We have Five in Five with Beans on Toast as they announce their new single Jamie & Lilly

A modern-day love song set against a Brighton backdrop, we’re offered a glimpse into the lives of two wonderfully special people.

A teacher and a nurse. The music video features the actual couple that the song was written about (also pictured above) and the short story, told by Beans himself, explains how it all came around.

What has been your biggest [email protected] up on stage? Where was it, what song was it how was it received by fans? I don’t think I’ve ever played a set and not fucked up, it’s just how it goes and in some ways it’s become part of the show. Mastering the art of fucking up is something that I strive for.

You’re changing the band’s name to your favourite fruit + the reason you last took pain killers. Your new band name is… ? Banana Crooked Neck

How can we collectively put an end to online ticket touting? Feel free to show your working out for extra points… By using phone tickets like DICE, think they’ve got a solid format for the future of ticketing. Or pass a law banning the sale of tickets above the normal price. Sorted.

What would your Music Super Power be and what other band would you use it on and why? I’d be like a musician cupid with a song that makes everybody fall header heals in Love with the next person they see. I’d sing it to everyone, in a band or not.

Your idols gonna give you the instrument that their famous for,

Who is it? Jim Morrison
What Instrument? Words
Why? Why not.
