This would be a good way to kick-start a tour... Just sayin'...
probably only want to play to 'proper fans' and play what they want. means people cant complain if they just play KOL in full or Jazz covers becuase they're probably doing this for free/very cheap and its not been advertised
could be interesting... field is surely gonna be packed out! KOL in its entirety with a few hits i reckons
it's taking the piss a bit doing this as it is, but I guess they could be let off if they play a painfully obtuse set. I suppose it may potentially be a bit shambolic for wont of rehearsals, though that would seem a bit unlikely.
When I went, the special guests were Klaxons, The Dead Weather and some Supergrass spin off group - gash!
Would have loved to have seen Radiohead at The Park.
and announce a tour please.......
Don't bank on a tour
they toured HTTT in, admittedly shit, arena's
they did the tent tour and south park and small venues and other smallish venues (is hammersmith small? for them i guess) and then another outdoor tour
hopefully isn't completely out of the question
i've managed to see at least Thom live each of the last 3 years, i'm beggining to get used to it!
That's insane. That field holds about 4 or 5 thousand at best. Now this news is out, I expect deaths.
Note: Top secret bookings on stages are only top secret when you do it the first time unexpectedly. If you then do it every year subsequently for the next 4 years, yeah... the surprise has kinda gone.
I dunno, seemed to recall thinking this was nailed on?
Worst kept secret ever
Fearne Cotton, Reggie Yates & the Wombats. Argh.
I thought all that shit died out in 2006.
I know! Let's have our flappy-gobbed, Hollyoaks-dressed media studies-graduate presenters go round all weekend patronising everything that doesn't involve a mainstream band!
it actually fuckin hurts.
Flee the BBC 3 fools. Painful stuff on there.
(Oh and Little Dragon on the red button)
They'll have to send more reporters and fucking plebs like Ferne next year
Shame, its where most of the best stuff at the festival is?
when did they start putting cameras on the other stages? can only have been a few years ago. i think until the 00s it was only the pyramid and the Other Stage that was filmed.
as far as I can tell. It's always been the stage formerly known as Jazz/World as the third highlights stage. (Which is nice, as it means Big Boi and Janelle Monae tomorrow)
that Radio 1 aren't covering Glastonbury this weekend as the station has decided it's too old for their target audience. Is that right?
They haven't shut up about it.
Glastonbury always was a bit of an old fart's fest, even back in the day. first year i went the headliners were Steve Winwood and Peter Gabriel and that was the mid 90s. it brielfy had a moment of being vaguely teen/20s friendly but that was a blip. there's always been way fewer teens there compared to say Leeds-fest, V or Creamfields but the reasons why are obvious i guess.
Press the red button to watch strange and brilliant noises/grooves from Heliocentrics. I am liking this! Or watch Mumford and Sons...
is pretty small...i wonder what else is on that could have dragged attention away from the main stage so drastically.
that Morrissey is on.
BBCGlasto: Radiohead have told us that they wanted their set to be a special live moment for fans. They didn't want it to be filmed. Apols.
As if they're saying that you can only be a real fan of the band if you buy a ticket for a festival they're not even on the bill of, then turn up at a given time in the expectance they'll play a secret show. And that it'll be good.
may or may not be a word. Morrissey's set is so phoned in i changed channel, then realised that Mumford was on BBC3 and turned back over.
was pretty great though.
for the sole reason that i'd find it near impossible not to enjoy that song. It just seems so half-arsed. Him, the crowd, the band,everything.

I guess Radiohead should have just stayed at home then and not bothered. Playing mostly songs from their recently released album, who'd have thought eh??? Jeees, bands today....
''Radiohead haven't got the capacity to move away from the "hits" and still own the crowd'' Yeah, what chance have they got of ever producing a classic Glastonbury set, eh?
Don't take stuff out of context;
Not because the album isn't good, or because Radiohead haven't got the capacity to move away from the "hits" and still own the crowd. But because it was pissing down, and for all its admirably unique qualities, Glastonbury fundamentally attracts a lot of people who have paid a lot of money to be entertained in the freezing mud by bands they probably wont get to see again
of Satellite of Love sounds like a bad pub singer that everyone tries to ignore. Although he just caled David Cameron a silly twit. Revolutionary that he is.
criminally underrated song from an even more criminally underrated album.
and enjoyed the new one too, Action is my middle name.
Walking onstage THOM YORKE even bashfully said "Hello, we're called Radiohead" even though the audience, packed into the Park Stage, all knew who they were.
and all things considered he had a decent turnout. great performance of 'you have killed me' in particular. no appearance of 'speedway' this show though.
