Ever since they topped the public vote in the town’s first-ever Stepping Stones: Battle Of The Bands back in May, GG has been trying to get the five members of Taken in one place at the same time to record their winning song.

As Eoin heads into his basement to make sure his captured that magic Taken moment just so, and Robin locks himself away in the editing suite to create Taken’s first-ever video, we swung by unannounced on Saturday to catch the girls in action…
