    Have the church changed there set much ?

    Hey up buddy!

    Yeah, they were a girl down (the lovely Sister Mary Joy was absent), not sure why, nothing was said? I think there was only one song without the Reverend (Bang Bang), can't remember much else but it was still crazily uplifting and joyful but definitely a different set to the last time I (we?) saw them. Half of our group had never heard of them before but definitely came away thoroughly cleansed.

    Emily's post would suggest they're putting everything into Worthy Pastures. I'm sure their reasons for not going ahead with Equinox might be the same for Pilton Party 

    I don't know, Pilton Party's routine.

    Don't want to spam the thread, but I don't suppose anyone knows whether Bath Racecourse or Avonmouth vaccination centre are offering Pfizer walk-ins for over 40s at the moment? The information online is entirely contradictory. One part of the NHS website says both are offering walk-ins to anyone over 18 for first or second jab, another part of the site says only people with booked appointments should turn up.  

    I'm already booked in for the mass vaccination site in Bristol next Tuesday – nine weeks after my first, but we're going on holiday the following morning and would prefer to avoid running the risk of having flu symptoms for the holiday, if it's fine for me to go to a walk-in centre. At the same time, don't want to do an hour's round trip and add to their workload unnecessarily if I shouldn't be going there.




    Taunton Racecourse and B & W might be:



  4. Arcade Fire 2007 - Having blagged my mates that it would be the set of the weekend, I begrudgingly followed them when they left half way through to go see Kasabian (I think) as it was boring.

    Oasis  2004 - Not bad as such, musically it was there but the attitude wasn't, a workman like performance that should have been awesome.

    The Killers 2007 - Not the band's fault, we just couldn't hear 'em.

    Arctic Monkeys 2007 - They were not a headline band at this time, I'm sure I remember Alex asking "Glastonbury, are you still with us?" or something like it, really underwhelming... don't believe the hype! 

    Watching from home, Kanye's set seemed beyond rubbish, especially when he appeared to be hanging on for dear life in the cherry picker, started off pretty good though.


  5. Re. Noise limit, the council were concerned about the cumulative volume (festival +PP) and GFEL argued that as this event would only happen when the others didn't then they would be down on their 'allowance' if they pushed for lower volume for the Equinox do (I think).

    Please enlighten me - I’ve tried to find the reasoning why, with finite resources, using more of the health service capacity with more patients via more infections would free up capacity for non Covid patients. I do understand that some non Covid patients are reluctant to seek treatment when infections are high for fear of catching Covid in a hospital environment but wouldn’t they be even less willing in a non lockdown situation as infections would be higher? 

    I think some people may fear being an unnecessary burden when the NHS is under pressure. 

  7. I was there, having gone under a fence that afternoon, I was a mess it was awesome.

    Memories are vague because I was a Glasto virgin and the whole thing was way beyond my expectations. My mate got sketchy in the dance tent earlier so we found ourselves at the main stage by accident (no programme, map or owt) then I got my own sketch on because there was a fight just in front of us (not sure if before or during) and in my addled state I became convinced it was because somebody was there without a ticket. 

    I loved the set; I only knew Common People from the radio but it lead to a long time love of Pulp as a band.

    About all I've got to say really, apart from one more thing... the singalong for Common People gave me a buzz that I've been trying to repeat ever since leading to loads of gigs and festys, my first proper (non-pub) gig was Pink Floyd the year before which was amazing but a world away from that show so in that respect it is not unreasonable to say that Pulp at Glasto in 95 literally changed my life!

  8. While it's not inconceivable that, with some restrictions, Glastonbury could go ahead, I think, well hope really, that moves to open up are tentative with time taken to observe possible affects. This strikes me as the logical way forward and the reason that I don't think the festival (as we know it) will take place.

    Caveat: The government are shocking so logic may not apply.

    yup , got tickets for that bad boy ( for next year now ) also i manage to get tix for the Pilton Party . i absolutely love the PP , its like a mini glasto ( they even open up some long drops for that authentic experience . lol ) 

    The Pilton Party is always awesome, only done one Extravaganza (Madness + Steve Harley) and that was awesome as well, apart from the queue for the bogs.
