It had been very nice since their production.

That twangy guitar sound at the start of Whisper to a Scream is unforgetable!

It's just a bunch of dudes playing live, but I love the video for New Order's The Perfect Kiss because it gets so intense at the end. They were really concentrating on not Fing it up.

Thanks to the people who nominated 'The Maze' by my old duo The Toy Shop! It was only a promo video made for music shows at the time by our label Towerbell so was never released to TV.
