I have nothing to say.

I would like to see Spacey Jane come over from Australia, they are pretty big out there now but having made a dent in the UK yet really

Still don't think they're booking garbage like Maneskin 

I mean do you think they are garbage because of the Eurovision connection? I feel like they have some good tunes and they are a pretty tight band.

They seem to be playing absolutely every festival going this year so I expect them to be at Glastonbury.

Nah Eurovision has its place, I just think they're blatantly awful. 

I was surprised they won to be honest, it was a pretty strong field I thought. France were robbed.

They're properly shit. It's wild when people say 'oh you just think they're rubbish because they came through Eurovision' when, like... would anyone be interested in them if it wasn't for that? Achingly generic tunes and they're even dressed up like Jane's Addiction like it wasn't clear enough they're a *devil horns* rawwwwk band.

Because they are a bit of a novelty at the moment they'll probably get the Babymetal slot and in five years time be a "oh yeah, I forgot about them" for anyone in attendance.

There are tons of good rock bands about, they’re just not the types of bands who become massive, and that’s perfectly fine. Rock isn’t in the pits, it’s just not that popular at the moment, but that’s not really relevant if you’re not someone who just listens to the radio or whatever.

I could easily fill a day at Glastonbury seeing bands like black midi, Squid, Big Thief, Fontaines D.C., Gilla Band, Turnstile, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and have gotten my money’s worth. All bands that are releasing good music at the moment. Doesn’t have to be a new band drawing a massive crowd on the Pyramid for you to enjoy it.

Don’t even have a problem with Maneskin playing a big slot. Shit bands get big slots every year. Look at  Bastille, Years and Years, Royal Blood, Blossoms, TDCC playing the Pyramid in recent years.

Gang of Youths and Ocean Alley before SJ for me.

Has the Lime Cordiale/Idris Elba collaboration made any impact in the UK?

Even though they are #cancelled now, the best album released in recent years is You Won’t Get What You Want be Daughters which is as rock as an album can possibly be rock.

Why are they #cancelled? So hard to keep up with it all.

As for bad bands getting big slots at Glastonbury, didn’t The Fratellis sub one year?!

Lingua Ignota released a statement recently saying the person she’d been singing about abusing her on her last album was Alexis Marshall from Daughters. The things detailed in the statement were particularly grim.

Yeah The Fratellis subbed in 2008. To be fair I think A Heady Tale and a few songs from the debut album kinda bang. Wouldn’t mind seeing them open the Other or something for a nostalgic laugh (they were one of the first guitar bands I liked, debut album came out when I was 10).

Would like both of them two, and last dinosaurs + the chats. I hadn't heard of Lime Elba until i saw a poster yesterday so i'd guess probably not

They were 3rd the year prior as well, just nudged up a slot for whatever reason. Kasabian repeat subbed in '07 and '09, The Kooks subbed in 2007 off one album. Some dismally uninventive bookings back during peak indie.
