Byron always stuck out to me. His passion and real life heart on the sleeve delivery was always on point and (sometimes) painfully honest. The Manor is a real insight to what it was like living in funnel town. Sadly, my time in Nine High was short lived. Hanging up my mic at the tender age of 21! I wanted to concentrate on my filmmaking but I always loved recording and always loved performing with Nine High so when Byron asked me to direct his music video, I was overjoyed to be working with him again
This music video is about the town where Byron grew up, Slough. Before ‘The Office’ came about Slough only really had a reputation for being a shit hole. I guess The Office didn’t really do much to change that!
‘My manors filled with scumbags and dumb slags, walls covered in tags’
It’s a brutal first line. Fitting for the intro of a song that goes on to describe life growing up in Slough. Drug dealers, police busts, arrests, single parent families and teenage pregnancies are topics that all crop up in this account of life growing up in Slough
