[b]The Charlatans[/b] previewed two new tracks live last night (September 3) whilst filming for episode three of Alan McGee's [b]Death Disco[/b] TV.

Tim Burgess was on top drawling form for the filming session at London's Cuckoo Club as The Charlatans performed next single 'Cross My Path', which is due for release in October.

As well as the new tracks, the band also played through a selection of their hits, starting with '[b]Weirdo[/b]' - they did 'The Architect', 'You're So Pretty, We're So Pretty', 'Love Is The Key' and ended with 'How High.'

As well as the Charlatans, Kyle from [b]The View[/b] bounded on stage to perform two tracks solo, including a tribute to the [b]Beatles[/b] with a version of 'I've Just Seen A Face' from the Fab Four's '65 LP 'Help!'

Death Disco is the regular West London club night run by music industry player [b]Alan McGee[/b], and the new monthly TV show on the Rockworld channel has previously seen performances by [b]Enter Shikari[/b] and indie supergroup The Chavs.

Episode three - featuring The Charlatans will be broadcast at 9pm on September 28.
