Band spark one of the biggest singalongs of the weekend
The band, who played a secret show in the bash’s former Lost Vagueness area in 2007, were officially billed this time, and treated the enormous crowd to a hit-laden set, as well as a clutch of tracks from their recently-released LP ‘The Liberty Of Norton Folgate’, and a cover of Max Romeo‘s dub reggae classic ‘I Chase The Devil’.
The group ended their set with a run through several of their most famous songs, beginning with their sole UK Number One, ‘House Of Fun’.
The whole of the field was dancing, and things hotted up even more when saxophonist Lee Thompson was suspended in mid-air during a version of 1980 single ‘Baggy Trousers’, recreating his role in its’ famous video.
But the biggest reception was reserved for 1981 hit ‘It Must Be Love’, sparking one of the weekend’s biggest singalongs.
