The chart-topping stars, watched by members of Super Furry Animals, The Bluetones and Dodgy, then played an hour-long set, including material from their forthcoming album 'Handcream For A Generation', due for release on April 1 through Wiiija. As well as new single 'Lessons Learned From Rocky I To Rocky III', the band also premiered 'Heavy Soup', 'Staging The Plaguing Of the Raised Platform' and the 14-minute epic 'Spectral Mornings', although Noel Gallagher, who plays on the album, did not show up to reprise his role.

Cornershop also played a host of old favourites, including the Number One single 'Brimful Of Asha' and their Punjabi version of Beatles' 'Norwegian Wood'.

The full set was:

'Heavy Soup'
'6am Jullander Shere'
'Staging The Plaguing Of The Raised Platform'
'Good Shit'
'We're In Yer Corner'
'Butter The Soul'
'Sleep On The Left Side'
