Today was a very good day in the fields with the sfcsim's.
We saw the below.
Maximo Park, who were delayed on their flight from Germany, so only had a 25 minute set, but we're still very good, but a shame really, that we did not get a full set.
The Darkness, who 13 years ago, when they headlined Reading I could not stand them! But today I thought they were pretty good and entertaining. The lead singer was quite funny. I think they played the whole of their debut album. As the lead singer said 'well what can is the point of playing songs that none of you have heard!
The Hives, were very good, very lively and very well dressed as ever. Really fun band and a great set. Never seen them in their own gig, only ever at festivals, but would like to.
Madness - what a show as per normal, got the crowd going, very easy to jig around to, not having to really 'dance'. Make the whole set look really easy. Brilliant and such a good relaxed friendly crowd every time I see them, just fun! Like a big house of fun!
