”A while ago I came across a story about a group of unemployed musicians from Cape Town who called themselves the Plaster Cast. They had released a charity single in response to Band Aid’s iconic ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’. Titled ‘Yes We Do’, Plaster Cast’s single was produced by singer-songwriter Boomtown Gundane. Proceeds from its sale were ‘donated to British schools to fund instruction in discipline, literacy, and contraception’. I sought to get in touch with this Boomtown Gundane, only to find out later that he does not exist: the story was a piece of fake news, originally published by the Onion-esque, now-defunct, satirical news website Hayibo, and had subsequently been re-posted as fact on several websites and blogs.
In Palazzo Gundane (homage to the myth-maker who fell to earth) I pay tribute to the fictional musician, and imagine the world he inhabits.”
