Chester Bernard introspect: Farhad Humayun

This is the first in a series of videos I’m making for Pakistani clothing brand Chester Bernard, in which we talk to people who are at the top of their field about what makes them tick. In this one, Farhad Humayun plays drums and speaks about his life, art, work ethic and the loss of his father.

Musadiq Sanwal

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
