    By all accounts, The Strokes stormed through their first Irish date in years, at the Electric Picnic festival on Saturday, 31st August.

    The band played a selection of tracks from their classic Is This It? debut album, as well as a selection of the best off their other records.

    We were pleased to find out guitarist Nick Valensi chose to play a Rivolta Combinata VII in Acero Glow for this gig - previously, he'd played a Combinata VII in Autunno Burst with his other band, CRX.

    Here's a selection of some pics from the gig:
