Further details

The band move in to a high-rise dump in East London, where they scam free pizzas and eat cat food to stay alive. Their geeky neighbour Sloman is suspicious of his new neighbours but soon finds common ground over his love of their music.

Led into chaos by their manager Chevy, the band attempt to set up a gig in a trendy club only to be kicked out for stealing drinks and lemons to stave off scurvy.

With the help of Stef's sassy and streetwise girlfriend Zoe, the band manage to put on a successful gig in their flat and make some money to pay for beer.

Three banging tunes and videos feature in this episode: I Kicked A Shark In The Face, Ninjas and Begging.
