanted to start collecting art as a city investment. After a public vote it was decided that the town would collectively buy a Picasso. Pablo Picasso was so enamored with the idea of a town buying art he ended up donating a bunch of pieces to the town in addition to the one they were purchasing from him! I think this feeling of artistic appreciation has really carried on to the next generation and can be seen in the evident passion for music & art that is palpable throughout the country! Here is a recording of the last (improvised) song from the live show of Brent Green's short films we performed in Zurich Switzerland to a very warm and loving crowd at El Lokal! Hope you like it!
