  1. I like Courteeners as well, but I was appalled at Heaton park when a sizeable chunk started a Stephen Yaxley-Lennon chant. Cretins go to gigs is not a new phenomenon though.
  2. This was the set that made me want to go to Glastonbury in the first place. I'm so envious of all you lucky people who were there. Seeing them in Hyde Park was special, and great again in 2015, but this set was amazing to watch even on TV.

    Anyone at Coldplay 2011 vs 2016 have a preference? I was at the 2011 set and thoroughly enjoyed it, however the 2011 setlist included a lot more of the early stuff than 2016 which made it for me. I do love the visuals from the 2016 set though. I was at LCD Soundsystem in 2016 so have zero regrets.
  4. Exactly this. I think we really need Keir to start expressing policy, not just a case of being better than the other guy.
  5. Any reason why Taylor wouldn't play? Did I miss the speculation.
  6. I love the AM, and have seen them deliver some absolutely quality sets to their own crowds. Earls Court and The O2 have both been fantastic and memorable gigs. Glastonbury 2013 however died on it's arse and I was in the pit area. It really was a fine example of a set that looked better on TV than in person.

    That does sound fantastic, sadly 2011 was my first year. 2009 continually gets discussed as the pinnacle of the festival. For me I think the toss up is between 2013 and 2017 for the best festival year.

    The XX 2017 set is really a thing of beauty, I would love them to get the headline gig one of these days. The triple header of Royal Blood, The XX followed by Radiohead is probably still the best night I've ever had at the festival.

    Just watched REM on the iPlayer, I was far too young to be there so that was a treat and footage I've never seen before. I'd love to see them, but there doesn't seem to be the appetite for a reunion yet.
  10. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000kcw6 BBC have just posted the full audio of the set from 2016. Hopefully the video to follow!

    Thing I loved about that video is that I've been having an amazing time doing stuff that doesn't make it's way to the BBC highlights reel. I just had a really intense flashback to being in the middle of the Chems crowd from last year.
  12. Rankings of useless ministers (top or bottom five) Patel Sharma Jenrick (deserving of a mention for sure) Shapps Raab
  13. Without trying to sound too much like hyperbole, I think the next Radiohead album could be THE stone cold classic. It will be the longest they have ever gone without writing significant new material since they formed. The context and era amongst a pandemic and the political turmoil of Brexit. How can it not be a masterpiece without even hearing a note?!

    That Elbow set should be emotional. Was my first Glastonbury that year, the sunset during Elbow was the moment I fell in love with the place.
  15. I think the only thing the Tories are trying to avoid is pictures of patients on hospital floors as that is a political weapon that can be used against them. If the NHS has capacity then they will fill it back up solely to restart the economy.
