Stuck in Basildon New Town with dreams of becoming a pop star. On the dole being hunted and preyed upon by universal welfare reforms, all the whilst aspirations bubble inside. A tunnel sneaking through the M25, a divide physical, political and economical. A fanaticism for the Job Centre similar to that of Depeche Mode's Eastern European fanbase. A desire to transform. From beige British sitcoms to the colour of Hollywood. A verse constantly trying to reach its chorus.

An assemblage of images and sounds from a weird new world produced, collected and dumped for the RCA WIP show.
