See the Courteeners frontman treat fans to a rendition of Not Nineteen Forever with Pulp's Disco 2000.

Liam Fray played a very special acoustic set in Manchester in the summer of 2019 and brought out an amazing medley.

Johnny Vaughan and his 4 Til 7 Thang were at the Gorilla club in the city 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.

Radio X, of course, was on hand to capture the moment.

Take a look at our video above, which sees him blend the 1995 Britpop classic with the 2008 single for an absolutely delighted home crowd.

Liam Fray has previously revealed the story of Not Nineteen Forever to Radio X, explaining: “It’s about, I guess, growing old, not wanting to grow up."

Hinting at Britain's binge drinking culture, the frontman mused: “Well, the first lyric is: ‘She tried to peel me off the pavement,’ so if you want to know why it’s connected with the British public I would guess…

“I don’t know if that’s a great representation of who we are, but maybe. I guess there’s a lot of honesty.”

On St. Jude in general the Cavorting rocker said: “It’s quite an honest album. I think It’s overlooked because people think it’s just about going out and getting smashed and forgetting it.

“But a lot of it is probably: ‘Why are you doing that?’”
