Following the first radio airing of Courteeners’ new single Lose Control, on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio One show, we headed over to Piccadilly to meet up with the band’s frontman Liam Fray and drummer Michael Campbell, introducing the two band members to an unfamiliar interview concept, one where the band would be presented with a whiteboard and a selection of marker pens, in which would be used to answer their interview questions. So discussing the new single, their third studio album – Anna – and their iconic hometown.

Here’s how they got on.
