The whoe idea of Glastenbury was to bring MUSIC to the masses, not TALKING. It is typical BBC nonsense - they seem to feel that they need to justify ther presence at the gig by having a presenter there. Once the presenter is there, they need to do something ... and hence the bollocks that they talk....

I guess the number of people posting events will depend on how many are 'in the know'. Most of the stuff I hear about is usually second or third hand. Therefore, this forum is a great place to catch up on new events, rumours, etc.

I agree with The Raven, Rattus and Black & White being at the top, but why has 10 got such a low vote? The music on this album is really strong, and some of the tracks are still played in the live sets today - by both the Stranglers (96 Tears) and Hugh (Out of my Mind). I agree that the ablum was co...

I agree with this - I get really angry when I see people profiting from the band's work via e-bay. It's about time e-bay cracked down on this type of trading!
