As they launch into Fishman, another surprise guest makes an entrance – jumping into the distorted guitar chords and slowed up drums is good pal Nathan, extremely merry and well refreshed, can in hand, cheerfully pelting the crowd with plastic fish. It’s hilarious and so much fun. After this slice of comedy gold we are into the final few songs, a blissful instrumental piece (False Profits), and finishing up with Inspector, Mother and Keep Us Down, which turns a mini festival into a mini riot, but in the best possible sense of the term. Fast, furious and the perfect way to end.
I haven’t enjoyed myself so much in ages, the atmosphere was chilled out and welcoming, the team had gone out of their way to pay attention to detail, and Square Wild’s set was one of the most entertaining I’ve seen! Their quirkiness, originality and sense of fun sets them apart from their peers. Go and see them if you get the chance, I promise you’ll come out with a smile on your face!
