Yeah Yeah Yeahs

If ever a band should be locked in a studio and never allowed out on the road, it is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Granted, their early success was founded as much on Karen O's eclectic dress sense and wild on-stage behaviour, but the problem is that she now seems to have forgotten that she needs to do more than just writhe around on the floor whilst wearing the first 15 things that came to hand that day and to actually perform and, dammit, SING. The curiously muddy sound mix doesn't help, but for much of the time O is simply inaudible, largely due to her inability to keep the microphone anywhere near her mouth for more than two words. Even a mid set blast of 'Date With The Night' 'Pin' and 'Gold Lion' cannot improve matters and the band end up as the disappointment of the entire festival.
