Kieran Evans has achieved great things with his trilogy of videos for the Manic Street Preachers' album Rewind The Film about life in a South Wales mining village - and the second, for Show Me The Wonder, has just won Best Video at the 2013 Q Awards. 

And Kieran has also completed his third collaboration between director Kieran Evans and the legendary Edwyn Collins. Too Bad (That's Sad) is a Northern Soul-inspired stomper from Collins' latest album Understated, released on his own label AED. As such Evans sought to create a sketch book / road map from Collins' recording studio in London to Wigan, the heart of Northern Soul.

And the video features performances by Sex Pistols legend Paul Cook, Carwyn Ellis and Collins' son Will.
