Bromheads Jacket

Fate has been kind to Sheffield's Bromheads Jacket. Given only Belle & Sebastian, Secret Machines or Bouncing Souls (see below) for competition, they draw one of the biggest crowds seen in the Carling tent and they do not disappoint. From the moment they stroll onto the stage and announce "Don't drink Carling, it's sh*t" they have the audience in the palms of their hands and they refuse to let go. Their lyrics have more humour in one song than their Sheffield mates Arctic Monkeys can manage in a whole album - for example the hilarious "Trip To The Golden Arches" - and they have better tunes, too. Something very special indeed.
