Glastonbury 2017 (Armchair viewing thread)

There were a couple of exceptions (FJM, National, Radiohead) but in general, the number of standard “guitar bands” was very low…which is more a reflection of industry focus than lack of quality “rock” (or indie rock, if you like) out there.

I enjoyed Nothing but Thieves

I thought the national were poor tbh. And I’m not getting into a Radiohead argument :grinning:

Over the last year though I have enjoyed watching pop/grime artists live a lot more than guitar bands.

Obviously dependent on you’ve seen in the last year I guess.

Unless you just want to pop over here:

just would have been nice if he shut the fuck up occasionally

And maybe stopping Monkey Wrench once it hit the 20-minute mark rather than playing it for what seemed like my entire life

Dave Grohl in “loud obnoxious American” shocker.

I noticed that - during Stormzy and Boy Better Know. Not sure if this is a Grime thing at all.

‘That song doesn’t usually last three hours, but we got into a serious thing … and then I forgot how it ended.’

Just a bit unnecessary. They could have crammed in loads more songs in during that time. The thing is, they started off really well; Times Like These/All My Life/Learn To Fly. I was surprised how much I like The Pretender as well! It all went a bit “eh” really afterwards, except for This Is A Call, which I so desperately wanted to bleed into I’ll Stick Around, but no.

Think when they played Reading a few years back they played Wattershed and it was incredible.
