Band give the John Peel Stage a sneak preview of debut album
Blasting along at breakneck speed on the John Peel Stage, the band showcased several new tracks during their set.
With Yeah Yeah Yeahs playing at the same time – the San Diego group even joked about their “long-running rivalry” with the trio – the show initially had the feel of an intimate, secret gig, but those who turned up were rewarded with a sneak preview of songs in the running for the band’s debut.
The material included ‘More Or Less’, ‘Answer To Yourself’, ‘Dick And June’, ‘Losing Touch With My Mind’ and ‘Inside Job’, the latter played live for the first time ever.
With the crowd growing throughout the set, the garage-rockers finished up with storming versions of ‘Nitelife’ and ‘Parasites’.
The Soft Pack played:
‘On My Time’
‘Rite And Wrong’
‘More Or Less’
‘Call It A Day’
‘Answer To Yourself’
‘Dick And June’
‘Losing Touch With My Mind’
