The Stranglers Cover The Kinks

August 18, 2008
The Stranglers Cover The KinksThe Stranglers covered The Kinks ‘All Day and All Night’ this afternoon in the glorious sunshine of the V Festival Chelmsford site.

Baz Warne performed vocal duties for the impressive cover of the song before cheekily telling the crowd ‘cheer the fuck up, it’s sunny’.

The band tore through an array of hits including ‘Peaches’, ‘No More Heroes’ and ‘Golden Brown’.

Kicking off things on the second day of the festival, the Punk veterans provided an energetic and much needed kick up the arse for the hungover festival-goers.

Much of the crowd were heard mumbling that the band should have headlined in some capacity, whether it be on the main stage of a smaller stage, either way the band certainly set the bench mark for the day.
