The Cribs goad Guns N' Roses at Reading
Singer uses guitar wankery to josh with the crowds
Daniel Fahey - 28 August 2010
The band aired a number of tracks from their latest offering ‘Ignore The Ignorant’ but the biggest cheers were
saved for ‘Men’s Needs, Woman’s Needs, Whatever’ singles.
“I heard Guns N’ Roses went off early,” said singer Ryan Jarman to a chorus of boos, “well yeah, this is for you,” he added before performing some fret board wankery on his own.
A trio of ‘Our Bovine Public;, ‘I’m A Realist’ and ‘Man’s Needs’ really got the crowd moving on the main stage, warming them nicely for Dizzee Rascal.
It wasn’t a classic, but the group were well followed anyway with some there to just new band member Johnny Marr.
“I loved The Smiths, I didn’t really like [The Cribs] thought,” Virtual Festivals reader Samantha told us.
