It was left to James to bring the day to a close and try to salvage some final pleasure from the chaos. A band that carry the song “Getting Away With It (All Messed Up) as a theme, opened with that very track as if to reference what had gone before. Despite being clearly frustrated with the whole event, Tim Booth and company strived to put on a good show. Saul complained they’d had to drop songs from the set list and had to be calmed down by the band’s lead man. They still smiled all through the show and the sense of relief they actually got on stage was obvious within the James faithful. Tim got close to the crowd on numerous occasions but there was to be no crowd surfing despite the inclusion of Curse Curse in the set. They made the best of, you can rely on them for that. Tim was due to return for the Sunday evening with Hacienda Classical but the cancellation of the festival for the day put a halt to that.
