  1. The National

    Yep. Defo enjoyed Nick Cave more. Staggering gig. Seems like a bit of a lottery with these National setlists. Was pretty happy with the one we got, but would have been miffed at that one with no Alligator.

    wow really sad about that. They've never put a foot wrong to my ears
  3. The National

    Thought they were great last night, though I think I'd have preferred Friday's set (Conversation 16 is one of my favourites and I've never seen them play it). Guilty Party would have been the highlight but the girl next to me decided to give her friend an in depth lyrical analysis of the song during it, which ruined it a bit. Got hit by one of Matt's drinks too!
  4. The National

    Same. Took me months to get into TWFM, though I love it now. Wasn't taken with the new one on my first couple of listens, but there's only a couple not doing it for me now. I'm fairly sure I'll end up liking it as much as the others (Boxer aside, which is on another level for me).
  5. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Yeah I think one of the reasons I didn't enjoy last night as much as I sometimes do was the lack of the 4 year build up of anticipation I've always had in the past. As someone who generally only sees bands once per tour, it felt weird seeing them again so soon.
  6. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Oh absolutely, thought the performance was better if anything. Thom was on fantastic form.
  7. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Enjoyed that but it was a fair way off Glasto I reckon, though I was miles back which didn't help. They seemed to be having a great time though, and The Bends was superb.
  8. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Looks like they botched The Gloaming tonight. Hopefully that mean it won't turn up on Tuesday. I'd still be happy with that set mind. Would love to hear Climbing up the Walls.

    From memory there is food but it's overpriced and shit
  10. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I'm a bit gutted my memory of Fake Plastic Trees onwards is as hazy as it is. I remember fucking loving it though. 2+2=5 going off was probably my highlight.
  11. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Thought it was incredible, without a doubt one of the best performances I've seen. I was pretty close to the front, so the screens weren't an issue, and the crowd around me were all well into it. We had moshpits for 2+2=5 and Paranoid Android, and some attempted pogoing to EIIRP! The last hour or so was just unreal. I was fairly plastered by the end, but I can't believe they played all those incredible songs one after another. Can't wait to watch it again on iPlayer. I mentioned this in the top 5 acts thread, but surely this is about as divisive as Pyramid headliners get. I can't think of any while I've been going (since 2013) who so many people have simultaneously found transcendent and shit. I guess maybe Kanye, although I was under the impression that the weight of opinion erred on the side of shit for him.
  12. Top 5 Acts

    1. Radiohead - everything I could have hoped for. Unreal. Although surely the most divisive Pyramid headline set in recent history. My mates were split 50/50 on amazing/shit. 2. Chic - great fun. So many hits 3. Everything Everything - incredible atmosphere in that tent 4. Jon Hopkins - awesome set. I've never been so close to the spider. Also experienced my first metamorphosis show after. Insane stuff. 5. Justice - didn't really know much of the stuff, but it sounded fantastic. Great end to the festival. Pretty much everything I saw was great though. The xx, Run the Jewels, Sampha and British Sea Power could all easily have been in there.
  13. The National

    Yep just secured mine for Manchester on Sat. Can't wait! Then Nick Cave two days later!
  14. The National

    Dunno if anyone's mentioned it but there's an O2 presale for all UK dates on Wednesday. Missed out on Manc this morning
  15. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Wow. I don't think there'll be a full album play through, but Airbag into Paranoid Android opening is definitely on. Or maybe opening with Lucky like in 97
