Rustic is a big band at the moment. They won the top title in the Global Battle of the Bands for China, just held in Hong Kong.
This is Ricky, the bassist. He is from Shijiazhuang, Hebei. Just before he took this photo, Ricky was pissing on the hutong wall. He was on his way to getting a tattoo of his girlfriend’s face put on his back. He describes her as “rich”. He himself lives with four others in a flat in Tongzhou, where each roommate pays RMB 400.
