The Drums get Reading on it’s feet

Indie pop proved its appeal in Reading's NME stage with The Drums managing to fill the stage to standing room only in anticipation of their set.

"Thank you very much, this is called 'I Felt Stupid'” explained lead singer Jonathan Pierce, who dressed in a mustard coloured shirt for the occasion, as he glided across the stage for their performance of the single.

Other songs included 'Don't Be A Jerk Johhny' which Pierce introduced as "a song about a girl I used to love, but now I hate," as the band began the intro and he used his fist to bang the monitor in front of him.

The band however, failed to maintain their early appeal with the rear half of the tent emptying substantially before the set’s climax.

Reading Festival 2010
