Why I support Johann Hari

This should be enough.

When I was 21...

When I was very young I played in a rock band called backwater. I was only a teenager when the songs were written and 21 when they were released. Some of them made it into the indie charts and our faces could be seen in the NME or melody maker and even on MTV once or twice.
There was an album, angels are cool, and a bunch of singles; these were nearly all released on Che, a label based in East London. There is one surviving picture of backwater on the internet and all copies of the videos have been burnt but some of the songs, despite not dating very well, are still pretty cool.
