The news comes after Liam Fray appeared with Johnny Vaughan and the 4-Til-7 Thang in Manchester last month, where he treated his home crowd to a special acoustic set.

Radio X were at the Gorilla club in the city for the climax of Little Si’s Legendary Pub Tour with Strongbow and the Courteeners frontman played a short set of tunes for a giddy crowd of fans.

The musician wowed the audience with a stropped-back mash-up of Pulp’s classic Britpop hit Disco 2000 with his very own indie banger Not Nineteen Forever.
