"I managed her [Lily Allen] for two years (2003/4) while I was managing another band called Audio Bullys and unfortunately all the A&R men in London seemed to be deaf for the six months we were hawking around eight of the 11 tracks that were on that record, Smile included. After about the tenth knock back we said this isn't really working and a friend of mine who runs Remedy Productions asked if I'd like to come in and have a bash at presenting so I went and did that. My friend Adrian then managed Lily and they put the stuff on myspace and it went from there."
