This week: a Glastonbury inspired playlist. I still have plenty to watch on the BBC website, but these are some of my favourites so far. I haven’t uploaded videos from the festival, but full sets can all be watched via the BBC link.
- Catfish & The Bottlemen – Kathleen
I don’t pay much attention to the charts or record sales, but I really hope this band make it big. I saw them in Chester when they became really popular after Homesick won Steve Lamacq’s Roundtable, and they were great. They got good reviews for their set at Glastonbury too, and maybe one day they’ll headline!
- Super Furry Animals – Do or Die
SFA rule. (in the search results for this video, a live performance from CD:UK came up, reminding me how old the song is, and how old I am)
- The Mothership Returns – Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)
I would love to see these live. If I was in Glastonbury, this is definitely where I would’ve spent Saturday night.
And one extra this week: if I was there I don’t think I would’ve watched the Foo Fighters if they played. I’ve seen them live a couple of times and they’re awesome: one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. But I’m not keen on their newer stuff, which is what most fans seem to know and want to listen to. When I saw them in Manchester and they played Monkey Wrench, there was no-one else around me singing along. When they played This is a Call, no-one even knew it! When I saw them in Leeds, they were cut off before the end of their set, so all the crowd could hear was Taylor’s drums. I’m pretty sure it was this song, also my favourite Foo Fighters song, and one of my favourite songs of all time: Everlong.
