Skin-tight gold pants, KFC wetwipes, weed-smoking hippies... it's all in a day's work for Heavy on the Magic. We met the band earlier this month – Crowley-influenced videogames and Manchester's multi-culturalism were among the topics up for discussion – but here's a chance to witness the band's sonic majesty captured live.

Marrying the frazzled rush of their 70s punk/new wave influences with a flair for the fancy (and a certain wired stage presence), they're an excitable bundle of energy and charm thats ideally suited to explosive live shows. Catch 'em at The Deaf Institute to see 'em in the flesh; in the meantime check out the video above to fall for 'em right away.
