Singer Sian Ahern, a prot�g� of Spiritualized�s Jason Pierce, was battling a sore throat, and swigged strong medicine between songs to battle her ailment.

However, the state of her throat didn�t affect the impact of the band�s performance, and Ahern led the troupe through a four-song set of impressive bluster-pop.

Ending the set with �Motionless�, the band were immediately mobbed by fans as they laid down their instruments, with one even attempting to have a swig of Ahern�s medicine.

The Sian Alice Group played:

�Sleep�

�Contours�
