There were quite a few false starts on this one. First we tried filming something in the room of the East End pub where the great train robbery was planned (don't ask why). Unfortunately we didn't light it enough & so ended up with mostly black film. I then shot some stuff of my girlfriend of the time but then split up with her and became too depressed to use it... hmmm. We were now in a difficult position as I had spent just about all of Fire's massive £200 budget & had nothing to show for it. "Unchained Melody" was at No. 1 at the time & I liked the way it used one performance of the song filmed from various angles as the video. So we decided to try & do something similar in the photo studio at St Martin's. We blew the rest of the budget on a star-cloth background & I ended up having to make Nick a drum kit out of cardboard because we couldn't afford to bring the real one down. Luckily, it worked.
