It's a tough time for guitar music in this country.
Locked out of the mainstream, The Spitfires opted to use the only path open to them – they loaded up the tour van and hit the road.
Choppy, Jam-style riffs with some soulful vocals and a uniquely British slant, the band have attracted a huge and extremely dedicated live following.
Debut album 'Response' soared into the UK Top 75 on the back of word of mouth hype, with The Spitfires now set to embark on a huge tour in support of The Ordinary Boys.
Ahead of this, Clash is able to share a live session recording of 'Spark To Start'. Packed with visceral energy and a real sense of bite, you can check it out below.
