Good day. Sunshine? No. Good bands. You want The Jam spat out all over an Eminem London street? Witness THE LIBERTINES, if you can catch them that is. You want Swedish supermodel rock. SWEDISH SUPERMODEL GIRLS WHO ROCK? SAHARA HOTNIGHTS are here.
VEX RED pedal metal, electronic British rock stylists of some growing confidence. They carry an NME endorsed reputation as "possibly the best new band in Britain", but the dark, industrial tones of stunning debut album 'Start With a Strong And Persistant Desire' do a lot to justify the hype.
The backlash against ANDREW WK (previous darling of the NME), on the other hand, is in full swing. Isn't he the biggest joke on the bill? We'll leave the review to a newly converted fan we met called Mary: "The performance was the funniest thing I saw all weekend, well worth the £90 plus booking fee alone. He didn't stop smiling once and his dancing put my six year old nephew to shame. Unlike those miserable, moany men from Muse, Andrew WK looked like he was having the time of his life on stage, and therefore I did too. When and where can I see him again?"
Up next, LESS THAN JAKE set new crowdsurfing distance records. They even exceed those achieved by Sum 41 previously. It's all 'wacky' fun, yessiree. For a band who once released an entire album of metal-style covers from the movie 'Grease', how could it not be?
Following on, A take the stage to their most raptuous applause ever. Last time they played here, they were bottom of the bill - music to wake up to. We only knew 'Lake Tahoe'. Today, things could not be any more different, and as singer Jason Perry (the Sporty Spice of UK rock) bounces around the expansive stage, we are singing along joyously to every word of anthems like 'Nothing' and 'Starbucks'. It's a funny old world.
