Did You Know?

Trivia:

Francis confirmed that Avid Merrion's name, accent and dialect were inspired by his former teacher at the Leeds College of Art, Laimonis Mierins. He also pointed out that Merrion is a mis-spelling of Mierins and is nothing to do with the Merrion Centre in Leeds as many people assume. See more »
