The Others storm the BBC…

THE OTHERS took their unique brand of guerrilla gigging to new levels of audacity (June 30) when they played two impromptu shows in just three hours.

First the four-piece launched into an impromptu performance in the lobby of BBC Radio 1. Fans filled the reception as bemused staff looked on in shock until security guards broke through he crowd and stopped the show.

The Others then led the group of fans into nearby Regents Park where they played a second set, confounding evening joggers and dog-walkers.

Using battery powered amplifiers, a child’s drum kit and a megaphone, the performance saw members of the band climb a tree to play.

The Others are confirmed for this year’s Carling Weekend: Reading And Leeds Festivals over the weekend of August 27-29. For ticket availability call the NME Ticketline on 0870 1 663 663.
