Comic Relief Last Night - Elbow

Comic Relief last night was disappointing and amazing at the same time. It was great that they raised so much money £50+ million but the comedy was a bit lacking. I thought the sketch by Smithy with the England Team was great but other than that I hardly laughed. I'm glad i donated at the start of the night otherwise I might have changed my mind.

Elbow performed a track that not everyone is familiar with, it's the last track of their previous album, Leaders of the Free World. I thought it was quite fitting rather than singing One Day Like This. If you've only just got in to Elbow it is definitely worth exploring their back catalogue, I recommend Cast of Thousands...

Yes. Leaders of the Free World is a great album. Asleep in the Back is also one worth listening to if you like your Elbow. I completed my digital Elbow collection at www.emusic.com where all their past albums (even EPs) are cheap as chips.

Thanks for the tip but I still like to buy the CDs. Plus you can't look at anything on emusic without signing up first...

What time was this on the comic relief show? Trying to find it on Iplayer but with no success so far.

I would guess at between 9 and 10.30. They were on just after a sad piece hence why the somber tune.

this song is from the new elbow album "build a rocket boys!'

I don't think it is. It's off Leaders of the Free World.
