Leftfield return for RockNess after decade’s absence

Influential electronic pioneers Leftfield are marking their return with a live performance at this summer’s RockNess festival - their first announced appearance for over 10 years.

nfluential electronic pioneers Leftfield are marking their return with a live performance at this summer’s RockNess festival - their first announced appearance for over 10 years.

Hailed as one of the most influential exponents of electronica, Leftfield were one of the first such acts of the 90s to crossover into the mainstream, leading the way for artists including The Prodigy, Underworld and The Chemical Brothers. RockNess 2010 takes place at Dores near Inverness from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 June.

RockNess festival Director Jim King said: “We’re been trying to get Leftfield to do some shows for years and now it’s actually going to happen.

“Ask any electronic band who was an inspiration for them and Leftfield will always be listed. I was fortunate to see them live over 10 years ago and if you think The Prodigy are loud then you won’t know what hit you when these guys kick in.”

The band’s debut album Leftism was hailed as “one of the 20 greatest albums of all time” by Q, with guest vocalists including John Lydon for their startling hit Open Up.

King added: “They just have everything in their locker from the pounding bass lines of Phat Planet to the pioneering and visionary beauty of Melt. Get online now and reconnect with the band that unquestionably defined the music of a whole generation.”

Adding further excitement is the announcement that drum and bass duo Chase & Status will be joining the bill along with German techno titan Boys Noize.

These latest acts augment the already confirmed RockNess line-up which to date includes The Strokes, Friendly Fires, Soulwax, 2 Many Djs, Annie Mac, Club 75 featuring Xavier De Rosnay (Justice), Busy P, Cassius And Dj Mehdi and Rob Da Bank.

It's okay. The elitists of this board are also really late on the Orbital, TCB and Leftfield's bandwagons.

I was actually the first person ever to listen to Orbital. FIRST EVER.

Excellent Gribbz.

I fully accepted that they were before my time and I'd never have a shot at seeing them. This is surreal. Though outside of a big festival like Coachella *coughcough* the chances of a stateside anything seem extremely slim at best. Heck, who knows how many gigs in Europe they've got lined up....

Very much so at that. It's going to require a lot of patience though... tougher knowing there's a chance.

Uh-oh, looks like it'll be Leftfield-lite.

Daley to sit out Leftfield comeback (http://www.digitalspy.com/music/news/a202493/daley-to-sit-out-leftfield-comeback.html)

But they allude to more dates on the horizon!!


Paul Daley will not rejoin Leftfield when they make their live return this summer.

The musician, half of the duo with bandmate Neil Barnes, will sit out the comeback, which includes a headline slot at this year's Rock Ness event on June 11 to 13 in Scotland.

Daley explained: "I'm about to embark on a solo career with the release of my first solo album. I also want to continue concentrating on my DJing work, so I've decided I won't be joining Neil on stage for the Leftfield dates this year.

"I want to thank all the fans for their past support and all the people who will be hearing and seeing the band for the first time."

Barnes added: "Leftfield Live was an incredible experience for everyone involved. We really pushed the boat out and created something live that reflected how we felt a real live show should be. Everyone who saw it will know what I mean.

"The opportunity to take the band out again once more with the sound system and some of the original singers and perform the songs again to a whole new audience is an opportunity that I simply couldn't turn down.

"The good will surrounding the live show has overwhelmed me. The expectation is tremendous I simply can't wait to blow everybody away. Literally!"

Plural, plural is good.

Yes, more dates. If they come within any reasonable distance, I will be seeing these guys. Sahara headliner next year, please.
