Pigstock 2012 - Runaway GO

Post categories:

ATL | 20:06 UK time, Saturday, 2 June 2012



Mainstage, 4.25pm June 2nd

Describe in a tweet: The (new) old reliables.

What happened: Feels like they're festival veterans, simply because they do it so well. 'Electric' sets their stall out nice and early, the first of many highlights, but it's their general demeanour and charm which will win them many a new fan this summer. Dave works the crowd constantly, Fiona is effortlessly cool. Despite the notably chilled vibe (the main stage is still to get to its feet today) we've a proper call-and-response situation during 'Delicate Man'.

Yes: 'Wide Awake' is an obvious standout and makes for a wonderful conclusion, but lets reference 'Jump Start', one of two new songs. That debut album really is worth looking forward to.

No: Such excellent stagecraft only highlights how other bands can let themselves down.

Pigstock rating: 8/10
