Super Furry Animals blew up the main stage PA system during their Jersey Live Festival set on Sunday (2 September).
The Welsh rockers proved too loud for the festival’s soundsystem after performing their hit ‘Receptacle For The Respectable’.
Gruff Rhys and co. played a particularly noisy version of the track culminating with Rhys rubbing his guitar against Huw Bunford’s guitar and Gutos Pryce’s bass in a raucous finale before the power shut off.
The problem was highlighted when Rhys’ microphone appeared inactive as he spoke to the crowd. The setback prompted the band to leave the stage leaving the audience thinking the set was over.
However three minutes later the band returned with the PA back in working order. In his second attempt to speak to the spectators Rhys said: “Sorry about that – we blew up the PA.”
The stars still had time to perform ‘God! Show Me Magic’, ‘Do Or Die’ and ‘The Man Don’t Give A Fuck’ before they left the stage for to rapturous ecstatic applause.
