Exclusive JJ & Baz studio and live download trackYou are a swine

During a brief respite in work on the next studio album last week, JJ and Baz took time out to record a track exclusively for the website.

The new song, entitled You are a swine, was also aired live in the JJ & Baz set at November's Convention and shows the band's often overlooked sense of humour. Enjoy!

Updated-the live version from the Weekendinblack is now available to download too (thanks to Louie Nicastro).

Listen to it here...
