    12:14 p.m. - TV shows are goldfish bowl affairs. The group is examined and regarded from all sides and generally treated like living specimens. Sometimes the experience can be more human than others. Revolt TV were very respectful, they understand their artist guests are the vital ingredient and were professional to a T.

#OnTheClock with Young Fathers

In case you haven't noticed, Young Fathers have been on a Cross-Atlantic campaign recently. Formed in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2008, the alternative hip-hop trio have celebrated their US tv debut on Live with Kimmel last month, promoting their excellent debut full-length efford Dead. As part of our new series #OnTheClock, Los Angeles-based photographer Theonepointeight had the opportunity to accompany the eccentric band for 24 hours and document their recent stay in Los Angeles. We receive an exclusive behind-the-scenes insight of the group's in-studio performance for Diddy's Revolt TV and witness them rocking the live stage at Low End Theory. In between, we follow Alloysious Massaquoi, Kayus Bankole and 'G' Hastings working on the production line of their popular Scarfman t-shirt as well as prepping some pre-show food at the kitchen. Click through the gallery above and make sure to support this talented group by purchasing your own digital copy of Dead on iTunes.
