For somebody who specialises in the rich layered chilled out ambiance that Grouper proffer, she surely must have been disappointed to get the lead-off slot at this year's ATP Vs. The Fans Festival.

The first slot on the Central Stage is basically a warm-up for the sound engineers and the distorted, ethereal sound of her recent album, Dragging a Dead Deer Up A Hill sounded crackly and stagnant. In a smaller environment, she really would have prospered, but her voice and guitar were swallowed up.

If you saw this and wrote off Grouper - don't.

The album is really rather good.
