    Anyone else out there enjoy Glastonbury over the weekend? :smoke:

    Unfortunately I didn't go but the BBC2 and BBC3 coverage was great. I particularly enjoyed:

    Flaming Lips - they had some fun on stage didn't they?

    Polyphonic Spree - what a happy bunch!

    Radiohead - I was already a big fan


    I missed Primal Scream on Friday :( but I still have Sunday night to watch :D

    The Scream rocked the place by the looks of BBC3 on Friday night. Even Kevin Shields made an effort, which was nice :D

    Was any of Super Furries set on TV? Or was the whole world taken over by bloody Radiohead fever for one night? :suicide:

    Yeah the Super Furries were on but I didn't know much of their stuff and channel hopped.

    Mid-set they had this wierd bit where these two hairy yeti types (the actual Super Furries?) were banging on kettle drums until the band reappeared and took over. :laugh:

    For me the highlight of the weekend was Moloko. They played a fantastic set, loads of energy. Unlike me this morning :(

    Ah that's good to hear, at previous gigs I've been to they always bring out the animals (as copied by Flaming Lips at Glasto this year) and have a bit of a nonsensical techno-fest, then the boys come back for a finale. Go see them if you get the chance.

    And for more on the Monsters have a look at Pete Fowler's Monsterism website, it's great :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Watched it on TV:

    Radio Head: Wow, what a fantastic set. Supergrass looked cool, I saw a couple of Interpol tracks thrown in which was cool. Although i didnt go :( I really enjoyed watching it on TV. Have to be a quicker next year getting tickets.

    Was impressed by Flamming lips, David Holmes and Mobys version of Creep. Did anyone see the highlights of the Scratch Perverts? They played the record for smells like teen spirit from start to finish, all they did was MC "uhuh yea yea" a couple of times.

    He actually done it:eek:

    Edith Bowman was talking to him about radio head not playing it, and then asked moby "will you do It" to which he replied "OK" then laughed it off, I though they were joking:eek:

    For me the best set of the weekend looked (from my armchair festival via BBC3) like Primal Scream. They may be getting on a bit, but they defo show the new kids on the block how to rock'n'roll.

    Bobby G will live forever :clap: :clap:

    REM were suprisingly good, I'm not a fan but my girlfriend wanted to see them.

    Supergrass were awesome as usual.

    Radiohead started well and finished well but the crap in the middle was dull, self indulgent noise - dance music for the terminally ill.

    Surprise of the weekend for me were the waterboys, went to the acoustic tent to chill for a bit and they were on, excellent.

    And I still enjoyed the manics, god knows how Moby headlined above them.

    I agree with you about REM - i'm not a fan at all but really enjoyed their set. And I was surprised by how many REM songs I actually knew!

    I left halfway thro the Radiohead set - it got a bit tedious and i'm seeing them in November anyway so wasn't too fussed.
