Following success with band Second Child, Damien Binder struck out on his own. 'Good As Gone' is a jangly rock tune from Binder's self-titled debut album. The accompanying video sees Binder going corporate, one of three suits in a beige office — a shift from his grunge roots. Things change when the music kicks in: his companions have to restrain and wrestle him as he belts out the lyrics. There may be some organisation to the chaos though — they stop at half-time for orange slices and water, before others join the fray. Director Jonathan King has made videos for both Binder and Second Child.
