About London Below
Chester, United Kingdom
London Below is basically zpink, drafting in friends and talented people he's found on the web
Zpink is an elderly(approximately 400 years old) Swedish gentleman, currently residing in London. He grew up on metal and Sisters and likes to make a lot of noise.
The story so far: Born in Stockholm, or Birka as some people still knew it as, he from an early age developed an interest in music. The main inspiration being an overseas gentleman named Vincent Furnier and a quartet of men in strange clothes and makeup hailing from the same shores. Granted his highest wish, on his 12th birthday he became the proud owner of a 6-stringed candy-red double-cut-away lute of the same model as the influential Tony from Birmingham. Joining forces with his next-door neighbour and friend, who owned a 4-stringed lute, he set up his first show. Neither of the two young lads had any talent nor clue about how to play their instruments. The show was saved (or so they thought) by the fact that the friend could mimic the 4-string lute player amongst the aforementioned quartet's facial expressions.
Before reaching his teens he was migrated north, due to family decision. In the new school he soon became part of a short-lived band. Swapping his 6-string to a 4-string he got involved in learning a few songs by Nazareth and other contemporary heroes. Still lacking talent, he soon realised that a life of partying and passively enjoying music was so much easier.
Seasons passed, empires rose and fell and the 4 strings once again became 6. Life continued and the lute was left in peace.
A number of years after migrating to a small island of the coast of Europe, he decided to start making some new noise. The lutes, both 4 and 6 stringed ones, are now run through some more advanced machinery and there is also an organ present. Zpink still lacks talent.
The strange noises which often sounds like if from a distant past, are now created in the vaults of London Below.
