London Popfest 2010

London Popfest 2010 - 2

Last Sunday, I had the honour to play London Popfest 2010. And I played on the same day as three fab bands, Leaving Mornington Crescent, Horse Shoes and The Wake. Yes, that The Wake! :-O

Leaving Mornington Crescent - 1

First on were Swedish razorpop stars, Leaving Mornington Crescent. I love LMC’s mix of 60s’ girlpop and Buzzcocks, I love their short, punchy songs and I love their MPC drummer. Mmm…

Then I played and I had so much fun! The audience was really friendly and I felt a proper sense of connection, despite it being a bigger venue than I’m used to playing. I talked to loads of lovely people after and even sold some records. :-)

Horse Shoes

Next were Horse Shoes who played a set of dreamy, summery songs with innocent melodies that reminded me of early Field Mice.

The Wake

Last on were The Wake. It felt quite bizarre that I was standing, watching The Wake, a band I’ve listened to for years. They were amazing. Very raw and full of heart, it was a singalong set.

Thanks to everyone at Popfest for putting me on, I had so much fun playing. And thanks to you if you were in the audience that night, I’d give you all hugs if I could!
