LCD Soundsystem closed the first night (August 27) of the Reading Festival on the NME/Radio 1 Stage - even managing to give the crowd some sexual and dating advice in the process.

Taking to the stage promptly, but still sporting his Wellington boots, James Murphy led his group through a euphoric set.

"It's very, very muddy and I know however muddy it is for us it's even more muddy for you," he told the crowd. "So thanks for staying and being so enthusiastic!"

The audience clearly did their best to move their feet in the muddy conditions to the likes of 'Us V Them' and 'Daft Punk Is Playing At My House', which Murphy seemed to appreciate.

"I'm an arsehole, but not the kind of arsehole who says, 'You're the greatest crowd' every time he plays," he explained. "But so far you're the best crowd we've had at Reading!"

Murphy even gave out some advice during his set, appropriately enough before 'All My Friends'.

"Take the water [from the bouncers]," he told fans right at the front as the crowd swelled behind them. "What other advice? Have safe sex. Don't go on a date with anyone you wouldn't marry!"

Following the likes of 'Tribulations' and 'Movement', the band wrapped the set up with 'Yeah'.

LCD Soundsystem played:

'Us V Them'
'Drunk Girls'
'Pow Pow'
'Daft Punk Is Playing At My House'
'All My Friends'
'I Can Change'
