but I had to give up.
Also, you spelt Prestwich wrong.
Your ears are broken.
Some of the other songs are very pleasant, often even mildly diverting, but Jiggery Pokery is the absolute stand out, words cannot do it justice. It's already in my top ten songs of the year. In fact I only started compiling a top ten songs of the year just so I could put Jiggery Pokery in it.
If you're not a fan of The MAnager, or whatever he calls himself, it was fun for 45 minutes and then 2 hours of purest hell, wishing above all things that you'd gone to see Jarvis Cocker and wondering what he'd have to say about MJ.
Springsteen was INTERMINABLE.
that Travis in 2000 were fucking brilliant.
Also, i have a theory that Glastonbury is brilliant every other festival. I started going in 2000, so...
2000 - Pet Shop Boys, Travis, David Bowie - Brilliant
2002 - Stereophonics, Rod Stewart - SHIT
2003 - REM, Radiohead, Flaming Lips - Brilliant
2004 - Oasis, Muse, rain - SHIT
2005 - Coldplay, Brian Wilson, fucking MONSOON but loads of sun after - Brilliant
2007 - Rain rain rain and no good bands (my highlight was Billy fucking Bragg) - SHIT
2008 - Jay-Z, Jay-Z, Jay-Z - Brilliant
Which means that this year is going to be shit. I hope it isn't though.
Weakest track on the album along with Turn to Stone, although I do like the end bit where Cheryl goes "Love is pain, oh oh oh, feel I could wipe you." I always skip it to get to Miss You Bow Wow quicker, anyway...
The Loving Kind, on the other hand, is one of the pinnacles of all human achievement ever.
The Week That Was were just incredible though, absolutely spot on. The Field Music track was amazing, better than I've ever heard them play it before.
Also, Peter Brewis looks a bit like Ricky Hatton, don't you think?
was the absolute highlight of Glastonbury this year.
The rest of his set was pretty flipping amazing too.
You'd have to have been really trying hard not to have pissed your pants at how ace it was.
Does anyone really give a toss about festival awards? Which "festival attendees" voted? V festival attendees?
Wasn't all that.
Best ones for me:
Glastonbury 2000 and 2005.
This year's Latitude.
