T In The Park NME Report

NME are quick off the mark with a report from doves T in the Park set:

Doves play sun-drenched T In The Park show

Big crowd turn out for Manchester indie veterans

Doves played a set of epic pounding indie-rock in the Scottish sunshine at T In The Park this afternoon (July 12), playing on the NME / Radio One stage.

Performing in front of a huge sign with their band name written in orange letters on it, the four-some were delighted with the sunny conditions, repeatedly referencing the glorious weather which followed showers earlier in the day.

“The sun’s come out, are you up for it?” bassist/singer Jimi Goodwin asked the large crowd as opener ‘Jetstream’ kicked in, prompting huge cheers.

The Manchester band went on to play cuts from their recent album ‘Kingdom Of Rust’ plus older fan favourites including ‘Pounding’ and set-closer ‘There Goes The Fear’.

“That crazy old sun, eh?” Goodwin laughed before playing ‘Pounding’. “Are you having a good time, T?”

Later in the set he made a slight set-list mistake. “This one’s called ‘Kingdom Of Fife’, he said, having changed the name of their song ‘Kingdom Of Rust’ to reference the local area. “Er, no it’s not actually, it’s ‘10.03’,” he added, checking the set running order. “That one was up next”.

Doves ended their show with a rapturously-received rendition of ‘There Goes The Fear’ before heading off to make way for the next NME / Radio One stage act, Lily Allen.
