“John Mather from the band appeared, unfortunately, on Channel 4 documentary series '24 Hours in A&E'(10/7/2013).He is living in a homeless hostel in South London, and struggling with alcohol addiction. He had cut his head open in a fall. He mentioned being from Bury in the interview, and visiting the Electric Circus, this being an eye opener for him as far as music was concerned. He also mentioned this single, and it being played a couple of times on John Peel's show.”
