Maximo Park were onstage before headliners James on Friday, June 10th.
You’ll find Maximo Park, The Charlatans and much more here in our highlights from last week’s Heritage Live event.
We caught Maximo Park in another festival setting last year at Isle Of Wight, finding it to be one of that weekend’s highlights:
“It’s still in the Big Top where we really get to remember what the right side of the noughties looked like,” our review reads.
“Maximo Park always had some of its best tunes; smart but catchy, story-telling but mass-appealing, art-school but unpretentious. Most of them are here; an exhilarating opening of Girls Who Play Guitars; one of that decade’s greatest singles, Going Missing; the ridiculously grand pop of Our Velocity and Apply Some Pressure.”
“The difference though is this year’s Nature Always Wins. Into their third decade, it’s one the best albums of the band’s career, and it’s that because they’ve dealt with the ageing process better than any of their contemporaries.”
“Out of the nightclub and into the family home, Maximo Park’s habitat has changed, but the virtues of those early favourites have come with them.”
