Invited via Facebook and MySpace to be extras in their upcoming video, a heap of fans turned up to help Blood Red Shoes out for their next single, Heartsink. Shot in a dilapidated car park in South London, fans were asked to bring sentimental objects to smash/break/set on fire with the eventual debris including a vase with dead roses, computer monitor, pavlova, a Beatles book, guitars, a mannequin, a teddy bear and a freaky looking doll.  After a day of destruction there were 4 grazed knees, 2 cut noses, 3 cut fingers, approximately 26 sunburns and half a dozen inebriated people. Half of those were just us. Rock’n'roll. We’ll put the resulting music video up when Blood Red Shoes release it in a couple of weeks.

FAN THE FIRE is a digital magazine about lifestyle and creative culture. Launching back in 2005 as a digital publication about Sony’s PSP handheld games console, we’ve grown and evolved now covering the arts and lifestyle, architecture, design and travel.

We’ve been featured on the front page of Reddit and produced off-shoot club night Friday Night Fist Fight, launched a Creative Agency and events column The London List.
