The Cribs played Leeds Festival this afternoon (August 27) - kicking off their last weekend of gigging action before they take a break and get to work on their fifth album.

With tomorrow's Reading Festival the last live date on their schedule, the weekend marks a sign-off for their fourth album, last year's 'Ignore The Ignorant'.

The three Jarman brothers and guitarist Johnny Marr played on the Main Stage, with a setlist heavy with songs from that album, plus fan favourites including 'Men's Needs' and 'Mirror Kissers'.

"These are our last shows for a long time, you won't see us for a bit," bassist/singer Gary Jarman told the crowd before the group closed their set with 'City Of Bugs'.

The Cribs played:

'We Were Aborted'
'Hey Scenesters'
'We Share The Same Skies'
'Cheat On Me'
'Another Number'
'Mirror Kissers'
'Be Safe'
'I'm A Realist'
'Our Bovine Public'
'Men's Needs'
'City Of Bugs'
