THISIS16 – Up on the Roof, August ’11

Another weekend afternoon on the roofs of Hackney kicked off with the sloppy, hungover, power pop of The London Fields. Swansea Recreation Centre popped up on the bill with an impressive selection of jagged, dreamy melodies and some pretty natty threads. Headliners? Comet Sands and their massive psychade rock hooks. Plus CS frontman, Jack, smashed up his guitar in the kitchen. Pretty rock ‘n’ bowl.

As usual there was BBQ, drinks and an excellent view of the trains making their way between the house backs and chimney stacks of London Fields. But you already knew that, right?
