Biffy Clyro cover Starship in the Live Lounge

Of all the shirt-eschewing Scottish rock bands with a penchant for weird time signatures, Biffy Clyro are clearly the best. Partly because they always have ridiculous facial hair, and partly because they make impeccable choices for their Live Lounge appearances.

Their tender, acoustic version of Umbrella brought new layers of subtlety (and harmony) to Rihanna's all-conquering R&B stomper. But popping into Radio 1 today they surpassed even that milestone... with a flawless cover of Starship's We Built This City.

It would only have been better if they'd come dressed as them, too.

You can also listen to them perform new single Stingin' Belle (it's in 6/8, music nerds) on the end of this link.

After a few delays, the band will release their ambitious double-disc rock opus (uh-oh) on 28 January. If it's any good, I reckon they'll be sitting atop that Pyramid Stage with the Rolling Stones come next June.
