Charli XCX - one of us

Recommended Posts

Anybody read her bit in the Sunday edition of Glastonbury Free Press? Fuck all those other dickhead celebrities who apparently "get it" because they spend the weekend in expensive campervans in VIP and sit looking photogenic up the Stone Circle for a bit; Charli XCX properly gets it. And her set was amazing this year, and her new album is fucking brilliant, and she's got more fucking bangers in her back catalogue at the age of 24 than anybody else in recorded history. Best person ever.

I got dragged to her set (playing the long game to avoid Ed on the Sunday).

She had a lot of energy, I'll give her that. Couldn't stand a fucking song though, sorry.

Really enjoyed her set, even if it did mean sacking off Canalon.  Girl gave it some welly.

She's been routinely putting in incendiary Glastonbury sets for years now, it's what she does. Completely changes every time as well. She had a guitar band backing her last time and was doing her pop-punk thing, also amazing. 

I liked that she marked her territory by spunking pink all over the stage, I was hoping it was stay there all weekend, maybe even forever and they'd have to rename it the Charli XCX Stage.

I seen her a few years ago before she had any hits... And she smashed it then, watched her at the weekend and she was even better! Very well done to her!

We went to get something to eat by the Other Stage as she was on and personally I thought she was absolutely horrendous and the worst thing I heard all weekend. I'm clearly not down with the kids and it's very much an each to their own thing

She's from my hometown. When she was 13 or 14 she pranced around the stage of the town fete in fluorescent pink singing about Dinosaurs.

 

Good to see she's done well out of it.

Also one of my all-time favourite Nardwuar interviews, and I'm something of a connoisseur of Nardwuar.

Is there any recording of this? Maybe just a few songs from a roundup broadcast at all? Or even from the Annie Mac thing on Thursday on BBC Intro?

Loved it.

Saw her in the Sonic Tent in 2014 and it really wasn't very good at all.  New stage set up and the excellent new songs really suit her.  Could have done without I Love It/Fancy/Boom Clap in the set but, of course, I fully understand why they had to be there.

The wind blowing all of the confetti etc back onto the stage was hilarious and I was sad to see them clear it off so quickly!

Apparently they're all famous. I only recognised Stormzy, Tom Daley, William, and Frank Carter.

Big man Kaytranada is in there as well.

Clicked on 'Boys' to look at all the famous people (Mac Demarco is fit) and now the song's been going round in my head all day. Fuck's sake.

Nah didn't clock him, but in my defence he does look quite a bit different now from A Fever You Can't Sweat Out era
