Finger firmly out of arse

The BBC have updated lots of the artist pages on their Glasto site with 30 minute highlights videos. Well worth having a look about. Most noteworthy is the arrival of the Elbow highlights from last night. A wonderful performance of simply splendid songs. As I updated this morning’s post to say, Massive Attack are on there and, having seen it on the red button this afternoon, it’s a treat and a half.

Neil Diamond was really rather good earlier, and not just when performing some of the excellent songs from his recent Rubin-assisted albums. Mark Ronson struck me as rather inessential, despite liking the album itself, and Goldfrapp were a little odd. Did the maypole dancers realise that the pervy cameraman would get close enough to show the whole world their pants? He did, you know.

Solomon Burke and The Verve to come, and who knows what else is the magic world of le button rouge. Or something.

  1. Sorry Gaz, found myself largely oblivious to Glastonbury this year and your write-up doesn’t suggest that it was particularly essential viewing either.

    Did see Ethiopiques late on BBC4 though and they were brilliant.
