Stage: Reading, Dance stage
Time: Saturday, 3.25pm
Dress code: Black t-shirts and light boxes for neckwear.
In summary: A barrage of screeching, whirling, gothic dance music only loosely affiliated with the math-rock mantle to which Metronomy often get consigned. Joseph Mount is joined by Gabriel Stebbings on bass and Oscar Cash on the melodica, among other instruments, and despite the fact there's no live drummer, they rock harder than anyone else I've seen this weekend. Partly this is because of the bonus of playing a smaller stage: the sound is better and there aren't any volume restrictions as there are on the main stage.
Highlight: When they play You Could Easily Have Me, the sound explodes and the crowd goes wild. Closely followed by the choreographed dance moves the trio pull. Nothing more than fist-pumps and banging on chests but it humanises the band and gives the music a humorous edge that many of their peers lack.
Better than: Any fellow math-rock, techno-punk call-it-what-you-want peer band who take themselves too seriously.
Worse than: Seeing them play a later slot, when the graphics and light shows would have been shown off to their fullest.
Talking point: Excellent 1930s horror-movie styled graphics. Very Kraftwerk, but that's OK.
What he'll be up to this time next year: Remixer to the stars, Metronomy? More of the same, and he'll keep it low-key, no doubt.
