The Future Islands singer is verging on becoming a parody of himself. They're ok though.

I know what you mean but it works. A bit like Ian Curtis or Iggy Pop or Mick Jagger who danced/performed in a very iconic and specific manner. Adds to the appeal, the dad dancing by someone who does look like a dad who's let himself go but don't give a fook. Musics not bad too.

Could Blondie be a possible for opening Other on Friday?

Already played early on the Other in 2014 (and were apparently dreadful) so probably not.

Nice to see the old girl.. Sounds good even after all these years.. Fair play Blondie. Future islands.. Lol is he trying to be jack black lol... Mad if you like me hadn't seen the geezer you wouldn't think that was how he would look.. Enjoyed that.. 

London grammar.. Ferr fer ( means beautiful ) nice voice think they'll be great at glasto in the sun.. There a song on there album which I think could be contender for the tune of Glastonbury this year I'll find it later.. 

OB.. I like old grandad sat down playing the bass..... Bongos.. Can't stand em even when played properly... Not for me 

Maybe... Is that lyrics she's got on her hand lol..nope 

B and M..... Talented but not my cuppa tea. The black Chad Smith 

Cool show.. Until he started yakking 

Blondie..... And her old rockers.. It's nice to hear older artist adapt older songs to fit there voices instead of trying to make the song sound as it use to and ruin it.. Go girl..... Isn't one of the band her husband.....??. 

Might watch Fridays show..

Blondie were superb on the other, loved them. So many hits. 

Yes they were great in the moment, but watching it back later didn't seem quite as good. But they were first on after the secret openers, so I'd be surprised (and pleased tbh) if they were the secret Other Openers this year

I was in the pub and it was on, but no sound. Stupid local weatherspoons! Who were the baobab band? Saw the name and thought they looked ace. But obviously didn't hear them.

Debbie Harry looked like she was having fun, how did they sound?

In the past couple of weeks, Future islands have elevated themselves a few levels in my book from the "slightly intrigued" to the "I sure hope they don't clash with anyone". Their performance on Jools has kept up this momentum; cracking.

I watched it back and it didn't do the live performance justice! Was so so good

I think you might be thinking of Strong, its a really stunning song. I think that will be this years BBC Glasto song, I think they will be the band of the summer. Beautiful vocals

Had an early night last night, so will be watching Friday's later tonight. 

More excitingly just found out the guests for the recording I have tickets to on the 16th, Paul Weller, Alt-J, Little Dragon, Dave, Maggie Rogers and Naturally 7.

BEYOND HAPPY!

So I just thought I'd look how you get tickets and found out it's in Maidstone!! (Like 10 mins from me). How did I not know this. 

Anyway.... ticket applications have closed dammit

I live really close too and didn't realise until a few years ago it was filmed there! Worth going if you can apply for next season

Thought it was pretty poor last night. Future Islands or ok but really he's just a pub singer with odd dance moves. Think I'd be bored after 3 or 4 songs.
