As the Africa Express rolled into Manchester last night at The Ritz, Hooky took a last minute call from Damon Albarn and his management on the day of the show to come and perform as a surprise guest on "She's Lost Control" which has been forming one of the highlights of the tour.

Joining Spoke Mathambo whose version of "Control" has been performed on Africa Express having picked up  huge popularity on Youtube over the past eighteen months, Hooky was also joined by Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club.

Other artists on the Africa Express, a chartered train which is criss crossing the UK performing pop up gigs, concerts and special appearances on almost an hourly basis, include Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner, Amadou & Mariam, Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys, Giles Peterson, Max├»mo Park, Carl Barat, Rizzle Kicks and The Temper Trap.

Jack Steadman was interviewed by NME about the collaboration here -

As the Africa Express train rolled into London for its finale it appears Hooky was in good company as the special guests on the evening included Sir Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, Kano and Bashy.
