Yeah, but he's moved it from second after the intro to much further on in the set 🤣

My other half knows him so I can't be too scathing. But I won't be seeing him on the farm, that's for sure

If you've seen FBS at Glastonbury before and you're looking to expand your horizons, go elsewhere, there's a broad range of electronica across the site. If you want to party with like-minded souls in a fun atmosphere and you're not assed if you've heard Star 69 ten times previously, then head over to whichever of the various sets Norm's playing. I always try to catch one set, just for the vibe, but one will do...

Is he *still* playing that? FFS. 

He seems to love playing it at Glasto whenever he pops up. Doesn't he have a new tune with Coxy this year? Will probably be slamming that. It's actually not a terrible tune, bit acidy.

I usually end up seeing him because it's the only way I can coax my non dance music loving mates to a dance act. Then when they are warmed up I can then usually lead them (like a pied piper) onward to other more substantial acts 🙂 (if not I usually go and lose myself alone in SE corner)

Ha! He's definitely a gateway act! From Fatboy Slim at Silver Hayes, straight over to Squarepusher on IICON...😂

If you've seen one FBS show, you've pretty much seen em all. Preset, heavily edited and unashamedly bags of fun. I find it hard to criticise someone so passionate about the genre, but I would like to see him revert back to his big beat roots from time-to-time, rather than the generic EDM he's spun for the past decade. There's absolutely nothing avant garde about Norm's personality or creative output, he's extremely likeable but I can totally understand why his brand of big-room EDM isn't for all lovers of electronica. But what you see is what you get, and you have to respect the guy's longevity, his musical output spanning thirty years and an obvious love for all things Worthy Farm.

Btw, that Snowbombing crowd is great. Kids from all across Europe gathering for the first proper festival of the year. Think Bestival on ice, rather than the Henley Regatta.

I've been told - to be fair, the snowbombing comment was snobbish and ill-informed. Mea culpa.

I wonder is he booked? I haven’t seen his name yet. He played on the glade in 2019 during the headliners, tiny crowd but it was fun.

Caught him just after The Cure, was pretty rammed from where we were standing at the back! Really hope he's back again.

Used to play Autechre’s Amber album to death, but I did love my mate’s disparaging summation of it: “handfull of nuts and bolts in a washing machine”

😂😂

My old flat had a particularly noisy washer dryer that always sounded like unreleased Hessle Audio

Were any of you at this? I always come back to it, sounds like it was amazing.

(Bonus questions; what's the best Essential Mix of all time?)

I was! Such a good set, remember going to the bar just as his Opus remix breakdown started and by the time I got back it still hadn’t dropped!

Ha! A guy I worked with lent me two CDs in early 1994. Dubnobasswithmyheadman by Underworld and Incunabula by Autechre. Putting on Dubno... first was probably a sliding doors moment for me in terms of being exposed to more intelligent electronica from what I was listening to up to that point. That said, Autechre, and that particular sound has, and probably will always be a touch too intelligent for my limited taste
