CHAPTER FOUR ‘LET’S START A BAND’ ‘I don’t think we try to fool anyone. We’re not really that cool. ’ LUKE HEMMINGS, ROCK SOUND MAGAZINE At the beginning of 2011, Luke had summoned up the courage to start posting videos of himself singing and playing guitar on his YouTube channel, Hemmo1996. By the beginning of February, at just fourteen years old, Luke uploaded a cover of Mike Posner’s ‘Please Don’t Go’. In its original form, it is more of an R&B club track, but Luke stripped the song down to expose its simple, heartfelt lyrics and it proved to be a perfect showcase for his soulful vocal style and growing skills on acoustic guitar.
All the boys comment on Calum’s physical appearance, calling him ‘streamline’, ‘hairless’, ‘a cuddly little bear’ and perhaps somewhat disturbingly, ‘like a naked mole-rat’. Calum’s earliest involvement with the band proved to be vitally important. As the third member of the group to join in on the Norwest jamming sessions, alongside the newly bonded Luke and Michael, Calum provided the all-important impetus that turned their casual get-togethers from shambolic ‘banding’ into something much more organized.
