Simon Sarin said : I photographed the band at Rock City in Nottingham 5 or 6 years previously and Liam had this floppy Manchester indie kid haircut, I had the image on one of my business cards. I was backstage at Reading Festival so I went up to his tour manager to ask if I could get a portrait of Liam, telling him I wanted to put it on my new business card, showing him my current one, as Liam had a new haircut. They agreed so Liam went off for five minutes to ponce himself up. When he came back, I got him to stand in front of one of the backstage cabins. So that was the backdrop. And I only had one light! 2014 Reading Festival
