It wasn’t quite a riot, and any truly angry mobs were kept away – but three lucky ladies from Ely had to be parachuted back to Planet Earth after meeting Kaiser Chief’s front man Ricky Wilson in Newmarket recently.
Emma Bibby, Helen Davies and Helen Trill had travelled to Newmarket to see the Kaiser Chiefs headlining at Newmarket Nights on July 15.
Helen Trill said: “Ricky is lovely, he is my old client from when I worked at Rolex in London. They played a really good set – love their new single ‘Parachute’.
“We met Peanut the keyboardist and VJ the drummer! We didn’t win anything on the races but my brother did! We had a great evening.”
The Leeds indie group first shot to fame in 2005 with “I Predict A Riot”, which shot to number nine in the charts and was followed by “Oh My God”, “Everyday I Love You Less and Less” and 2007 chart topper “Ruby”.
Their 2014 album “Education, Education, Education & War” in 2014 smashed into the number one spot on the UK album chart on release. The record became their second number one long play, following 2007’s “Yours Truly Angry Mob” and became their fifth top 10 album.
