Preserved Ephemera

    Wailing, strumming, piping, annoying. Fuels my suspicion that 'World music' means 'rejected by country of origin'. #

    Funky, energetic but somewhat uninspiring. We chatted about holidays & drank tea instead of waving our hands in the air. #
  • 15:50 *Newton Faulkner*
    I dunno. Do we really *need* more charming aucoustic singer-songwriters? Pleasant though, & +points for Bohemian Rhapsody. #
  • 18:31 *John Meyer*
    Not The Elephant Man; a really good blues guitarist with a tight band. Great, though we paid less attention than he deserved. #
  • 18:39 *Neil Diamond*
    The opposite of challenging music: so bland as to be almost inaudible, but oddly popular. I guess my parents had better taste #
  • 20:12 *Goldfrapp*
    Apparently still concussed & wrapped in ribbon by a falling maypole, poor Alison Goldfrapp can only emit weakly tuneful warbling #
  • 20:14 *Crystal Castles*
    Beeps & beats, shouts & screams. Their bouncy noise was just what I needed to drag me out of my late-festival misanthropy. #
  • 20:46 We all kickin' back, sippin' on Earl Grey in the Dance Village's gangsta rap tea tent. Word. #
  • 22:12 *The Zutons*
    I began their set thinking "Yay, more indie rock!" in a sarcastic voice, but ended up thinking it fairly sincerely. Sound stuff #
  • 22:17 This year's policy of printing 'Love the farm, leave no trace' on the disposable cups & bags has had a definite effect: more ironic litter. #
  • 23:34 *Groove Armada*
    Big, warm, friendly dance music, like a goodbye hug from Glastonbury. But with lasers. #
  • 23:56 Searchlights on cloud inspire a superhero detector: a bank of, say, 120x120 lights iterating through all possible logos to see who responds. #
