Har Mar Superstar
provided the impromptu aftershow entertainment last night following The Raveonettes' headlining NME AWARDS SHOW at LONDON's ASTORIA (February 8).

After cramming 60 people into a late-night low-key Soho piano bar, the portly-Casanova serenaded a mesmerised crowd with renditions of 'How Deep Is Your Love?', 'Your Song' and undoubtedly the evening's highlight - Lionel Richie's 'Hello'.

In between dedicating songs to The Raveonettes' Sharin Foo, Har Mar broke out some dance moves on the cramped stage, climbed over chairs and tables before virtually walking out of the venue still singing through a radio microphone.

Earlier in the evening Har Mar Superstar played a more traditional set supporting the Danish duo alongside Delays and The Duke Spirit.

Speaking to NME.COM backstage before his set, he said: "It's going to be fun. I've a bunch of new songs I'm busting out... One's called 'D.U.I.' and it's about drug dialling - dialling under the influence. There's one called 'Sex Tape' about home movies and then there's one called 'As' about the change in the seasons."

The Raveonettes played a spectacular set with an equally impressive light show, tearing through the crowd-pleasing 'Chain Gang Of Love', 'That Great Love Sound', 'Little Animal', 'Noisy Summer' and 'Attack Of The Ghost Riders'. The gig also marked the first time the band had played live in two months.

Guitarist Sune Rose Wagner told NME.COM: "It was nice to have more energy to put into the shows and the songs. We did 207 shows in row over 14 months so we took a break for two months."

He added: "Tonight was nice because you think about every chord you play. We've never got tired of any of the songs that we have though... we always enjoy playing them, even after 207 shows!"

The NME Awards shows continue tonight with Lostprophets headlining at London Astoria (February 9), with support coming from The Bronx and Avenged Sevenfold.
