Faith No More brought the first day of Download to a close tonight (June 12) with an epic comeback set on the Main Stage.

Opening with a tongue-in-cheek Reunited, which saw massive cheers on its chorus of “we are reunited”, the Californian quartet played a hit-laden set from their 26 year history as well as a brief rendition of Lady GaGa’s hit Pokerface.

The band, who broke up in 1998, all wore black suits except for frontman Mike Patton, who walked on stage with a cane and was dressed entirely in red.

Patton was on eccentric form, leaping around the stage, wielding his cane about and engaging with the crowd with banter such as:

“Download, are you down? Are you loaded? Man that was terrible”.

Land of Sunshine saw him alternating between a microphone and megaphone, on crowd-pleaser Easy he wrapped himself in the red curtains hanging around the stage whilst on finisher We Care A Lot he took to singing while doing sit-ups.

At one point Patton asked the crowd to put up their hands if it was their first time seeing them, obviously overwhelmed by the huge wave of arms in the air he said:

“Fuck! Are we good? We’re ready to pick up our social security cheques so we’re a bit insecure here”

The band received huge cheers for classic songs such as From Out of Nowhere and Be Aggressive; while The Commodores cover Easy saw lighters go up in the air.

Faith No More are expected to play the Reading and Leeds festivals this August.

Faith No More played:

‘Real Thing’
‘From Out of Nowhere’
‘Land of Sunshine’
‘Chinese Arithmetic’
‘Surprise! You’re Dead!’
‘Last Cup of Sorrow’
‘Midlife Crisis’
‘Cuckoo For Caca’
‘The Gentle Art of Making Enemies’
‘King For a Day’
‘Be Aggressive’
‘Mark Bowen’
‘Chariots of Fire/ Stripsearch’
‘We Care A Lot’

in tempi di ritorni mi permetto di dire campari spruzzato col bianco…

Blur made their live comeback tonight (June 13), playing an intimate “friends and family” gig at the East Anglian Railway Museum near Colchester.

Playing their first gig as a four-piece in nearly a decade, the band – who first confirmed their reformation to NME.COM last year – performed in a converted goods shed at Chappel And Wakes Colne just outside the town centre, the scene of the band’s first ever public performance 20 years earlier.

“If you could make your way into the hall,” frontman Damon Albarn instructed the crowd, which included long-term producer Stephen Street, as they kicked off with first ever single ‘She’s So High’, before dipping into two tracks from 1994 album ‘Parklife’ in the form of ‘Girls And Boys’ and ‘Tracy Jacks’.

“It’s a bit different to last time we played here,” Albarn later told the audience ahead of a rocked-up version of ‘Jubilee’, referring to the birthday party the group originally performed at the museum while they were still called Seymour.

“Thanks for coming to see us play,” the singer told the fans ahead of ‘Trimm Trabb’. “I don’t know if it’s been 10 years, but 10 years is an easy number!”

Lead singer duties were then handed over to guitarist Graham Coxon for ‘Coffee & TV’, before he shared vocals with Albarn on ‘Tender’.

They then tore through a faithful rendition of Number One single ‘Country House’ rather than the revamped version the band had previously hinted at playing.

Later, the four-piece performed single ‘Parklife’ with Albarn, bouncing around the stage, delivering all the vocals in the absence of actor Phil Daniels, who is expected to link-up with them at later dates.

Playing a spirited version of ‘End Of A Century’, Blur then ploughed into ‘To The End’.

Ending their initial set with ‘This Is A Low’, the band quickly re-emerged to blast into ‘Popscene’.

‘Advert’ followed, with Albarn stage-diving into the audience and crowd surfing around during the instrumental section, before the band then showed off a version of ‘Song 2’ which saw them slowly build the drums up to the track’s usual frenetic speed.

Proving there are no hard feelings, Blur then performed ‘Out Of Time’, a track Coxon did not originally feature on due to his absence from the band during most of the ‘Think Tank sessions, though his spine-chilling guitar part aptly fitted into the song.

Fittingly, they followed it with ‘Battery In Your Leg’ – the one track on the same album the guitarist did perform on.

After a hand vote in the audience between ‘Sing’ and ‘Essex Dogs’, the latter, in its home county, predictably won, before the group wrapped up their two-hour set with ‘For Tomorrow’ and ‘The Universal’.

Blur played:

‘She’s So High’
‘Girls And Boys’
‘Tracy Jacks’
‘There’s No Other Way’
‘Trimm Trabb’
‘Coffee & TV’
‘Country House’
‘Charmless Man’
‘Colin Zeal’
‘Oily Water’
‘Chemical World’
‘Sunday Sunday’
‘End Of A Century’
‘To The End’
‘This Is A Low’
‘Song 2’
‘Out Of Time’
‘Battery In Your Leg’
‘Essex Dogs’
‘For Tomorrow’
‘The Universal’
