One of my mates from school recorded me getting out of the car from the music video and it seemed to be his party piece for the next 5 years. Do you remember Russ from school, yeah, check him out getting out of this car in this music video. For the next 5 years I’d go home for Christmas and everyone would say they’d seen me getting out of the car with my bass. . . (I couldn’t actually drive at the time) and still had no idea why they thought it funny.
Holland started going big for us then. We went to their big radio station and they’d built a 3D maze with actual live rats so they could bet on which would get to the end first. That tells you it was going well there. By that time at festivals, we were doing 6pm slots on main stages and Chris’s guitar parts on this song were just absolutely phenomenal.
Welcome to the Black Gold Archives. Explore the timeline as it chronicles sixteen tracks that make up the Black Gold greatest hits record and discover stories from each song. Videos, photos and memories written by the band and people who lived through every era of Editors. And, most importantly, add your own memory to the archives and let the whole world share in it. Every memory that is shared will be added to the archive. A photo of a tiny, sweaty gig in the early 2000s… A grainy video taken from your old camera phone thrust in the air while you lived out your favourite festival moment… Or maybe words. A story, a moment, a memory.
Explore the Black Gold Archive at your leisure and share in the moments that crafted Editors. And don’t forget to leave something to show the world that you were part of the journey too.
