I was going to the accreditation people, and they're asking 'Who are you, what's your act?'
I say, well, I'm the mystery act.
'Ok, so what's your name?'
I give them my name, and then they go 'No, I'm afraid you're not on the list…'
Well, that's because I'm the mystery act.
'But how do we know it's you?'"
Recorded by Marc Broer at Le Guess Who? 2017 on Saturday, 11 November. Recordings made in cooperation with VPRO / Vrije Geluiden.
