A story to come in due course.
The first single I recorded with Bad for Lazarus in the winter of 2012. The video I wrote and directed hit number two in the NME’s most watched videos for that week, knocking Foo Fighters down to number three.
BURNT! Was the second single after Muddle. I had written this as a sweet farewell to the band after I had decided to leave, intending it for another project, but it ended up being heard and subsequently released; ironic considering the content was aimed at BFL and how much I had come to loath it’s existence.
It was only after I had written the video that I eventually told the band what it was about, and the characters in the video all had a significant relevance. It took a while for them to accept the idea, but finally relented.
This live version filmed by Jo Wells being one of the last shows I would play with the band…it has been widely noted that you could see the tension between everyone on stage at that show, which was probably true, but I think we all had a good time. Who knows?
…and some live stuff that was never released

Some things don’t last and love dies young, but there will always be memories of the good times and the bad…
