i do have some friends with totally polarised music taste to my own. to be fair, they are more accommodating and will dance to my music when they’re pissed. bar a situation in which i have drunk a vat of absinthe and can only see colours and feel sounds, nothing can induce me to listen to anything guitar-based.
jay-z has never been a favourite of mine for that very reason – he embraces rock music and he’s the only hiphop act aforementioned friends own cds by. noel gallagher really is showing how irrelevant and archaic his perspective is. the same noel gallagher who was happy to be supported by prodigy, chemical brothers and other dance acts in knebworth 12 years ago.
now, the fact that i’ve managed to construct an entire post from the glasto lineup and actually watched some of it - that’s progression. fuck bush AND noel gallagher.
shakin’ stevens? i don’t think most of the glasto-goers are old enough to get the irony, but whatever. i had no idea so many genres were covered, albeit in a minor way compared to the dull faceless indie bands.
i’m not saying i would go…i still don’t do mud and tents…
