Obligatory Mark E Smith Story: My Life Story were supposed to support Orange Juice in some beautiful town in France (Renne?)in 1993 or 94 (if someone can rememb...er the date and the venue please let me know). We arrived and were told that the band had cancelled and that we’d be supporting The Fall instead. We played our set and went down better than we had expected. Brix was still in the band then and we had a great time hanging out with her, she was a doll. When the Fall were due to perform, Mark didn’t want to go on and kept the crowd waiting for what seemed like an hour or so. In the end MLS manager Anthony Hill and I basically muscled him onto the stage holding him between us and dragging him on. Anthony quickly vanished leaving me and Mark standing under a spotlight, centre stage. The French fans we’re shouting: 'duet duet duet'! They genuinely believed that this was a planned event, Ha, imagine!
The other memory of that night, is Brix repeatedly kicking a group of salivating french boys square in the face with knee high patent leather boots as they gathered right in-front of her monitor. Being french boys, they kept going back for more.

RIP MES and when music was raw, fun and interesting.

Recorded on location at RAF Cardington , home to the magnificent men and their flying machines. The concept of the video was to create a Liza Minelli Cabaret moment with Jake's hands working light graces through the smoke.. but the hangar was so big, we ran out of smoke! Our favourite bit is Danny's lonesome shot on the grandest of pianos with this huge gantry behind him, it's so incongruous.
