Last month saw the band debuting ‘Before We Was We’, an autobiographical look back at the band’s formative years in 1970s London.
In a four-star review of the series, NME wrote: “The colour-drained stock footage of crumbling London slums, dirt-smeared toddlers and flower-pinnied grannies used to accompany tales from the band’s upbringings relies on 1970s poverty clichés to Dickensian extremes (Oliver Smash, anyone?), but once they begin to depart their lives of crime and street art (Suggs relates a tearaway youth as one of Kilburn’s most notorious bridge-taggers) for more wholesome rock ’n’ roll pursuits, the series takes a sharp turn from the hackneyed to the hyper-real.”
