LEVI’S ASKED US TO MAKE A DOCUMENTARY FOR UK BROADCASTER CHANNEL 4 ON THE ROCK BAND ASH. WE HATED THEIR MUSIC. THE BAND WERE TOTALLY UNCHARISMATIC. ALSO, THE IDEA OF ASKING SOME ROCK STARS ABOUT WHAT ITS LIKE BEING FAMOUS, OR WHAT THEY WERE NOW RECORDING FILLED US WITH DREAD. SO WHAT TO DO? THERE WAS THIS FAD GOING ON IN NEW YORK WHERE YOU COULD CALL UP A TELEPHONE NUMBER AND ORGANISE YOUR OWN KIDNAPING. YOU COULD CHOOSE HOW AND WHERE, AND HOW LONG AND HOW INTENSE. THAT INSPIRED US.

SO WE DECIDED TO KIDNAP THE BAND FOR A WEEK. WHICH WE DID. WE HELD THEM IN THE FORMER SIERRA LEONE EMBASSY IN LONDON. WE GOT IN TWO STRIPPERS AND A BLIND MEDIUM TO INTERROGATE THEM. NO WAY WERE WE GOING TO ASK THE NORMAL STUFF - WE WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT GOD, ABOUT PAST LIVES, ABOUT DEMONS IN THE HEAD.
