The King Blues were introduced to me one morning by Jo Whiley, with “Boulders”. Soon I came to love the band – anthemic songs for the late 2000s.
Live, they certainly are, er, lively. With guitars held together with duct tape they managed to have more energy than is strictly right on a Saturday afternoon at 2pm.
Closing out with a cover of Dizee Rascals “Bonkers” and their own huge hit “Get the Girl, Save the World” (for which they were joined by Master Shortie), they certainly got the Swindon Massive going.
You can catch a range of pictures and reviews over at BBC Radio 1′s rather good Big Weekend site. A few of my pictures after the jump.
