by the time this entry posts, Friendly Fires will be probably getting ready somewhere in Inverness for their Friday slot at Rockness. however, the first festival they played in 2010 was actually Snowbombing in Mayerhofen, Austria. despite the location, somehow the entrepreneurial spirit of Britain won out, as someone figured out a flight/coach scheme that transported many Britons to the snowy(ish) location. watch from about 1 minute in for a brief interview. the look on Edd's face when the interviewer (female I might add) calls them 'the very gorgeous' is priceless. also 'annoying the locals' ranks high on the 'bless' factor.
