IRISH punk rockers Fontaines DC admitted they couldn't wait to get their hands on some Buckfast ahead of their TRNSMT set.

The band's Conor Curley joked: "I’m all hyped up on Glasgow. Can you buy Buckfast in the arena?

"I can’t wait to get the Buckfast in."

The rising punk band performed on the King Tuts stage at the Glasgow Green music festival yesterday fresh off their Glastonbury appearance.

Conor added: “We love Glasgow and we’re excited to see what the Glasgow festival atmosphere is like.

“The gigs we’ve played at King Tuts and stuff have been some of our favourites this last year”.

With TRNSMT being their only Scotland festival, the lads were itching to have a walkabout and soak up the unique Glasgow atmosphere.

Conor said: “We were driving up through town there and we drove past Central Station and saw hundreds of people come out. Everyone had Buckfast and bucket hats.”

He added: “I would love to get a line about Glasgow in the next album.

"I’ll have to convince the rest of them. I could do it about Buckfast - I’d get it in then.

“We asked our rider to have Buckfast - only when we played in Scotland.

"I’m from Monaghan in the North of Ireland, so I basically grew up on the stuff.

"If I went to the Buckfast abbey I’d lick the Monks feet - that’s how much I love Buckfast."

Review:  Verdict four stars

Pyros and mosh pits were the popular options of crowds at yesterday’s Fontaines DC. 

The Dublin punk rockers really brought the show, opening with Luke Kelly’s poem, “For What Died the Sons of Roisin”. It was if they were teasing the crowd, and before their arrival the chants of HWFG were building before their opening song Hurricane Laughter really hit with the turbulence of extreme weather. 

Playing a multitude of songs from their debut album Dogrel, favourites were hit “Big”, “Too Real” and “Sha Sha Sha”. Previously described as Post-Punk, Fontaine’s DC had the crowd of Gerry Cinnamon in terms of nationalistic sentiments but something completely unique in their performance. 

Fontaine’s DC are rockers, angry performers who get the crowd going. Lead Singer Grian lives up to his Ian Curtis comparison with his glitchy, focused stage mannerisms, telling the crowd they are the “best in the world” before asking someone in the front for a light for his cigarette. 

As all three frontmen, Grian, Curley and Deego took swigs from a bottle of Buckfast and smoked roll-ups from the stage, the audience was ablaze with both saltires, tri-colours (for the group sing about their native city in their native accents) and the ubiquitous TRNSMT pyros. Feet were flying as audience members crowd surfed and above them looked on Fontaines DC, nonchalant, unbothered, utterly cool.
