We don't know who they are or where they came from, but this marching band has put together possibly our favourite ever rendition of Laurent Garnier's classic, "The Man With The Red Face".

Dressed like band camp fugitives, the eleven piece band start things off slow, with a simmering build. They slowly gather a crowd, who stand about looking more bemused than anything, that all changes once the infamous horn piece drops and everyone in attendance loses their collective shit.

This cover has everything - xylophone, trumpets, sax solos, red faces and redder jackets. Simple put, it's perfect.

This is not actually the first time the track has been performed live, in fact Laurent himself recorded a live version in the Elysee Montmartre in Paris. While Lauren's version is no doubt a pump, it can't quite live up to the spectacle of the full marching band treatment. Which do you prefer? Have a look at Laurent's version below and make your mind up.
