Patrick Wolf took to the Radio 1/NME Stage for his lunchtime set today (July 9) at T In The Park in a kilt which, he told NME, he had bought from his local junk shop for the festival.

While onstage, Wolf explained to the crowd that though he had planned to be a ‘real Scotsman’ and go pant-less under the traditional piece of clothing, the way the stage was set up had prevented him from doing so.

"I was gonna do the whole hog, but I realised the angle you were going to get,” he said in reference to the contents of his kilt, when sitting down at his harp before playing ‘Bermondsey Street’.

“You see how high I am onstage,” he explained to NME after the show, “people would just be looking a penis rather than a microphone.”

When asked if he knew what clan’s tartan he was wearing, he said: “I don’t know what it is but a lot of the bagpipe people here are wearing exactly the same one – maybe it’s a T In The Park tartan, I’m not sure. It was from the place where I buy all the furniture for my house.”

Wolf also told NME his reasons for running into the audience during the set: “I recognised a lot of my Scottish ‘Wolf Pack’ in the crowd, so I just wanted to jump into the crowd and make love.”

Patrick Wolf played:

‘Armistice’
‘House’
‘Bluebells’
‘Time Of My Life’
‘The Libertine’
‘Bermondsey Street’
‘Together’
‘The City’
