Nine Black Alps

Burn Faster

Nine Black Alps October 2005
As Nine Black Alps' Sam Forrest is the sort of frontman who will never be papped falling out of celeb-friendly hot spots smacked up to the tits with a supermodel girlfriend on one arm and a collection of mind-numbingly dull diary entries tucked under the other, the chances are he's destined to spend the rest of his career slumming it in the indie ghetto.

I guess he'll just have to console himself with the fact that he can still write brilliantly catchy three-minute rock anthems like "Burn Faster" instead. Well, either that or shack up with Kate Moss pronto. She's still available, right?
