Kids In Glass Houses attack Stereophonics at T In The Park

Were the Welsh rockers having a pop at Kelly Jones?

Kids In Glass Houses played an energetic set in the King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent earlier this evening (July 11), during which they thanked the crowd for not watching “delusional fools” elsewhere at the festival.

Before playing ‘Dance All Night’, the lyrics of which mention Elvis Presley, frontman Aled Phillips verbally attacked rival bands on the festival bill who were on at the same time.

“Thanks for coming to see us, and not some delusional fool who thinks that Elvis isn’t dead,” Phillips said. “Elvis is dead. He ate too many burgers and had a heart attack.”

He may have been referring to fellow countrymen Stereophonics, who were on the Main Stage at the same time as their set, or to Scouting for Girls, who released a single titled ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’.

However, later in the set, following ‘Saturday’, Phillips praised one of the T In The Park headliners. “Are you looking forward to Rage Against The Machine?” he asked the crowd, who responded with loud cheers at the mention of tomorrow’s (July 12) headliners.

As well as dissing and praising other bands at the bash, Kids In Glass Houses played a high-octane show that attracted a large crowd to the tent.

The biggest sing-a-long of the set was reserved for single ‘Raise Hell’, with Phillips leaping into the crowd and letting a fan sing the chorus into the microphone.

The band ended their set with a frenetic version of ‘Give Me What I Want’.
