Can’t wait to be warmed by the Friendly Fires again…





I was hell bent on going to Reading this year, to me the lineup was near perfect….it had the bands that would revert me to my more youthful days (Limp Bizkit and Blink 182), some of my current favourite bands like Young Guns and those that put on a stonking and madcap show like Gallows…. I knew I’d also enjoy a good boogie to the likes of Phoenix and geek out to old faves Weezer ( who turned out to be one of the weekends highlights with their MGMT/WHEATUS/LADY GAGA covers).

A lot of my friends prefer the dancier side of things so opted for the delights of LED and SW4 festivals. Overall I was happy with my decision , apart from the fact I would be missing Friendly Fires…

I saw them about 5 times in 2009, and every time I left the performance feeling euphoric, smily and ready to party! Not only does the singer have some of the best moves around, the whole band always puts on an exuberant show. When I was at Great Escape festival I got chatting to one of their crew who gave me a few tasty hints about their new album….. I can’t wait to hear what they have put together, but the previous album is going to be pretty hard to beat……
