We went to the Wireless Festival in Hyde Park yesterday to see Modest Mouse (sadly they didn’t play), Queens of the Stone Age (they rocked) and White Stripes. White Stripes were magnificent – one of the best times I’ve seen them and they’ve always been good. To come on after a full on rock band like QotSA, with just a guitar, keyboard and drums, and to make a bigger sound was frankly amazing.
We managed to catch another band – a New Zealand band we’ve never heard of called Connan and the Mockasins who were absolutely bonkers but who turned in a great performance. Very entertaining and I’d very much like to see them again.
I managed to record a teeny tiny clip of the White Stripes playing “Jolene” on my camera. I can’t say as the audio is that great but it gives you a great feel for the atmosphere at the festival. Enjoy.
