Full video of Cherry's set-closing performance of Buffalo Stance

Undoubtedly one of our highlights of this year's Field Day festival was Neneh Cherry's Saturday set. Writing about it, tQ's Amy Pettifer said: "The best thing about watching her perform is the fact that you can see every layer of Cherry's musical and personal history writ large in a self-possessed, confident stage presence; a Buffalo girl, a Rasta and a rock hard punk at the heart of it all. She's clearly unconcerned with what a prolonged absence from the limelight might mean – music is part of her DNA and frankly, she can come and go as she effing pleases [...] While this half hour goes a long way toward proving that Neneh Cherry is irreducible to 'Buffalo Stance', she plays it anyway, yelling, 'This song is 25 years old and I'm 50.' If I'm half this cool at 50, I'll die happy."

Now, courtesy of the festival video and live streaming service Festivo TV, we've got a video of that closing performance of 'Buffalo Stance', which you can take a look at above. Not only that, but Field Day posted their official video last week, so avail yourself of that - along with our reviews of the festival's Saturday and Sunday - below:
