Main Stage, Friday 26 May, 9.15pm

Describe in a tweet: Likably agressive ginger-pop.

Axis of performing at Pigstock FEstival 2011, Killinchy, Northern Ireland 27th May 2011



What happened: It's all about Axis Of 2.0 as the lads unveal a bunch of remarkable new songs, the first of which (we await it's title) is a total gem, with 'ba bas' and enormo-hooks almost overshadowing the usual AO bedlam. The band are up for it tonight - getting over some early technical problems (and the fact it's a sparse gathering to begin) via daft banter and frisky moves. By the end we've human pyramids, mosh pits, birthday celebrations and a 'proper' festival vibe. It's on.

Silk purse: Just as we're thinking these tracks are the best things they've done, along comes 'Port Na Spaniagh' to blow us all away. It's a pop song, you know.

Sow's ear: Everyone seems to have forgotten their watch - it takes the mainstage racket a good five minutes to drag folk back from the campsite as Axis Of open to only a handful of punters. Keep an eye on that timetable folks!!

Pigstock rating: 8/10
