  • The Idles At Glastonbury 2019

    I caught a clip of this band on the BBC programme about the best of Glastonbury.
    To say it blew me away would be an understatement.

    This is just about the most honest and searing performance I have ever seen.
    It's raw, loud and honest..................and no, it's not punk!

    I attach 2 clips, the first clip is the performance that was shown on the BBC, and the second clip is their full gig at Glastonbury.
    What you have here is a band asking pertinent questions about racism, sexism, homophobia et al.
    In other words they're asking all the questions that most of the mainstream music world is failing to address.

    Have you ever seen a bunch of musicians enjoying themselves so much?

    By the way, the guitarist jumping around in his Calvin Klein's is a dentist.

    Weirdly I'd just cast this to my tv to watch, and when it ended the same clip was playing on BBC1
    They certainly seemed to be having fun (except the one who was crying). I'll have to take your word about the lyrics though as I couldn't understand a word they were singing.
    So I am officially old.

        I've been aware of the group for a while now. I think they have 2 albums out.
        If I was a teen / early 20s I'd probably be really into it. There's no doubt there's lots of emotion there.

        As it is now, the music doesn't do much for me and that's all that matters to me these days. The music itself has to be interesting.
        There's a young group called black midi that are being talked about a lot right now. There debut album came out last month. They get labelled as experimental rock often. The vocals are a little strange but overall I like them.

        The link is to a short live set on Youtube.

        These are not clues, Fred.
        It is not yarn leading us to the dark heart of this place.
        They are half-glimpsed imaginings, tangle of shadows.
        And you and I floundering at them in the ever vainer hope that we might corral then into meaning when we will not.
        We will not.

          Thanks for the heads up Ozzy, I'll certainly check them out.

            Just tell me when Hawkwind comes on.

            You've got the coolest user name I've ever seen, Barnflatpeterwyngarde.

              Hey Scott, you've sussed my secret.
              part of the ridiculous moniker is an affectionate nod to Peter Wyngarde.

              Don't tell anyone though

                I know they played on the accoustic stage at the recent Glastonbury. Also, Nik Turner played 4 sets over the Glastonbury weekend. I don't think Hawkwind's set is on BBC though?
                The last time I saw Hawkwind was in 1984 at Stonehenge.

                  Wow .. The Stranglers and Hawkwind getting mentions. When I was a kid I used to follow The Stranglers on tours. Still my favourite band.
                  Any big Stranglers fans out there ?

                    Glastonbury mainly serves to remind us that we are getting old. In 1995, I was climbing the Glastonbury perimeter fence with two large bottles of Strongbow in my backpack to see The Cure. In 2019, I sat on my sofa with a bottle of Prosecco and a baby-monitor to watch The Cure in HD and Dolby Digital...
