Watch The Subways’ Billy Lunn Play “Lostboy” in Hertfordshire, Ware for “Neighborhoods”
Lunn revives the group’s All or Nothing single on a swing in England’s Presdales Forest.
It’s all history now, but just over a decade ago, on-the-rise U.K. garage rockers The Subways were in the midst of an existential coin-flip wherein the band would either continue putting out energetic post-grunge records, or the nodules afflicting vocalist Billy Lunn would put the project to a screeching halt. Naturally, the record that followed was titled All or Nothing, and from this side of the album’s release it’s clear that the “all” won out—the group followed up that Butch Vig–produced LP with two more, and lately have assured us that their fifth album is coming soon.
For now, though, Lunn is taking us back to 2008 with a performance of The Subways’ single “Lostboy” for his “Neighborhoods” set. Playing the track on a swing near his home in Ware, Hertfordshire’s Presdales Forest, the songwriter gives us an acoustic take on the song amidst the total serenity he finds in the area—which can’t even be dampened by pouring rain. Watch Lunn stay dry during his performance of the track below.
