"C***s are Still Running the World"

By the time we'd got down to Connect, made the 15 mile (felt like) trek from the car park to the campsite (twice), and got the tent up we realised we'd missed Amy Macdonald which was a bit of a shame. However, there were plenty of bands still to see on Friday:
  • Make Model - only just caught the end of their set. Wish we'd heard more since what they played sounded really good.
  • Stephen Fretwell - bloke with guitar playing miserable songs. Really enjoyed it.
  • CSS - nothing to do with Cascading Style Sheets thankfully, they were excellent. Bizarre, energetic, and very good fun.
  • Jarvis Cocker - Vikki's highlight of the day, Jarvis was wonderfully quirky. Waffled on about dolphins a bit much for my liking but "Don't let him waste your time" and "C***s are Still Running the World" were stand out sing a long tracks.
  • The Jesus and Mary Chain - one of my favourite all time bands and a great set drawn from all over their back catalogue. All the classics were in there, finishing with Reverence which sounded great. No dolphins.
  • The Beastie Boys - sounded pretty good but my interest waned quickly when they didn't play "Fight For Your Right" in the first few songs, so we decided to go down to the other stage to see...
  • Super Furry Animals - not too shabby but not a band that I know well so difficult to really get into at the end of a long tiring day. They played one song in the style of Teenage Fanclub which merely made us want to see Teenage Fanclub sooner. Left before the end and headed back to the tent for a night of disturbed sleep.
