Electric Picnic 2010 - Foals
Crawdaddy Stage, Friday 3rd September 9.20pm
Describe in a tweet: Hope beyond haircuts.
What Happened: Suspicions of overhyped media flavour of the month syndrome are largely dispelled. Still painfully hip, but proving that there is a previously doubted depth with a set of energetic rapid-fire riff based proto anthems.
Ants at a picnic: We're not asking them to come home and meet our ma, or pick out hats for the wedding, but a little interaction goes a long way. The odd good word would have made this less like a display and more like a two way thing. It's a festival lads!
EP rating: 7.5/10
