Here’s an off-cut from the forthcoming music documentary Flawed Is Beautiful…
The film is about the short-lived New Wave Of New Wave music scene, a (superior) precursor to Britpop centred around the bands These Animal Men and S*M*A*S*H. Writing about these bands as a teenager in 1994/1995 lead me to a career in music journalism. (I joined Melody Maker as staff writer the following year.)
Some more details about the film are here.

And S*M*A*S*H, on the road. Early 1994.
