For Boy Cried Wolf, the story is just beginning…...
“Conversation soon turns to Wayne’s new EP, The Firebrand, scheduled for release on the 1st of November. Largely written on tour with the Manics, Wayne's illustrious band-mates had a significant impact on the creation of the EP as he revealed, “Nicky [Wire] and James [Dean Bradfield] were so encouraging. Nicky offered to write the words for No Comfort From Your Skin. That really galvanized me and gave me the kick up the arse I needed really to get my stuff together.”
With these pretty impressive endorsements under his belt, The Firebrand was largely recorded in a friends front room then finished then finished off at the Manics’ studio in Cardiff, a process that really suited Wayne’s stripped back, honest style of music. “It was great to see the mish-mash of the old recordings and the plush new ones, hopefully this gave us something that was special to us.”
