The publicity stunt for Headspace's new single 'Lay low' was organised by the bandrepublic.com website, the self-styled 'people's record label'.

Users of the website were asked to vote on whether the publicity stunt should take place outside the offices of a national newspaper, a music magazine or a radio station.

The music magazine option was chosen so the band set up in Southwark Street across the road from IPC Media's headquarters at the Blue Fin Building. NME is one of the many titles published by IPC.
