Ex Babyshambles drummer’s new band play Madame Tussauds

Kings Of Leon turn up to aftershow

Ex Babyshambles drummer Gemma Clarke performed with her new band, The Krak, at Madame Tussauds, London yesterday (June 24).

Taking to the stage at 10.30am (BST) the band played a short acoustic set, with Clarke on bongos, surrounded by wax models including Marc Bolan, Jimi Hendrix, Madonna, Freddie Mercury and Beyonce.

The band then held a second guerrilla type gig at London’s Met Bar afterwards and none other than Kings Of Leon came down.

The Glastonbury headliners popped in to check out the group after the bar sent round an e mail to their members saying The Krak would be playing these two shows as well as the same festival as the American foursome.

This isn’t the first time The Krak have done a guerrilla gig though.

Last year they made history by being the first ever band to play the Orient Express.

Speaking to NME.COM after the gig Gemma Clarke said: “The whole vibe of the day was wicked – I loved it.”

She added she was shocked to see Kings Of Leon at the second leg of their guerrilla gigs saying: “When they walked in I nearly dropped my tambourine – they stayed to watch the whole show.”

The Krak are scheduled to play every single day at this year’s Glastonbury in support of their debut single ‘Madame Riviere’ out June 30.
