  1. THE RHYTHM METHOD!! Archetypal band to stumble across at 2pm or 2am in a stage you didn't even know existed.
  2. It was actually this tweet that made me think of them when I saw this thread.

    Give them their own little part of a field to play for hours on end in, like 1992
  4. The Lovely Eggs need to play at Glastonbury. Williams Green would be perfect.
  5. He suffered a life-threatening illness aged 20, which he has not disclosed the details of for fear of being seen as a sympathy case. I imagine the cancellations are related to it. https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/sam-fender-interview-hypersonic-missiles-new-album-a9097611.html

    Self Confirmed 2020

    Yaaaaay Bombay Bicycle Club! Came here because of what was said on Radio 1 but see they already had something to say. Just said "We're working on it.", which is a decent get-out that doesn't make it obvious you're playing... It's very special to see your favourite songs played at Glastonbury, and both their sets in 2014 were part of that magical one-time-only first Glaston for me. Their songs have a woozy, dreamlike quality which also goes well with the festival. One of the big two stages in the sunshine would be gorgeous, but I have visions of the Park on Sunday night, the early finish night, sunset behind them, the inevitable tears.

    Arcadia: notoriously low on creativity

    Ever since they welcomed suggestions about how to develop Pangea, I've been wondering what could work well... Mirrors. Line the crane with them, make the radome ball into a giant disco ball, bounce all kinds of lights off of them from the outer circle, let the people up close to the centre see the reflection of the masses behind them.

    That's my favourite of theirs too. I'd say from what I heard on Sunday EEHGW is most like that than any of the others.

    Sunday was such a good day, drinking and fun and games round Leeds with good friends, evoked the kind of nostalgia that this song goes for. I'm a sucker for good transitions between songs, and the way they spun the outro of a new one, "Good Day" into "How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep?" was superb! Watch out for that if you're seeing them. Hope they don't clash with headliners at Glaston (if they play), although I'd probably see them above everyone except Macca if they did. I think I'll be spending most of this year's fest with my good friend Beth and we both adore them. Preference: Park headline (never seen a Park headliner) > Pyramid early afternoon > Other Stage late afternoon > John Peel headline. Also they did that BBC Introducing stage slot last time as well (watch here), I'd love a bit of that again.

    It was 7 new ones, 5 old ones. It's such a treat to see them up close, I was grinning like a loon. I'm so looking forward to hearing what their full set sounds like when they tour with The Big Moon, those are gonna be some damn good shows.

    Saw Bombay Bicycle Club preview Friday's new album release yesterday at the Brudenell in Leeds. The songs are sounding really good, it feels like Everything Else Has Gone Wrong will sit well alongside their pre-break albums! Is It Real was a standout of the unreleased ones, it's a bombastic one so it shined through the never-heard-it-before fog!
  14. Even found the interview with Josh talking about playing a more esoteric set (need to click 'Click here to Run Flash Player) http://www.bbc.co.uk/readingandleeds/2008/radio1/video/video7.shtml
  15. They purposefully did an understated set that year, as they knew everyone would be buzzing for Rage, and didn't want to steal their thunder. Still love the special version of Go With The Flow they did though.
