Rock's bigwigs joined forces for the smallest gig either of them have played in years.
Paul Weller and Noel Gallagher tore up this tiny London club - with a capacity of just 600 - to launch the latest offering from the Modfather.
Weller debuted a string of thumping new tracks from his Wake Up The Nation - on course for No1 on Sunday - on Wednesday night.
Then Oasis axe man Noel pitched up and the pair performed the Gallagher-penned Mucky Fingers as well as Weller's own Echoes Round The Sun.
Gripping renditions of classics including Wild Wood and a final triumphant airing of vintage JAM hit Start concluded a special night.
And I wasn't the only one who enjoyed listening to the rock Lords.
Comic Alan Davies even queued up at the North London venue's stage door to get the great Weller's signature after the show.
If you want to experience a man on top of his game look out for Virgin Media's Music On Demand service in June, when the gig will be broadcast
