Socks on Newsnight

Our TV highlight of this year's Edinburgh Fringe has to be our appearance on last night's Newsnight. Okay, it was only a cough and a spit, we didn't get any funny lines in the final edit (we got more into the Edinburgh Extra excerpt, for which the BBC recorded our entire show), but we were featured in the opening montage of the show as well as being in the piece at the end, and it was a fun shoot.

As you'll see, if you catch it on iPlayer before the week is out, the piece involved 8 acts in an X Factor set-up, performing their material about the Scottish Independence debate, some pro some anti, mostly musical, and the ultimate winners performing at the end of the live show. Obviously we didn't win (if we had we'd have had to cancel Thursday night's show, which had a good sized audience, so phew) and the winners were an excellent band of youngsters from Dundee.

So many thanks to the good folks of Newsnight for including us in the line-up, it was a treat.
