The Cribs closed this year's Camden Crawl weekender in London with a packed headline set at KOKO last night (May 6).

Playing a selection of tracks from new release 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull', including recent single 'Come On, Be A No-One', 'Anna' and set-opener 'Chi-Town' as well as tracks from their previous four albums, the Wakefield trio rounded off a triumphant day with a crowd-pleasing slot, culminating in 'City Of Bugs', from 'Ignore The Ignorant'.

Earlier in the day Spector, Glasvegas and Niki And The Dove all played at the same venue, whilst elsewhere on the crawl the likes of Peace, Gaz Coombes and Toy all performed.

The Cribs played:

'Chi-Town'
'I'm A Realist'
'Cheat On Me'
'Come On Be A No-One'
'Hey Scenesters!'
'Anna'
'Back To The Bolthole'
'Mirror Kissers'
'Jaded Youth'
'Another Number'
'Be Safe'
'Glitters Like Gold'
'Men's Needs'
'We Were Aborted'
'City Of Bugs'


Saturday (May 5) saw sets from the likes of Veronica Falls, Fixers, Actress and Willy Moon across the area's various venues.

The Big Pink played a 40-minute support set at KOKO, offering up a host of material from recent album 'Future This' and culminating in a crowd sing-along of 'Dominos' and an extended, synth-heavy version of 'Lose Your Mind', whilst The Futureheads headlined the night with an a capella set drawn from newest album 'Rant'.

Battling an unwelcoming and inebriated crowd, the Mackem four-piece ran through a selection of covers and old hits including the band's own 'Carnival Kids' and 'Decent Days and Nights', Television Personalities' 'A Picture of Dorian Gray' and Kelis hit 'Acapella'. They also welcomed a choir onstage for old standard 'Summer Is Icumen In', to relatively unimpressed reactions.

With audible boos resonating from the back, it was only a final, banjo-led run through of 'Hounds Of Love' that seemed to satisfy the throng, who, by all accounts, had expected the band to play a full electric set.
