Live Gig Video: The Futureheads perform Sparks’ ‘The No. 1 Song in Heaven’ a capella at London Union Chapel

If there was any doubt in your mind how talented Sunderland’s most famous sons the Futureheads were, wipe that all out now. Fellow Mackems Frankie and the Heartstrings alerted us to this video from the Futureheads’ gig last week at London Union Chapel, an amazingly brilliant performance of Sparks ‘The No. 1 Song in Heaven’, entirely a capella in the style of their latest album, ‘Rant’, along with the Cornshed Sisters and choir. (Read Martin’s review of the LP here.) Further, Frankie and co. warn that tickets to the Futureheads’ gig at Sunderland Minster – to feature the Longbenton Community College Choir – are selling fast so if you want in on this sans instrument action, be quick!

For more Futureheads a capella goodness, you can watch their performances of ‘Hanging Johnny’ in the open air here and ‘The Old Dun Cow’ in a pub here.
