The View perform for Mencap

The Fratellis and The View continued the Mencap Little Noise Sessions tonight (November 23).

Both bands lent their cause to the charity at the Union Chapel in Islington with acoustic shows dedicated to people with learning disabailities.

Following short sets from The Hours and Mohair, The View kicked off proceedings with a 30 minute set which borrowed heavily from their forthcoming debut 'Hats Off To The Buskers' including hit singles 'Superstar Tradesman' and album track 'Face For The Radio'.

Speaking after their performance singer Kyle Falconer told NME.COM: "We've done acoustic shows a couple of times before and none of them have ever been that good but it was great to play a show like this with a bit of spontaneity and have a proper drum kit.

"I really enjoyed it, it was good, it was cool. We never really knew it was gonna be acoustic in that sort of vibe and nobody knew it was gonna be in a church. I was swearing a bit at the beginning of some of the tunes and didn't realise I was in a church and then I changed some of the lyrics to double dutch so I could make myself feel better ha ha."
