Who: The Horrors
Where and when: John Peel Stage, Saturday
Vibe: Pretty game-changing and grasping at the epic. Material from forthcoming album ‘Skying’ meshes beautifully with the stuff from ‘Primary Colours’.
Best bit: Faris throwing himself about the stage, playing the part of the attention-hogging showman in a way we always knew he could.
Low point: The scrappy sound which buries his vocal.
Banter: Apart from the occasional “thank you”‘s, there’s minimal chat going on. He may be sporting a red leather jacket, but Faris is still a shy goth at heart.
Verdict: From shoegaze to baggy rave, in one beautiful leap.
