Bringing it all back home

At the tail end of a world tour, the band took to Studio One to record a session for the Vic Galloway Show - the programme that gave them their first ever radio session.

First up was a cover of a fairly obscure but notorious Glasgow band from the 90s, LungLeg. After a couple of goes they nailed it - it sounds like a lost Franz classic.

They then rattled through three of their new songs at breakneck speed, and consequently the footage here captures the band in the raw, at the peak of their game. Great stuff.
