The pilot episode was broadcast in October 2010 with Everything Everything.

The show aims to give new artists a unique opportunity to record at Abbey Road Studios whilst also introducing Channel 4 viewers to intriguing and alternative new music across a variety of genres.

The show will be filmed predominately in Studio One of Abbey Road Studios and three performances will be recorded for each act. The 15 minute show will broadcast two of those, and the additional performance will be made exclusively available online after the session, details to follow.
