REVIEWS: Truck Festival - UK



"…Essentially, though, we were just killing time until the two best acoustic performances of the weekend. The first, perhaps unexpectedly, was This Town Needs Guns, a band not easy to imagine in a stripped-down fashion. Playing in the festival merch tent/record store with just an acoustic guitar, bass, vocals and very occasional glockenspiel, we were treated to different interpretations of “Crocodile” and “Badger” (I think) from Animals and their older live staple “Want to Come Back to My Room and Listen to Some Belle and Sebastian?”. It was ‘”Zebra,” however, the rarely-played, eerily gorgeous glock-led closer to Animals that made the short set worth sitting bunched up on the floor of a sweaty tent for, along with tour stories about Native and, as always, Tim Collis’ almost inhuman talents. “


"… there seemed to be a real air of excitement from everyone in the audience about seeing - This Town Needs Guns. Truck regulars who keep getting better, they write intelligent and challenging music for the masses. Although seeing a ridiculous number of crowd surfers and a real good-natured moshpit break out to them was the last thing to be expected. But it was a sight, and indeed a band, to
behold.
