Yes, I really like that new transition they've been doing from Spaceman into Trimm Trabb.

I absolutely loved the visuals for Ong Ong. The stage set as a whole, with the massive screens, was absolutely brilliant when it was properly made use of.

"we are playing hyde park again cos we got a new album"

they played the exact same set from the last 3 hyde park shows and sneaked in 5 songs from the new album and they didnt even play pyongyang or there are too many of us

wasnt really impressed, the album was meh but i still wanted to hear a lot of those songs live

Pleased to hear your opinions are still worthy of their own threads rather than part of others like the Hyde Park thread.

This should be in the Hyde park thread.

Hi Mark!
I saw you in Hyde Park after Metronomy did their show. You were 7-8 meters behind where I was, but it was hard for me to say hello from the 2nd row.

Blimey!! So close! There were quite a few people there! It was great at the front, but I certainly felt it afterwards! :lol:

thespider wrote:The gig was brilliant and definitely better than Hyde Park 2012. The crowd was noticably smaller which made it more enjoyable for me. Less crowds is always a good thing, up to a point. The sound was much better and clearly being able to play new, fresh material galvanized the band. Ong Ong is up there with their very best festival sing a longs.

Support bands: Drenge were good. Didn't like Metronomy myself, boring. The Horrors were worth watching and Kitty Davis and Lewis were good....and nice to look at ;)
Yeah, the sound was excellent.

Jupiter & Okwess International were the best support band imo, but I enjoyed The Horrors and Metronomy too. Drenge not too much really.

The highlights for me were:

Go Out
Lonesome Street
Badhead
Out Of Time
Beetlebum
Trimm Trabb (I touched Damon twice haha :lol: :D )
He Thought Of Cars
Trouble In The Message Centre
Tender
Parklife (with Phil Daniels)
Ong Ong
To The End
This Is A Low
Stereotypes
Girls & Boys
For Tomorrow
The Universal

Obviously I wanted to listen to Pyongyang and Mirrorball, but I knew it would not going to happen that day.
