The tower block that has been their home for years is facing demolition, and a council bungalow awaits them. But while Ronnie embraces the possibilities of a new beginning, her partner, the reclusive Button, fears the move will bring exposure and loss. Packing up their home reveals more than the rodent damage to their hoard of teapots and junk. Crammed to the ceiling with the detritus of lives lived and of disappointed dreams, is the flat a place of safety or a prison? Home - there's no place like it.

Championed by Radio 1's Colin Murray, their hit song He's Turned Emo has been played nearly a quarter of a million times on MySpace.

Love, Bombs & Apples is the comic tale of four men, each from different parts of the globe, all experiencing a moment of revelation.
