The Cribs began their UK tour at Cardiff's Swn festival this weekend, playing a career-spanning set including a number of old favourites and B-sides.

Headlining Cardiff’s University Student Union, the trio opened with recent single 'Come On, Be A No-One', taken from latest album 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull', before roaring through the rest of their 19-song slot. Later in the evening, Ryan Jarman told the crowd that he had just been diagnosed with asthma, but that the band would be playing their longest ever set regardless.

As well as offering up a host of fan-favourites including 'Mirror Kissers', 'Chi-Town' and debut-album offering 'Another Number', the band also included a number of rarities. 'Our Bovine Public' received its first outing in years, while the trio also performed B-side 'To Jackson'.

'Come On, Be A No-One'
'Our Bovine Public'
'Girls Like Mystery'
'We Share The Same Skies'
'Jaded Youth'
'I've Tried Everything'
'To Jackson'
'Back To The Bolthole'

'Men's Needs'

Earlier in the evening Sunderland quintet Frankie & the Heartstrings also played the venue, debuting a host of new tracks from their forthcoming second record - which is being produced by ex-Suede guitarist Bernard Butler – as well as debut album favourites 'Tender', 'Possibilities' and 'Hunger'.

The rest of the festival, which took place across a number of venues within the city, saw over a hundred bands perform over the event’s four-day stretch. Recent NME cover stars Palma Violets drew an impressive crowd for their evening set at Clwb Ifor Bach on Saturday, storming through their half-hour slot with singles 'Best of Friends' and 'Last Of The Summer Wine' as well as tracks from their debut LP, currently being produced by Pulp bassist Steve Mackey and set for release early next year.

Birmingham favourites Peace, who recently released 'EP Delicious' to rave reviews, also played the venue the following night, whilst the likes of Splashh, Bo Ningen, The Invisible and Welsh pop star Charlotte Church performed across the weekend.
