  1. I'm certain twitter indicated we would get an announcement in Jan sometime.
  2. We did. Read her book a couple of years ago. It's Ok. She was my dream woman in around 1996.
  3. It was either The Wailers or Lady Smith Balck Mambazo (spelling?) on the Pyramid in 2000, I'd need to check.
  4. I know I am alone in thinking AG was awful. We left. (We didn't talk over him though!)
  5. I can't think of any other band who could better than run of albums all the way from Murmur to Automatic. All 4**** albums or above, easily. Their latter career stuff still has it's great moments. After the not-so-great Around the Sun tour they also went back to being a great, stomping live band. Check out '39 Songs' for a great mix of old and new rocked out.
  6. R.E.M would stil be big enough to headline. Easy. Never ever gonna happen though.
  7. Will check out some of those listed above. PJ Harvey, Whitney (recommended here), Bon Iver, Local Native, Michele Stodart, Conor Oberst, Michael Kiwanuka, Carseat Headrest.... those are the ones I think I've listened to most off the top of my head.
  8. They were great in both 2010 & 2013 - but as commented before - way to short a slot in 2013, they were only on for about an hour I'm sure! 2010 in the sun. What a bloody lovely afternoon that was.
  9. That would be fantastic.
  10. It was a strange year for me. Definitely much nearer the bottom of my best Glastonburys than near the top. I can only think 2007 & 2002 being less enjoyable. (Of course, a bad G is still 1000 times better than 'real life'.) The music wasn't that great overall, IMHO. The weather was bad. Brexit made me quite angry over the weekend, and there weren't tooo many good old rants by bands, which surprised me. The highight was spending time with our usual group, having missed a couple of years. But that was off set by some newcomers who weren't quite on the same wave length as those who we've been going with for years. So all in all, an odd one. Not solely down to the weather.
  11. Oh FFS. Not going this year. :-( Gutted! Oh well.
  12. The National are bloody brilliant.
  13. I read it whilst I'm waiting for a hair cut - other than that not bought it in 10 years. Between around 1994-2001 I reckon I bought it almost every month.
  14. yes! They wre great - had never heared of them either at the time and we laughed all the way through their set. (The joke wore thin a couple of years later, whenyou realised they weren't even joking!). "Give me a D, (D!), give me an Arkness.."
  15. I'd agree. Preferred the days when you'd go and watched something different or new 1st thing Friday (yes, I know you still have that option, but there is a case of missing out syndrome sometimes)., rather than what is billed as a big deal with being a big band, but in my experience disappoints.
