CSS brought out extravagant backing dancers for a portion of their hit-packed show at London's KOKO last night (July 17).

The gig was part of the iTunes Live festival, which sees a different band play each night at the venue during the month of July. The gigs are recorded and will be available to download from iTunes.

The Brazilian five-piece showcased a number of tracks from their new album 'Donkey' at the show.

With the stage decked out in silver balloons, and singer Lovefoxxx sporting her customary catsuit under a sparkly tinsel scarf, the band kicked off with 'Meeting Paris Hilton', before performing 2006 debut album 'Cansei De Ser Sexy' closer 'This Month, Day 10'.

Towards the end of the track, two dancers came onstage and danced backwards in front of the drums, wearing animal masks on the backs of their head.

The group then played songs including 'Off The Hook', 'Patins' and 'Alcohol', before which Lovefoxxx said: "This song is a love song."

After 'Reggae All Night', the band went offstage, leading the crowd to chant their name.

Returning for an encore, the group performed their biggest hits 'Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above' and 'Alala'.

CSS played:

'Meeting Paris Hilton'
'This Month, Day 10'
'Left Behind'
'Off The Hook'
'Rat Is Dead (Rage)'
'Music Is My Hot Hot Sex'
'Reggae All Night'
'Air Painter'
'Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above'
