I switched off part way through their set - just like last time they were at Glastonbury, they were shit. Get Jon McClure up their - Reverend and the Makers are a Sheffield band who know how to rock. grin

No-one from Sheffield is a dick.

Tru-fax."

I'd dispute the tru-fax, I give you (amongst others), Neil Warnock, Oona King, David Blunkett, Martin Caine, Bobby Knutt, Roy Hattersley, Naseem Hamed and Peter Stringfellow

Ok, maybe I was a tad harsh on Bobby Knuttgrin

I was watching last night with DH and the first thing we said was "he's trying to be like elvis"

I always liked them not now.

they are dicks who have got to big for their pants.

Agreed. Find it so ironic that he sings "you're not from New York City, you're from Rotherham" when he's become this pseudo wanky trans Atlantic cock that he's taking the piss out of.

BTW Craig Charles was interviewing Nile Rodgers! Heis a bloody legend woman!

I was too busy laughing at Craig trying hard not to gurn to follow the interview

I think the rock and roll srtuff from Alex Turner was pure irony tbh. Still.....not to everyone's taste I know.

Re wasted slebs. I guess if I was young and vaguely famous I would enjoy the chance to drink etc at the free Glasto bar and rub shoukders with the famous. You can't blame them! It does though mean the interviewers get a hard time.

I thought they were ok but was bemused by the accent too.

Can't bear Jo Whiley with her sycophancy and fake, smiley sincerity though. Glastonbury has become too much of a "look at me posing, aren't I cool" event for my liking but her interviews are even more painful than most.
