Jimmy Brown - 12th Sept 2012

"The inspiration for the song comes from former London stock-picker Geraint Anderson's book Cityboy" explains Ben Lankester about his promo for The Twang's new single Mainline.

"With this in mind we wanted to create something along the lines of Falling Down, following a tortured suit's journey across a sweltering city as his day goes from bad to worse. But our minuscule budget meant we had to settle for Birmingham and Coventry over L.A."
