Watch LaFaro's ATL Session

ATL doesn't like to play favourites, but we do have a rather large soft spot for the rawkus stylings of LaFaro. Voted ATL's local act of the year in both 2006 AND 2007, our admiration for the terrifying tearaways is obvious.

See why they make us go weak at the knees by taking in their splendid session recorded for ATL radio in March 2010, when the usual roar was toned down to a very lovely whisper. There is also frontman Jonny Black performing The Jolly Banker at Belfast's Oh Yeah Centre, or the band covering The Strokes' Juicebox at ATL's big Ulster Hall bash, or you can have a look at the video they made for the glorious Tupenny Nudger back on the third series of ATL TV.

You are then free to enjoy a less noisy sample of their wares in three acoustic session tracks broadcast on October 13th 2008. Frontman Jonny Black also runs us through a few of his personal firsts in a 60 Second Interview, and you can dip into our session archive for a cracking rendition of the Bangles' Walk Like An Egyptian among others.
