Nightmare Before Christmas 2007, Friday: The Horrors

(Pavillion (sic) Stage)

The problem with Fridays at ATP style festivals is that I am always a bit *tired* after all the travelling, so I am not really able to give the bands my all. These fellows seemed endearingly energetic, kind of punky gothy jumpy and so on. They looked a good bit better dressed than some of the other bands who played over the weekend. I enjoyed what they played but would have liked to be able to pay more attention to it. Particular happiness came my way when they launched into a version of freakbeat classic 'Crawdaddy Simone' (hitherto known to me in the version by Joe Meek band The Syndicats).
