Live in session tonight we've Leeds band Wild Beasts. We've a celebrity Peel By Behest from top comedian Stewart Lee and Peel sessions from XTC, New Order and CLose Lobsters. Wild Beasts are Tom Fleming, Benny Little, Chris Talbot and Hayden Thorpe. The band were formed in Kendal in 2002 but moved to Leeds where they remain today. Two Dancers is the second Wild Beasts album, which was co-produced by the band and the northern enigma Richard Formby in Norfolk earlier this year. It follows 2008's widely celebrated debut Limbo, Panto and their single Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants was placed 17th in a national independent record labels chart. The band has a very unique style in Hayden's falsetto delivery.
