THEY'RE BACK! REUNITED LEGENDS PROVIDE THE SHOW OF THE DAY


DESPITE THE 30-degree heat, you'd be forgiven for thinking a snowstorm had hit Faith No

More. Clad completely in white - the backdrop, the amps, even the roadies - the only splash of colour comes from the flowers that line the stage. At a festival where the predominant colour is black, trust Faith No More - who have gleefully gone against the grain for three

decades - to do the opposite. That they open their set with a new song, Motherfucker, rather

than an old favourite further proves the band's disdain for playing it safe.

There's plenty of subversive hits to be had, however. From Epic to closer We Care A Lot, the only thing more staggering than FNM's songs is the vigour with which they perform. While some acts reform and are clearly just a shadow of their former selves, Faith No More have picked up exactly where they left off when they split in 1998. This much is evident in the other new song they play this evening, Superhero, a track bubbling with malevolence and a promise of magic from their forthcoming Sol Invictus album.

Set of the day, hands down.
