So many people are jumping on the Pendulum bandwagon these days that it's be difficult to pigeon hole your average Pendulum fan.

On the one hand you have your drum and bass enthusiasts and indie crossovers, with the rest of the crowd made up of people you'd normally spot collapsing outside your local dive after a hard night dancing to the Sugababes.

But when Pendulum finally take to the stage at the Custard Factory (at about 1am), all parties converge to the frenetic sound of Pendulum.

The event, broadcast by Radio 1, gave Annie Mac the perfect opportunity to warm up the crowd, and show how she's just about the finest (and hottest) DJ going around right now.

It'd be easy for Pendulum to cut corners and strain in their live performances. However, the band now settled in the U.K and signed to Warners, really effectuate their sound, combining heavy drum and bass, thrown into the mixer, with a bit of trance and punk added too.

Pendulum's energy doesn't flag once during a two-hour set, stomping through most of the tracks from their recent LP 'Hold Your Colour'.

Drum and bass was supposed to die with Roni Size. Make no mistake, Pendulum are resurrecting the genre. And if they don't take you with their class, they'll take it with brute force instead.
