Former SNUFF guitarist and singer SIMON WELLS returns with a new video which he's launching exclusively with Vive Le Rock!
'Optimism' is taken from Simon's debut solo album Crime Of The Scene and features pianist and singer Carol Hodge. The video was shot in and around Hastings by renowned filmmaker Mark Richards.

He later founded mod-punks SOUTHPORT, releasing albums on Go Kart, Golf and Boss Tuneage.
