CSS closed day two of Glastonbury 2008 with a raucous, glitter-splattered set on the Park Stage tonight (June 28).

Taking to the balloon-decorated stage at 12.05am (BST), singer Lovefoxxx, sporting an enormous woolly coat and white afro wig, screamed wildly at the audience then launched into new track 'Rat Is Dead (Rage)'.

The singer then shed her coat to reveal a shiny golden jumpsuit before leading the crowd through a unified dance move.

The Park Stage audience copied her arm-wave motion in time, creating a sea of flailing limbs.

CSS played a slew of new songs from 'Donkey', out July 21, including new single 'Left Behind'.

During the song Lovefoxxx shed her golden catsuit to reveal a green and purple one beneath it.

The Brazillian band also played older numbers including 'Off The Hook' and 'Alcohol'.

During the latter track, Lovefoxxx teased the crowd, pretending she was about to leap into the front row then backing off, drawing a particularly loud response from some audience members waving a Brazilian flag.

After playing another new album track - 'Reggae All Night' - Lovefoxxx revealed that the band, who had originally been scheduled to play at 11.30pm (BST), would not be playing a full set.

"It took so long setting up, so we had to cut it short," she said in a dismayed tone. "I know!" She exclaimed when the crowd boo-ed in response. "We've been waiting for this moment all our lives!"

CSS ended their set with a frenetic run-through of 'Alala'.

The band fired glitter guns into the crowd at the climax of the song, then used them to smash up the stage wildly before heading off.

CSS played:

'Rat Is Dead (Rage)'
'Meeting Paris Hilton'
'This Month, Day 10'
'Left Behind'
'Off The Hook'
'Music Is My Hot Hot Sex'
'Reggae All Night'
'Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above'
