Super Furry Animals treated fans to a career-spanning at their outdoor London show on Saturday (July 18).
The Welsh band’s Somerset House gig, watched by the likes of Cornershop, Goldie Lookin Chain and former Spacemen 3 singer Sonic Boom, kicked off with five of the their best-known singles, including the UK Top 20 hits ‘Juxtapozed With U’ and ‘Golden Retriever’.
SFA also played seven songs from current album ‘Dark Days/Light Years’, including ‘Inaugural Trams’, whose studio version features a German rap from Franz Ferdinand’s Nick McCarthy. As he couldn’t make it on the evening, singer Gruff Rhys, who was celebrating his birthday, held up a picture of the star to huge cheers.
The set’s real surprise was the rarely-performed ‘Blerwytirhwng?’, which features on the band’s 2004 singles compilation ‘Songbook’, as well as the 1998 B-sides collection ‘Out Spaced’.
The track originally featured on SFA’s 1995 debut EP ‘Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyndrobwllantysiliogogogochynygofod (In Space)’.
