It says a lot that Noah and Whale can reduce a crowd of thousands to gibbering, incoherent, grinning fools with a collection of songs that aren't even their best.
Chatting to two lovely girls at the barrier, both of whom are adamant that Metronomy will provoke some sort of conversion in your editor's attitude from 'mild indifference' to 'rabid fandom' during the next 45 minutes. I respectfully disagree...
