  1. Aye it was shitty one that. My missus said, "christ, it's only thursday and you've already nearly died on pills?". Not the sympathetic type, my missus.
  2. I remember camping next to a group of kids from Welwyn Garden City - not a funny story at all by the way - and overheard a conversation early Thursday morning about how they'd heard somebody died wednesday evening, didn't know who it was, and couldn't find their mate. Then it turned out that their mate was carted off by a steward in the early hours after he overdosed on pills because whilst onsite, on the wednesday, his dog had died and he couldn't cope. Hope he was alright.
  3. Your girlfriend's got a bucket! - Yeah well so's your mum after I fucked her in the Gully last night.
  4. "Fuck off West Holts. Go there, you'll get gangbanged by 4 black guys wearing sequins!"
  5. Was Dolly Parton any good? - Yeah if you like country music and massive granny tits.
  6. "What kind of a fucking farm is this if I can't get fucking fresh eggs for breakfast!?"
  7. I was in the toilets in Lower Mead and overheard a conversation Monday between two girls. You alright Amy? - Yeah. Do you need a hand? - No. Have you got hand sanitiser? - Yeah. Are you being sick? - Ummmm... no I'm ok. Are you having a wee? - Yeah. Do you have any toilet roll? - Yeah. Do you need a poo? - Ummmm... no I'm ok. Ok, well I'll wait outside. - Ok. Do you need any compost? - Ummm... no, I'm ok. Ok I'm just waiting outside. - Ok. Are you alright Amy? - Yeah. Are you having a poo yet? - Yeah. Ok let me know if you need compost. - Ok.
  8. Saturday in William's Green as well. The Wytches The Bevis Frond Temples Some good bands in there that day, actually though I'm not too keen on The Rails. Toy has been spoken about earlier, Fujiya & Miyagi have some motorik going on if Krautrock floats your boat, and The Moles are worth checking out as well. Richard Davies from The Moles is a massive influence on The Flaming Lips and Wayne Coyne in particular.
  9. Gong aren't playing but Steve Hillage is fusing Gong with System 7 on the Glade Stage on Friday, unless I'm grossly misinformed and it's just Steve Hillage banging a gong along to System 7.
  10. Really liking Melt Yourself Down at the minute. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozFVcoLvqgQ
  11. The temptation is to say Julian Cope and listening to him speak but Brian Jonestown Massacre or MGMT could pull a 20-minute drone out of the bag easily enough and nobody would think any different. I found last year the best place to hear a good drone (and I mean a seriously hard drone) was away from all the music in the healing fields. I took part in some Yogic meditation and there was some good throat singing going down; couple of shruti boxes going off somewhere. Nice. To be fair with this thread, it's discussing Psychedelic Music of Glastonbury as opposed to Psych Rock. 'Psych Rock' itself could be found easily enough in Brian Jonestown Massacre but if you're looking for sound that's quite 'mind expanding', I think that list should suffice. Some bands make careers out of being Retro 60's - get the vintage instruments, make the tie-dyes etc - like The Black Angels or Wooden Shijps (neither on the line-up, unfortunetly) but I don't think that sound should define what 'Psychedelic' is. Some could be controversial looking at bands like Haim or somebody like Four Tet but it's all about the vibe for some bands; Haim, along with Warpaint, play some really pretty and colourful music; like a sort of Southern California Beach Pop - to me they have a 'Psychedelic Sound'; just a brighter one to, say, The Horrors, who are darker, more Suicide-influenced. The Bevis Frond, I didn't mention directly but they are in William's Green on Saturday; the entire day inside that tent has an amazing line-up and I'm tempted to just hang about there all day. I won't though. Radiphonic Workshop will not be missed.
  12. Got bored. By the way, this list is not representative of what one subjectively calls 'Psychedelic Music' – this is just a list of bands and random other assortments that I, as a fan of Psychedelic Music, would listen to or gravitate to, to feed my head. Man. Some will definitely not offer you 20-minute drones; others might. Most will almost definitely clash; some will make you think I'm taking the piss. (Using the Glastonbury 'line-up' page) Pyramid The War on Drugs – Friday Jack White – Saturday The Black Keys – Sunday The Other Stage Haim - Friday Warpaint – Saturday Pixies - Saturday The Horrors – Sunday Massive Attack – Sunday West Holts The London Sinfonietta with Jonny Greenwood – Friday Sun Ra Arkestra – Friday Vintage Trouble – Friday John Wizards – Saturday Melt Yourself Down – Sunday The Park Stage Four Tet – Friday (also in The Beat Hotel on Friday) Mogwai – Saturday Anna Calvi – Saturday Jagwar Ma – Saturday (Also in William's Green on Sunday) Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band – Sunday John Peel Stage Polica – Friday (Also in William's Green on Friday) Temples – Friday (Also in William's Green on Saturday) Drenge – Friday MGMT – Saturday Fat White Family – Saturday (Also in William's Green on Friday) Reignwolf – Saturday The Black Tambourines – Saturday The Brian Jonestown Massacre – Sunday William's Green Connan Mockasin – Friday All of Saturday is Psychedelic Music, if not mainly consisting of Psych Rock – can see myself being in there all day Avalon Stage Emiliana Torrini – Saturday Glade Steve Hillage fuses Gong & System 7 - Friday Mad Professor ft. General Levy & Joe Ariwa – Friday Alabama 3 – Friday Radiophonic Workshop – Saturday Wow! Stage East India Youth – Thursday (Also in William's Green on Friday) The Crow's Nest Julian Cope – Friday Speaker's Forum Legalisation of Cannabis (Green Party Drugs Group) - Thursday Rupert Sheldrake (Morphic Resonance) - Sunday Mandala Stage Interplanetary Liberation Front – Wednesday, Friday & Sunday Pyramids of Snafu – Thursday, Friday & Sunday Pilton Palais Take some mushrooms, watch Gravity 3D on Thursday and The Lego Movie in 3D on Friday In terms of DJ sets, you've got a litany of people – 808 State in Bez's Acid House on Saturday, Primal Scream doing a DJ set in the Acid Lounge on Saturday, DJ AFX which is rumoured to be Aphex Twin on Friday in The Temple, A Guy Called Gerald on the Hell Stage on Saturday... the list for that is seemingly endless so I won't go on about them. Just have a look and see what floats your boat if Acid House is your thing. Same thing can be said for the vast amount of Reggae going on as well – saw Prince Fatty on the Hell Stage on Saturday.
  13. I think I'm going to have to spend the next few days going through the list and listen to some of these bands to do a comprehensive list of psychedelic bands for people to check out. Positive for me to see this thread still around and re-assuring to know there's other fans of the genre out there.
