Why the Towers fell

The Rev, who attempted to leave The Towers of London with whatever dignity he could muster, has revealed exclusively to the NME why he had to go:

"I felt the integrity of the band had gone since Donny's appearance on 'Celebrity Big Brother'. Donny and Dirk [Tourette] became all about the partying and the music suffered. It had become the Donny Tourette show. I left the band on my own terms."

The integrity had gone from The Towers of London. It's a bit like suggesting the fun had gone out of the mortuary business. And we love the idea that the music had suffered - to be honest, we'd not realised that they actually made music; we'd thought they just came on stage and stood around doing lines from Bad News as blank verse.
