Futureheads’ Walking Backwards by Stephen Agnew

David Knight - 2nd Sept 2008

Clearly the band don't mind being portrayed as spoiled brats - at least in puppet form - so there's a good reason why this is a palpable hit, riding high on MTV2 and NME. It's rather better than a warmed-over Spinal Tap - but that drummer is definitely expendible isn't he Meanwhile, Stephen has now officially joined Pulse Films and is being repped by OB Management. What a good start. <strong>Stephen Agnew on making the Futureheads video for Walking Backwards</strong> "I thought it would all go completely tits up, but it didn't. We basically spent two days doubled over laughing at the way that the puppeteers controlled every single scenario that we put them. But we did have the guys who played Zippy and George from Rainbow working two of the puppets. It was really REALLY hard not to keep asking them to do the voices. "The footage ended up looking sweet. I really think that it the fun we all had really comes across in the finished piece."
