Teenage Fanclub help Truck Festival celebrate its 13th birthday
[b]Teenage Fanclub[/b] closed the second and final day of the [b]Truck Festival[/b] in [b]Oxfordshire[/b] last night (July 25) with a 20-song set as the event marked its 13th birthday.
[b]Fucked Up[/b], [b]Pulled Apart By Horses[/b] and [b]Blood Red Shoes[/b] also played at day two of the festival.
Performing the event's main stage, the [b]Glasgow[/b] band had played a career-spanning set, which featured six songs from their new album [b]'Shadows'[/b].
The headliners were clearly a popular choice, with fans in the crowd waving banners declaring [b]T.F.C. I love you[/b] at the [b]Glasgow[/b] band throughout their set.
[b]Teenage Fanclub[/b] played:
'Sometimes I Don't Need To Believe In Anything'
'It's All In My Mind'
'Don't Look Back'
'I Don't Want Control Of You'
'Sweet Days Waiting'
'Your Love Is The Place Where I Come From'
'Ain't That Enough'
'When I Still Have Thee'
'Can't Feel My Soul'
'I Need Direction'
'Today Never Ends'
Earlier in the day, [b]Future Of The Left[/b] played in the event's [b]Barn[/b] venue, performing crowd favourites including [b]'Manchasm'[/b] and [b]'The Hope That House Built'[/b].
[b]Andy Falkous[/b] joked to the audience: "Hello [b]Truck Festival[/b] on this Sunday. You should be ashamed of yourself - on the Lord's day!"
Meanwhile, [b]Blood Red Shoes[/b] were joined on the [b]Truck Stage[/b] by [b]Pulled Apart By Horses[/b] at the climax of their set, when both bands took apart the drumkit and dived into the crowd. [b]Pulled Apart By Horses[/b] had earlier played their own set on the [b]Barn Stage[/b], with singer [b]Tom Hudson[/b] telling the sweaty crowd: "It's great to be back! The smell of beautiful shit in the cow shed."
Elsewhere duo [b]Summer Camp[/b] played the [b]Village Pub[/b] stage, opening with [b]'Ghost Train'[/b] after taking to the stage slightly later than planned. "Sorry about the wait, it's all to build tension," joked singer [b]Elizabeth Sankey[/b].
Later she appealed to the audience for help: "We were at [b]Secret Garden Party[/b] yesterday and I think our bassist and keyboardist need some tender loving care, so if anyone's a masseuse or has got a hangover cure, they need you!"
