Mike Scott's Waterboys get Glastonbury twirling

It's quite a trudge up to the Pyramid Stage, so deep and sticky, but I don't mean to bore you with mud stories -

Mike Scott's Waterboys have just finished their third performance at this year's Glastonbury festival...


Wellies, Weller and Weather, Glasto wades in for final day

Closing day of Glastonbury is well underway, and the rain has been set at 'fine trickle' since about 2am.

Today will see Dame Shirley Bassey do her big numbers on the Pyramid Stage - on a Sunday billing that also includes Manic Street Preachers, Kaiser Chiefs and The Who, who are straight on to the site from headlining Knowsley Hall up in Liverpool last night.


John Fogerty triumphs at Glastonbury

John Fogerty has just played the Glastonbury Jazz/ World Stage (June 23), only his second show in the UK since 1972.

Coming on to massive applause and cheering, Fogerty looked very pleased to be here, saying: " It's beautiful to be here at Glastonbury. I'm so happy to be in England again. But I ain't here to do speeches, I'm here to play rock'n'roll!

Knowsley Hall -- The Who prove they're still the best

"You couldn't bury 'em, could ya..?" So says a genial Scally, somewhat glassy-eyed after an afternoon on the booze and on the scrounge for a cigarette.

20 minutes until The Who!

OK, it's getting very exciting backstage. The biggest tour bus in the world has just hoved into view, and a suited chap, who looks like he probably knew the Krays back in the day, is purposefully standing in front of the door.


Biffy Clyro, CSS and Klaxons defy Glastonbury rain

Apologies for late posting, but got carried away round at the Other Stage, there was a nice run of back-to-back bands that it would have been churlish to try and wade back to the press area.

Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro were as good as I'd hoped they'd be.

Knowsley Hall -- Greetings from Liverpool!

"Don't start! This is my best shirt. And me mum's dead..."


Bjork rules, Arctics whimper, Good morning on Glasto Day 2

Bjork kicks some futuristic arse on Glastonbury opening night...


Sun goes down on Rufus Wainwright at Glasto

Just watched a magnificent sunset go down over Glastonbury, the skies have finally cleared enough to see the burning orange.

Rufus Wainwright put in a magnificent set, with a little help from sister Martha at the end for 'Hallelujah.'


Super Sunny Furry Animals, Glasto Warms Up

Super Furry Animals's just finished a brilliant set, and the sun looks like it's back for a while, woo hoo.

"Juxtapose With You" was simply amazing - lots of silly dancing and flag waving from the audience. I even spot a sun-caught Howard Marks singing along to the poptastic moment in the sun.
