“Dusty is a bit of a lout, a bit of an asshole, which is the sort of characters I always seem to play, but despite being a bit of a nightmare, he is the lead singer of The Cocksure Lads. Luckily, as lead singer, I didn’t have to pretend or learn to play any instruments, but it was still amazing to be belting out these mod rock hits in a Northern accent! We did a proper gig in front of around 400 people which was just an awesome, incredible experience. We get this opportunity to fly out to Toronto to try and make it big and crack the Canadian market. When the Cocksure Lads arrive, my character starts being a prat and messes everything up by demanding more royalties. It leads all the characters on a journey of self-discovery about what it means to be a band. It is very funny, and even if it comes off as just a fraction of how much fun it was to make, it is going to go down very well.” – Lyndon Ogbourne
