This is a song i had posted on this blog about a year ago.I just thought it would be cool to post the video for the song featuring my teenage hero without a last name.The mysterious Mr Lawrence shows you how you can look cool wearing while singing one of my favourite lyrics ever ''I just wish my life would be as strange as a conspiracy''.If there was a title for the most esthete band in the world Felt would effortlessly win it.They were,are and will be the most spectacular band in my world.

''The collaborations with Kissing The Pink came about after
we filled in for Seb Fontaine on Radio One''
Diesel from X-PRESS 2 explains.''They wanted us to do
a half-hour Balearic mix as part of the show.One of the tracks
we picked was ''Big Man Restless'' by Kissing The Pink,which
is a Balearic classic.
A week later we got an e-mail from Matthew Roberts
who is mates with the guys from Kissing The Pink.
They heard the Balearic mix and wanted
to know whether we'd be interested working with them.
We agreed to meet up with them and it was quiet mad-
they always been a band we like,but we had no idea they
were still around.''

Dave Clarke about Black's ''Wonderful life''.
''I can't own this record ever, it makes me cry.
It puts into words the struggle that i had emotionally.
I'm so lucky to be doing what I'm doing.
It IS a wonderful life! I remember being young and
running away from home and saying I'd travel the world.
And I am ,actually doing it.
