We Are Scientists offered some dubious advice to crowd members tempted to throw urine at the band when they performed at Leeds Festival this afternoon (August 24).

The New York band, consisting of Chris Cain and Keith Murray, had an essential statistic for any would-be bottlers during their set on the Main Stage late this afternoon.

After 'Let's See It', bassist Chris Cain told the crowd: "For those of you thinking about throwing a bottle of piss, here's a little statistic. 85 per cent of all bottles of piss that people try and throw end up in the mouth of the thrower. I don't know why, maybe it's nerves. Or a slippery bottle."

The band performed a selection of tracks from their two major label albums, 'With Love And Squalor' and 'Brain Thrust Mastery' during the set, as well as a hair metal-style b-side 'Ram It Home'.

Before 'Cash Cow', Cain said: "This is a bit of a dance classic – how many of you are wearing shoes today?"

Singer and guitarist Keith Murray added: "I'm wearing shoes. If you're wearing shoes it'll be great, but if not it's gonna be a little uncomfortable."

The band ended their set with 'The Great Escape'.

We Are Scientists played:

'Ram It Home'
'Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt'
'Chick Lit'
'Let's See It'
'Cash Cow'
'Lethal Enforcer'
'It's A Hit'
'After Hours'
'The Great Escape'
