Concept: Taimur Tajik
Produced, directed and edited: Faraz Haider
Director of Photography: Haider Azim
Produced at: RevX Studios
Starring: Taimur Tajik (guitars/vocals); Saad Khan (bass guitar); Kami (drums); & Osama Tahir (as the victim)

The video is disturbing and here are Taimur's own words on the concept behind it: "'Order For Disorder' is a global socio-political commentary on modern events and perception. The video features an unknown man in an unknown location strapped to a chair. His captors and his whereabouts are also unknown.

"In front of him is a television set playing looped images and videos preceded by key words 'happiness', 'harmony', 'peace', 'humanity' etc.

"At first, the images are safe and acceptable, linking appropriately to the words. However, the words are later juxtaposed with more 'unpleasant' and contradicting real world images and video.

"In the end, despite breaking free from his bounds, the captive chooses to protest his newly discovered humanity rather than return to it (through self immolation). He has realized that humanity is no longer humane as he was once led to believe.

"This is reflected in the music. Although his influences can be heard, in both the music and vocals, Taimur makes this his own, with hard rocking riffs, well produced vocals and a stonking solo, this is one for those hard rock fans to play loud."

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.
