End of the Road 2012, Friday – Peggy Sue
Peggy Sue packed out the Tipi Tent, as you can see above. Katy Young and Rosa Slade’s voices are extraordinarily powerful and their angular pop is perfectly held together by some subtle, tricksy, drumming and, on this occasion, a borrowed bass person (didn’t catch his name, sorry). What started as a two-piece works pretty well as a full band, and it’s interesting to see how this might develop. Peggy Sue recently played at a screening of Kenneth Anger’s Scorpio Rising and have just released an album of covers of the tracks, called Peggy Sue Play The Songs of Scorpio Rising. It’s really good: here’s ‘(Love is Like a) Heatwave’ and the video for ‘Hit The Road Jack’, which they played here, to the audience’s obvious enjoyment.

Beer note: Don’t know if I had any while listening to this lot, but Friday was the day I discovered Tring Brewery’s Mansion Mild, a perfect afternoon pint.
