Tell us about Help Me Jones
I met Kostia in Estonia. We were there for a video-art workshop. We became friends. We made one very strange performance together - Kostia made the music and I - the video-art. It was kind of cool working together. But I went back in Bulgaria and Kostia -  in Kazahstan. One day Kostia called me on the phone to tell that he plans to came in Bulgarian. The iconomical situatian In Kazahstan isn`t very good, you know. So he needed to escape. The situatian in Bulgaria isn`t so good either. Maybe now we need a new destination to escape!

What about the music?
Kostia makes music from a long time ago. I can sing. I was the only one in school who could sing Bethoven. One day me and Kostia, we just made a song. Not for a purpose. Just for fun. The name came whith a joke too. We were thinking  about the name and I sad "help me. help me..." Kostia sad "Jones" ... Kostia is crazy about disco music. I`m a huge new wave fan - that`s how we mad our style - dis co-new wave

Who makes your videos?
Friends. For free. The director of Rage of Mine is friend of ours. Her name is Maria Arangelova. She heard some a couple of songs and she chose this one. The only thing she wanded for the video was the girl - Nevena. In fact, we have our third video ready. We are planning to make the forth, fifth and sith video...

You whrite Nasecomix lirycs. Is there a song lirycs you wanted to keep for yourself?
Once I gave something to Rony, that I couldn`t get out of my mind. So I asked her to give it bvack to me, haha...

What`s next for Help Me Jones and for you?
Same things -  theatre, videos, festivals and live performances...
