I personally haven't watched much because the TV coverage would probably just annoy me. I've watched a couple of sets live online though. Following revelations that The Libertines new album will be different from their previous material and will feature piano, organ and be produced by a guy who's done stuff with people like One Direction, they managed to slip in 2 new tracks without me even noticing. Perhaps they'll be different on record...
Anyway, I thought they were much more coherent than usual and Pete looked quite well.

Of course I'm in no way biased, but I thought Spiritualized were pretty amazing last night on The Park Stage. It gave them the opportunity to play a few lesser known tracks. New song 'Here It Comes (The Road, Let's Go)' is getting better every time I hear it. Can't find the Glasto version online yet, but this one from a while back is almost identical apart from having a less noisy ending...

2nd EDIT: Here's the full set because I know everyone really cares! :wink:

Every year I watch a bit, knowing that all it's really going to do is remind me that TV strips most of what is good out of live music. And that's what happens - plenty of half decent stuff going on, but it sounds hollow on the telly.

Sleaford Mods was the only thing I could watch all the way through. Motorhead are ace of course, but if you ain't there...

Most of the rest were bands I half-like at best. We did watch 3 songs of Spiritualized while having our tea last night. It was the only thing the kids would tolerate, weirdly.

Yeah, drugs, religion (or lack of) and relationships ending (all with a healthy dose of swearing) is exactly what kids are into these days!

I'd love it of Jason and Youth were in the studio right now putting the finishing touches to some tracks about the dangers and the highs of Calpol for the new album!

the only thing I watched start to finish was the Super Furry Animals set, which I thought was brilliant and the last 2 songs (mountain people and the man don't...) just highlighted how bereft of ideas most bands are.
I saw a few bits of others but my patience for tv music is limited

Oh, meant to ask, who was the guy that did "the Broom" song just before Fat White Family. Sure I've heard it before, but couldn't place him.

On the bill it had The Staves going on before Fat White Family, but I'm guessing it wasn't them.

My missus watched SFA's set and thought it was pretty amazing.

Yeah, it was a bloke who came on by himself and did one rather entertaining song. The Brooooooom The Brooooooooom.

Looks like its on iplayer as part of the FWF set.
