A never-before-released U2 song has emerged in new movie Killing Bono. The movie portrays the early years of the band through the eyes of friend and rival Neil McCormick. Now a journalist for the Daily Telegraph, the film is based on McCormick’s memoir I Was Bono’s Doppelganger.

NME.COM’s exclusive clip above shows U2’s debut gig in Dublin in their original incarnation as The Hype. The song they perform, ‘Street Missions’, is a lost track from those early days.

Producer Ian Flooks told NME: “The song The Hype play at the first gig is a song called ‘Street Missions’ that, although written by them, was as far as I know never recorded so this is the first time it’s been recorded.”

Killing Bono is released in the UK on April 1. It was directed by Nick Hamm and features Ben Barnes, Robert Sheehan and the late Pete Postlethwaite.

The Strokes played their first festival show of 2011 last night (March 17), at Austin’s South By Southwest event.

The band played a free show on Auditorium Shores Stage at Lady Bird Lake at the Austin bash.

Predictably, thousands of fans flocked to the show, with security guards eventually closing off entrances as the gig area reached its capacity. Translators stood at the front of the stage translating the lyrics to sign language to help out hearing impaired gig-goers.

The band played songs from new album ‘Angles’ as well as older hits ‘The Modern Age’, ‘You Only Live Once’, ‘Reptilia’ and set-closer ‘Last Nite’.

A volley of fireworks was let off as they closed the show.

Jack White had made an appearance at the festival the previous day, playing a short live solo set.

The Strokes played:

‘What Ever Happened’
‘The Modern Age
‘You Only Live Once’
‘Under Cover Of Darkness’
‘New York City Cops’
‘You’re So Right’
‘Under Control’
‘Life Is Simple In The Moonlight’
‘I Can’t Win’
‘Taken For A Fool’
‘Take It Or Leave It’
‘Hard To Explain’
‘Last Nite’

Arcade Fire’s Will Butler has told NME that the band have started work on their next album, and may play new material at their London Hyde Park gig on June 30.

He was speaking at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, where he was promoting the band’s new short film Scenes From The Suburbs.

“For the last couple months we’ve been practising, playing around and doing demos,” he said. “Nothing formal, but we have been having a kind of creative session.”

Speaking about the June London show, he added: “It is a lot harder to play new stuff because the person at the back doesn’t get gripped when they hear it. “So if we’re not at that space at the [Hyde Park] show then it won’t go that way, but we are definitely considering it.”

Asked when he wants the band’s new album to be released, Butler referenced the long gaps Arcade Fire have taken between releasing previous records.

“We’re not setting plans because it tends to stress us out a bit,” he said. “But the only vague desire is to have the new album not come out three years from now – it would be nice to get out it a little snappier than that this time.”

Scenes From The Suburbs’, Arcade Fire’s new film collaboration with Spike Jonze, was shown at SXSW.

“We’ve wanted to work with Spike Jonze forever,” Butler said. “For me personally, it was since the [Beastie Boys’] ‘Sabotage’ video! We basically wanted to work with him because he was the best.”

Butler added that he and Arcade Fire frontman Win, his brother, took a prime role during the filming process of the 30-minute movie, which is loosely based on their album ‘The Suburbs’.

“About a week before filming me and Win came down to Austin and we rewrote the script and planned it out, did the final casting and stuff. And then we filmed the next two weeks,” he said.

He added: “I was on set the whole time. I ended up being the script supervisor, who basically is the guy who makes sure the drink is always in the right hand and doesn’t shift to the left hand on camera. It was basically being assistant to everyone. So I’d be wiping the bumper of the car to make it look better on camera, but also telling the kid acting, ‘Don’t say that line that way, do it like this!’. It was a lot of fun, but a lot of hard work too.”

TV On The Radio returned to live action at the South By Southwest festival this week (beginning March 14), previewing their new album ‘Nine Types Of Light’.

Bassist Gerard Smith was out of the line-up following his diagnoses of lung cancer, so drummer Jaleel Bunton stepped in on bass duties. Guest drummer Japhet Landis filled in behind the kit.

Guitarist/vocalist Kyp Malone, speaking before the band’s show at the Spin party at the Texas event, told NME that it felt great to be playing together again after over three years away.

“We didn’t really have time to miss each other because we see each other all the time,” he said, “but it’s great to be playing together again. We’re still learning the songs from ‘Nine Types Of Light’ and we haven’t been here at SXSW as a band for years.”

Malone confessed that his attention has been torn between the festival in Austin and major world events including the recent Japan earthquake and union demonstrations in Wisconsin.

“There are a lot of things happening globally that exceed the importance of what’s happening here,” he said. “Reports about Japan and Wisconsin took my eyes away from Austin.”

He also mentioned that he recently went to Algeria to work on music, and he hopes to return after touring in support of the new album. “I’d really like to go to the African continent more to work there,” he said. “I think it’s totally possible.”

‘Nine Types Of Light’ is due out on April 11.

TV On The Radio played:

‘Young Liars’
‘Dancing Choose’
‘Will Do’
‘Staring At The Sun’
‘Red Dress’
‘Blues From Down Here’
‘Wolf Like Me’
