Golden Nuggets

So Reading Festival was everything I'd hoped it would be. Myself and drinking buddy, Massive Patten, polished off a litre of vodka in record time whilst drinking buddy number two, Manus, had downed a bottle of fake Bailey's before we'd even reached the festival site. A messy day hanging out with friends in the guest area and trying to blag steaks ensued, accompanied by massive sets from Get Cape, Dizzee Rascal and many more. Taking Back Sunday were disappointed and stuck a large rusty nail into my teenage emo memories. The bastards. The highlight, however, was of course Pulled Apart By Horses. Drawing the largest crowd of the day to the BBC Introducing stage they ripped through their short set cracking out all of their hits-to-be, finishing on forthcoming single 'Meat Balloon', of which you can watch a video, below:

At the end you might notice singer Tom with a lovely streak of pukey dribble hanging down from his mouth after some poor, unsuspecting sole in the crowd was drenched. Too much booze? Too many drugs? The heat? What made him so sick? Talking after the gig I posed the quetion: "No no... I had Golden Nuggets for breakfast." Rock and roll.
