A 2007 success story

One of the stories of 2007's Leeds Festival was the amount of British bands that came of age even though their careers are still in relative infancy. One of the best examples of this were the Twang, who were tipped to reach for the skies at the start of the year, and are just about getting a good grip by the end of the festival season. They packed the Radio 1 Stage, and treated their large following to most of debut album 'Love It When I Feel Like This'.

Opening with 'The Neighbour', they powered through forty-five minutes in triumphant style. Clearly made up to be playing to so many people, the band dedicated top ten smash 'Wide Awake' to each and everyone of those in attendance because "there's so many other bands you could have seen".

The set reached its greatest high when 'Either Way' was played, with every line being shouted back at the Birmingham boys. Album opener 'Ice Cream Sundae' and new single 'Two Lovers' also stood out as memorable moments.

The Twang closed their boisterous set by firing white ticker tape over the crowd during 'Cloudy Room', a fitting way to round off an excellent performance.
