  1. 2017 New Music Thread

    I enjoyed the slightly awkward round of applause for M&S
  2. 2017 New Music Thread

    Loving the new Alvvays album. Was already familiar with most of the new songs from the gigs, but nice to have studio recordings. Relieved New Haircut made it to the album after all - one of my live favourites. Great gig in Manchester too the other night. Not sure I've been that close to a band before. Was almost being pushed on to Molly's pedal board at one point ha.
  3. Muse

    Aye. That was the moment I knew the best days were probably over. Watching Reading now on BBC4, and it's going down a lot better with the crowd than Glasto. The band seem like they are enjoying it more too.

    What a setlist, and the gig itself looked great on the livestream. Glorious alone makes me very jealous. Decided I needed an indefinite Muse break after Glasto, but regretting not trying for tickets for now. '10 years ago me' would be ashamed. This was the sort of gig I used to dream about seeing.
  5. Lana Del Rey - still a possibility?

    Ah yes, remember her claiming to be a Liverpool fan a few years ago. The Echo Arena date suggests she has stuck with them, despite the lack of silverware and Stevie G's unfortunate slip. Good on her. Anyway, managed to get 2 tickets this morning. Glad, as the new album is excellent. I don't think she'll ever release anything quite as good as Born to Die/Paradise again, but think this will settle in 2nd place. Get Free is an instant favourite, and her vocal on 13 Beaches is sublime.
  6. Arcade Fire

    Last night was outrageously good. Back to basics Arcade Fire doing wall to wall hits. No gimmicks - just pure energy and huge sing alongs. It was like the Karma Police moment from Tuesday extended to an entire gig! The band seemed genuinely moved too. Great weather, cool venue. Magic

    Glasto was my 10th time seeing them, and came away feeling pretty underwhelmed. It was such a predictable and by the numbers performance. Didn't help that it was essentially a stripped back version of their arena tour that year. However my mate (not particularly a fan) saw them for the first time and was very impressed. Also, 10 years since the first Wembley shows. Now THAT was a gig.

    Hope you're packing your sun cream, pal. Scorcher!
  9. Arcade Fire

    Oooh 2 hour set would be good. Wasn't planning getting there til 7 though.
  10. New security measures in place

    We were stood by the search desks, anxiously awaiting our repacking fate, before a member of security barked at us to keep moving, as if we were stupid to be expecting to be searched! Such a relief, mind. I've never been so jolly and chatty while talking to the wristband and ticket crew!
  11. Arcade Fire

    Aye, Haiti is always a live highlight for me. Powerellion too (though seem to remember seeing them do Month of Maybellion once which worked quite well too)
  12. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I really enjoyed it, but the bulk of the main set felt like a 'not quite as good' version of glasto. Very similar setlist, and atmosphere was polite, but a bit flat. I think the set being in daylight, and the amount of people queuing outside contributed to this. It got better and better as it went on though. The Bends - what a moment! And the crowd by then were pretty much begging them to come back out for a 3rd encore . I genuinely thought we might get How to Disappear Completely to close. Also had a bit of a moment during Karma Police - flashbacks of Glasto and all that. Felt like I was applauding and singing for both of the performances as they were walking off.
  13. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I know this won't go down well on here, but that's why Coldplay 2016 is possibly still my favourite Glasto set, despite how great Radiohead were. Utterly joyous, as you nicely put it.

  15. BBC Highlights Show

    Missed Lorde due to Radiohead, but saw Rews, Black Honey, Dua Lipa, First Aid Kit, Declan McKenna, The XX, Amber Arcades, Katy Perry, Warpaint, Sundowners & Haim. Always a great female presence at Glasto now - in fact, most of my favourite acts have women in these days. Love it!
