Let Clean Cut Kid guide you around the city home to the Beatles, and the best football team on the planet (and no, we're not talking about Everton - don't be silly).

Victoria Street is where it all began. Our practice room is in that big red brick building and we spent months and months hidden away in there working on the live show. It's a bit of a dive, some of the windows don't shut and we got broken into one time, but it has a charm to it. When we were broken into it was really weird because nothing was taken, just the door booted in. To this day we don't know who did it or why. We lived in fear for about 3 months after that and Ev thought someone was gonna come and kill her. In the end, Mike's dad came down and secured it all so it's now like Fort Knox with about 10 different locks and a secret password and small goblin who stands guard...

This is the Cafe Nero on Whitechapel. it was pretty much CCK HQ for the first 3 months when Ross joined about a year ago. We used to meet there every day before rehearsal, then we'd go back when we took a break then go back again sometimes after we'd finished. The staff in there are boss and they didn't mind if we just sat in there and didn't even buy anything. We pretty much were 'Friends' and it was our Central Perk.

This Pub is across the road from our practise room. It's cool and they do pints for £1.80. Just don't ask them for change for the car park....

About 3 minutes walk from here you come to Williamson Square, home to Sweeny's bar which blasts out karaoke from about 9am to midnight. It's funny because we've never heard a bum note coming out of there and it's always absolutely heaving. It's like they vet the people signing up. Either that, or there's a network of absolutely class Karaoke singers we don't know about. When we hear a Clean Cut Kid song blasting out of there it'll be a good day. We'll get a pasty from the nearby Greggs and toast to our success.

Just on the edge of Williamson Square is the Radio City Tower. It's massive and we always try and work out how far it would stretch if it fell over. Basically, would it reach Mike and Ev's flat (which is really close)? We've googled it and Mike did some maths and we think they'd be safe. This was built in 1969 and used to be a revolving restaurant! It's now home to Radio City.

Liverpool One: good shops and shit loads of places to eat, plus a cinema and indoor crazy golf. What more could you want? They also try and do seasonal kind of stuff in the park area. In the summer they make a beach with a bar and in the winter they turn it into a German Beer festival type thing with an Ice bar and skating rink. So basically, whatever they do it involves getting everyone drunk. Wheeeyy!

Bold Street is our favourite street in Liverpool probably. It's full of cool little independent shops and cafes and home to the best coffee you'll ever taste at Bold Street Coffee. They do boss food, boss coffee and always have vinyl playing. We reckon they give their new staff a full days' training in "choosing the perfect album for the current mood." You always see the staff putting genuine thought into what record they're gonna put on next when the current one is finishing up. It's a nice touch. Standard order: Flat White and a breakfast bar.

If you walk to the top of Bold Street you come to a pretty iconic building in Liverpool - The Bombed Out Church or, St Lukes. This was a former parish church, built in the 1800s and was really badly damaged during the Liverpool Blitz. It now exists as a shell, with the outside completely intact but the inside completely hollow. Because of that, it's the perfect venue for outdoor gigs, movie nights and there's always some sort of arty thing going on in there. Some big wigs tried to turn it into a hotel or something a few years back, but the city fought back and won! Go team, go!

Just across from St Lukes is a 'blink and you'll miss it' speakeasy called Berry & Rye. It's got no sign, the blinds are always down and the door stays shut. You've got to knock on the door, a bouncer opens up and counts your group then closes the door again. If there's enough seats he'll open back up and let you in, if not you're left standing there 'til someone leaves. It does a boss Whiskey Old Fashioned and the menu is hidden inside a bible.

This is FACT. It's an independent cinema that also doubles as an art and media exhibition space. It's on Wood Street, parallel to Bold Street. There's always cool stuff going on in there and it's got a screen called The Box where all the seats are two seater sofas. It's boss!

Another place on Bold Street we've recently discovered is Mowgli. It does Indian street food, and does it bloody well! They do this thing called a Workers Tiffin box and it's basically pot luck what dishes you get. It's so so tasty and pretty much impossible to get a table after 6pm every night of the week. Good sign!

No day in the life of Clean Cut Kid would be complete without a visit to this fruit shop on Berkely Street, where Upper Parliament meets Princes Avenue. Saul is vegan and eats an unbelievable amount of fruit and veg and this is his go-to spot. He's always got a huge backpack with him full of bananas and watermelons. He's a machine! He once ordered 100 bananas on a Tesco delivery and they were gone in about 3 days.

Lastly, this is Parr Street. Home to Parr Street studios. It used to belong to Phil Collins and is the biggest recording studio outside of London. This is where every Clean Cut Kid single so far has gone down and it's where we're making our album with our friend and co-producer Rich Turvey.
