Last night (September 16th) marked the start of a new autumn series of the BBC’s flagship music show Later… With Jools Holland, and opening episode one was entrusted to none other than current DIY cover stars Foals.
The Oxford band opened the show with ‘Mountain At My Gates’, before bringing the title track of new album ‘What Went Down’ to the telly-box, complete with an impassioned Yannis Phillippakis breaking the fourth wall and venturing out into the studio for the song’s thunderous climax, and a brief cuddle with an unimpressed looking Rickie Lee Jones.
