Glastonbury 2005

I was at a bit of a loose end this weekend, so I watched some of Glastonbury on the telly. I left the window open and didn't hoover to give me that outdoor feel - or at least, as near as I'm comfortable with.

Hey, what can I say? I'm a city boy.

Anyway, Coldplay left me as cold as ever. Pretty, but shallow. I did enjoy the Kaiser Chiefs, though. Fabulous band. It's not serious stuff, it's just pop - but it's good pop. They just radiate fun. Employment is recommended.

I'm kicking myself that I missed The White Stripes on Friday. I gather that they mainly played stuff from their superb new album, Get Behind Me Satan. I stayed up 'till two in the morning the day I got this album, playing it again and again and drinking too much red wine.

I also enjoyed Roisin Murphy, too. I've not come across her before, but I'm very impressed. In fact, she may be my perfect woman; talented, beautiful, intelligent, interesting, red-headed, high maintainance, and mad as a snake. I may have to marry her.

Typical inattentive bloke.

When I tried to to turn you on to Moloko you were *most* disparraging, but as soon as you've seen her ankles ont' telly and realised she a bit of a babe; she's so 'talented'. Besides, hands off, I saw her first.

What, abandoning Kylie in her hour of need, Michael? I'm surprised at you.

In my defense, I was reading when she came on, so it was the music rather than her looks that first attracted my attention. But I'll tell you what, you can have Roisin if I get Shirley Manson[1].

I recorded (Sky+) all the BBC3 Glasto coverage (all 21 hours of it).
Am about halfway through Saturday night's coverage.

Most of the bands I wanted to see were on the John Peel stage though, so not sure how much of that will be on there (Magic Numbers, Go! Team).

Agreed, Kaisers rocked, as did The Killers.
I think I deleted White Stripes without watching them, oops.
Missed Roisin too, double oops.
