The Temper Trap's greatest live moment was when their show turned into "a Bon Jovi video".

The Australian pop group's best ever show was when they made a triumphant homecoming, with the crowd singing along to their tracks, and getting hosed down to stop them overheating.

Guitarist Lorenzo Sillitto said: "We played at Falls festival in front of 15,000 people or something, and we'd never played to a crowd like that.

"Everybody knew the words and was singing along."

Drummer Toby Dundas added: "People were getting sprayed down with a hose as well, which is always pretty rock 'n' roll. You only see that in Bon Jovi film clips and stuff like that, so to think that was happening while people were watching us is pretty cool!"

The 'Sweet Disposition' band - which is completed by vocalist Dougy Mandagi and bass player Jonathon Aherne - also said they loved the fact they were received so well in their home country, as they don't get to spend much time there, after relocating to the UK for their career.

Joseph said: "Well, in moving to the UK, we were all aware of the sacrifice that had to be made to our previous lives and yes, sometimes you do miss loved ones and friends, but at the same time the opportunity was so great, and getting the chance to follow our dreams outweighed all of that."

The Temper Trap filmed their video as part of Channel4 and American Express' My Live Story campaign, where music fans are being asked to submit a video describing their greatest live music moment. The top 21 picked by a judging panel will be made into a short film which will then air on British national TV.
