We Are Scientist Joined By Editors At Reading

We Are Scientists were joined today (August 23) at their Reading Festival gig by fellow mainstage act Editors' Chris Urbanowicz covering Ace Of Bass' number one pop hit "All That She Wants."

Speaking from the stage prior to playing the 1993 classic, WaS' Chris Cain said mockingly that the crowd could now say that 'they had seen Editors and didn't have to stay'.

He also joked that the cheesy pop track was the Editors guitarist's 'favourite song' and that as "his band won't play it, we're doing him a favour."

We Are Scientists played to a faithful audience who sang along to tracks like "Chick Lit" and "Ram It Home" and despite having a slight techinal hitch with their drums halfway through were cheered throughout.

The tech guy who came to fix the drum kit was mocked by band member Keith Murray who said "Who's this guy, he's trying to take souvenirs!"
