Gnarls Barkley covered Radiohead's 'The Reckoner' during an intimate show in London last night, which was filmed for a future DVD release.

The soul duo, which consists of Cee-Lo Green and producer Danger Mouse, drew crowds of all ages to the capital's Astoria 2 venue.

Dressed in gold jackets and white shirts the pair played a set which included songs from both their debut album, 'St Elsewhere', and latest LP, 'The Odd Couple'.

The crowd greeted songs like 'Run', 'Who Cares?' and current single 'Who's Gonna Save My Soul' ecstatically, with Brown's voice filling the small venue.

But the biggest reaction, prior to the encore, came for 'Crazy', the bands multi-million selling debut single, which Brown said they had to play become of “contractual obligations”.

After disappearing for a brief break, Gnarls Barkley returned for a three song encore which included a haunting version of 'The Reckoner'.

Green paid tribute to Radiohead before the song, which features on the band's latest album 'In Rainbows', saying they were a group Gnarls Barkley collective admired.

'Smiley Faces' closed the set, with crowds singing along to the tracks intense Motown rhythm.
