By the way, am I the only one who found it annoying how the vocalist and guitarist kept smiling all the time when they were playing on Jools? Kinda creepy, too.

So how much is Damon responsible for these guys new found fame in this country? I don't really understand what Africa Express is/how involved Damon is etc.
