I’M NOT FROM LONDON
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
“Officially started in 2011, but organising events and happenings way before that, I’m Not From London want to do it all. With more tentacles than a multi limbed mutant octopus, I’m Not From London are a record label, a film making outfit, an events promotion organisation and much, much, much, much more.”
