  1. Glastonbury evolves

    And even then....
  2. Glastonbury evolves

    Protip: don't Google "Cock and Ball Torture" without appending the words Metal Band to the search.
  3. Glastonbury evolves

    Disappointed to hear my Kirk Hammett costume getting dissed tbh.
  4. Glastonbury evolves

    Keep the metal fans occupied after hours by erecting a marquee with a sign outside promising Cock and Ball Torture and the rest writes itself and whatnot.
  5. Glastonbury evolves

    Cock and Ball and the lads to play The Park.
  6. Glastonbury evolves

    I doubt bookings down that side of the festival have got much to do with Eavis any more. But I agree it's time for more heavy acts: specifically Def Leppard.
  7. Glastonbury evolves

    Are Cock And Ball Torture a real band?
  8. 2018 - What it might have looked like

    Distraught that this year we won't see The Hunna ascend to their rightful position as Other Stage headliners.
  9. Glastonbury evolves

    I'd be pretty surprised if the Earache Stage isn't back, maybe in bigger form. Seems to have been a roaring success.
  10. Glastonbury evolves

    They should go the whole hog and turn it into a folk session / open mic.
  11. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    I think there"s a bit of footage of that on YouTube. From memory it involved a lot of fairly stoned jamming and an extended percussion interlude from yer man during My Morning Song that went down like a tonne of bricks with the crowd.
  12. Glastonbury evolves

    There probably is too much emphasis on drum and bass after hours.....but then I got dragged to Arcadia to see Roni Size last year and really enjoyed it, so........
  13. Glastonbury evolves

    Ideally we could start phasing out the non-metal elements of the festival and give the whole site over to:
  14. Glastonbury evolves

    They had one last year https://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2017/may/03/glastonbury-metal-stage-napalm-death-earache
  15. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    Skunk and the lads were basically the last gasp of the 80s/90s style of headline booking policy when acts like The Black Crowes and Lenny Kravitz wound up at the top of the tree.
  16. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    Though I think few would have predicted the extent to which The Arcade Fires have pissed on their own chips in the last year.
  17. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    They were big enough at the time, but posterity is already making Mumford & Sons look like a bit of an odd call.
  18. 2018 New Music

    More fake news in the MSN
  19. Glastonbury evolves

    That would just give way less variety without much in the way of an upside.
  20. Glastonbury evolves

    Haven't thought through the practicalities of it at all, but I saw at the weekend that Sundance Festival have strengthened their policies against sexual assualt and harassment by issuing a code of conduct and creating a dedicated 24 hour hotline. Basically, doing more to make it safer for women / folk who identify as women.
  21. 2018 New Music

    Would love to be in the room with David Gedge when someone informs him that this lot are the next big thing.
  22. Who should reform?

    At this point the Symphonic Smiths still looks like a better bet than Morrissey.
  23. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Any Edinburgh catboys going to Jorja Smith - and if so are there ticket restrictions like having to show purchaser ID?
  24. 2018 New Music

    Too early to give much of an opinion on the new First Aid Kit joint, but Fireworks is every bit the jam that Emmylou is.
