Pigstock 2011 - ASIWYFA

Post categories:

Rigsy | 00:47 UK time, Saturday, 28 May 2011


Main Stage, Friday, 26th May 11.20pm

Describe in a tweet: Nothing shy of what you'd expect. Greatness.

Rory Friers of And So I Watch You From Afar who headlined the main stage on day 1 of Pigstock Festival 2011




What Happened:  Just your standard ASIWYFA gig really - rib rupturingly loud riffage and an audience behaving like they've finally been cured of an horrendous affliction. Four legends onstage, seemingly moments away from spontaneous combustion. Stage invasions, crowd surfing/diving and apparently the first rain of the day (not that anyone noticed).


Silk Purse: The kid (he must have been about ten) stage invader singing and controlling Rory's peddles during '....Solidarity', the barely controlled lunacy of 'Search:Party:Animal', the mutual love as the band said their thanks. We could go on.


Sow's Ear: While they gave it everything, ASIWYFA did look a little tired. Lets hope they're not pushing themselves too hard touring that second album. Oh, and they didn't play the very brilliant '7 Billion People all Alive at Once' but.... we can't have it all.

Pigstock rating: 8/10
