There’s another version from the other side of the stage over here.

Drowned in Sound has a review of the weekend that pretty much nails Dean’s Saturday night set…

Wareham then returns for a set largely consisting of relics from his back catalogue and it’s possibly the highlight of the entire weekend. Sounding in good voice, the likes of ‘Snowstorm’, ‘When Will You Come Home’ and ‘Strange’ genuinely reduce grown men to tears, whilst ‘Fourth Of July’ orchestrates the closest thing to a mosh pit Indietracks will ever see.

Originals: Waiting on a Friend by The Rolling Stones (covered by Luna)

Waiting on a Friend was on the last half-decent Rolling Stones album “Tattoo You” released in 1981, and is fine enough until the sax comes in. Apparently the song started in the sessions for Goats Head Soup in 1973 which may explain why it’s not too shabby.

Luna’s cover of Waiting on a Friend was released on Close Cover Before Striking in 2002

No sax crime in the Luna version
