    Other bands on the bill included Wild Beasts, The Fall and Errors


    Performing in the light at the end of the long, narrow tunnel that is the street stage, Mogwai open with White Noise to reliably build their sound as thick as the growing numbers. With easily the biggest crowd of the day, views were restricted though luckily the magic of Mogwai is in their sound which was pristine, even if you spent their hour long set with your face wedged into the back of a barbour jacket. Amongst newer, decidedly more pop-sensible material, Auto Rock and Mogwai Fear Satan provide utterly sublime moments of euphoric bliss.
