But now, my droogs, I will fast forward to the weepy part of the story, when, in November 2002, after my last phonecall to the agent, I reluctantly filed away 600 pages of beloved material which I had come to accept would never be seen. I felt I had arrived at a dead end, with material too elaborate to see the light of day, particularly from an unknown director with only a few music videos under his belt, and a director with an increasing preference for anthropology and geography over characterization.

I should re-iterate at this stage that this section is in no way intended as a glorification of my own work which has not yet found a platform. I circulate almost entirely amongst artists and many of them have most of their work on the shelf most of the time, or 'in development'.

I decided to retrace my steps and I turned again to the context from which the 'White Monkey' world had originated - promotional imagery for independent electronic music.
