Day 158 Biffy Clyro – Biblical

Last night Zane Lowe announced that Biffy Clyro have finally made it to the hallowed ground of ‘festival headliner’, a space occupied by only a privileged few as they prepare to headline Reading and Leeds for the first time in August. Although through the medium of twitter there has been some complaint, the majority see this headline-pick as a popular one, along with myself. Having followed Biffy for years now, I managed to see them at Reading Festival 2009 and they played a belter of a set. Marching on stage with bright pink trousers, no t-shirt and bleach blond hair, lead singer Simon Neil looked more like Jesus than a rockstar, but he played that part nicely too. I for one (if I do manage to attend this year) believe that this appointment is well deserved, signalling that right now is Biffy Clyro’s time to reign supreme. Accompanying my soppy declaration of love is Biblical, a classic rock anthem from the bands brand new (and number 1 in the UK) album ‘Opposites’. Full of towering guitar chords, a cheesy choral backing and that classic Scottish twang, Biblical may be one of Biffy’s best songs in years.
