Posted by Helmet on Mar 15 2011
We’re a little slow off the mark on this one… sorry! Anyway, head over to the BBC Radio 1 website check out a live session recorded for them at London’s legendary Maida Vale studios in December last year. It went out on the Rock Show with Daniel P Carter early this morning (UK time) and can be heard for the next 7 days via their iPlayer on demand facility. Tracks played are Welcome To Algiers, Ironhead and So Long.
