  1. 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.
  2. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Oh absolutely, thought the performance was better if anything. Thom was on fantastic form.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. The National

    Yep just secured mine for Manchester on Sat. Can't wait! Then Nick Cave two days later!
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Gorillaz

    I actually quite liked this on first listen yesterday. Ascension is massive, and I think We Got the Power is great. Jenny Beth's contribution in inspired imo. Obviously it's no Demon Days, but there are plenty of good tunes on there. Love the Grace Jones one too, and Saturn Barz or whatever it's called has grown on me.
  13. Best opening 3 tracks of an album

    Caribou - Swim (Odessa - Sun - Kaili) John Grant - Queen of Denmark (TC & Honeybear - Marz - Where Dreams Go to Die) Wild Beasts - Two Dancers (Fun Powder Plot - Hooting & Howling - All the King's Men)
  14. Your most unexpectedly poignant music moment.

    A couple other people have said (Patti Smith, LCD), but also randomly stumbling upon Lekiddo in the Rabbit Hole playing To the Beach with everyone singing along and doing the actions (2015 I think). One of the most brilliantly bizarre things I've seen. And then last year Kamasi Washington ending on The Rhythm Changes. I'd just gone to see him out of curiosity, and was impressed, but that song hit me especially hard.
  15. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Wow, aside from the Pablo Honey/TKOL thing I actually pretty much agree with that. Quite often disagree with Fantano too
