British Sea Power Get Great Escape Dancing

by | 21 May 2007

British Sea Power stole the show at Brighton's Great Escape festival this weekend.

The four-piece indie band, themselves hailing from Brighton, got the crowds dancing along at the Udderbelly venue on Saturday night.

Whether their strong welcome from the crowd was down to them playing inside the giant purple upside-down inflatable cow or the full nuclear suits they were wearing to end the set remains to be seen.

Also distinguishing themselves at the festival were Shrag, an all-female duo of teenagers "shouting about teenager issues" and We Are Performance, who featured a water-drenched singer and two sets of striking 80s leggings and shellsuits.

But the best time at the festival was most likely to be had at the afterparty, held at the Ocean Rooms. For eight hours from midnight partygoers were able to mill around stars from bands including the Magic Numbers, Razorlight and Super Furry Animals.

Those who missed out were left with little alternative for entertainment, however. Festival attendees were thrown out and forced to queue for later events before the fun could begin again.
