Kasabian lift Frequency's damp spirits

Robin Card - 19 August 2011

The band performed material from forthcoming album Velociraptor!, including the TV-theme style title track and a thunderous 'Days Are Forgotten'.

However it was oldie 'LSF' - dedicated to Elbow - that prompted the best response of the night. A surprise cover of 'Misirlou' ended with Tom Meighan declaring "Fuck me, wow. Everybody say fuck me!".

After traditional set closer 'Fire', it was evident to all that Kasabian can devastate a festival more than mere elements.

Elbow had to put a halt to their set earlier as extreme weather conditions hit FM4 Frequency 2011. When thunderstorms came on strong the band left stage mid-song returning for a rendition of 'One Day Like This' with frontman Guy Garvey joking, "You can't pay for lighting effects like these."
