Well on the whole I thought it looked like a pretty weak Glasto line up, but can there be such a thing? of course not. So what if Daft Punk didn’t play or anyone major in Electronica, no Aphex , no Kraftwerk, no Orbital… oh well.
You might be interested in the Arctics or the Stones or Primal Screams, but to be honest what have they done recently to break boundaries or ignite musical creativity?? Tell me.. no seriously tell me…. BUT wait….
Click on the GLASTONBURY MAN link above for hours of class music performance, my highlights were Chic doing a ‘Nile Rodgers wrote everyhting in the 80’s set’. Fair play he kind of did unless your into Metal. Chic!
My highlights were of course a little more alternative, so in no particular order;
Chase and Status – “absolutely T for Tremendous” Chase and Status
Don’t Don’t beleive the …. if you dont know the lyric then your reading the wrong blog – Immense in every way Public Enemy
Azealia Banks – Old skoool house / rap / rave music, no EDM Yankee shizzzle here, just pure dance music class – Azealia Banks
Ok so not so alternative, but argue with me on this, I dare you!! The XX
Jessie Ware – doing what she does London stylee…Jessie Ware
Portishead were of course mysterious and magical, amazing performance - Portishead
and James Blake added his soulful complex electronic blend to the fray – James Blake
What were your highlights, on iplayer or in real life ‘like you have too much money really, posho!!!’
