The Long Blondes

Much touted by everyone from NME to Guardian sportswriter Rob Smyth, the Long Blondes were the first of the large crop of Yorkshire bands to hit Reading. Their slightly fey sound puts you very much in mind of such mid-to-late 80s acts as the Shop Assistants, but the problem is that they are not even that interesting. Whilst songs like 'Divided By Motorways' and 'Weekend Without Makeup' have the crowd bouncing along happily, the fact remains that the most exciting thing that happens is when Kate Jackson's stiletto heel gets caught in the stage.
