Nice to see that Glastonbury this year was a washout. The post-festival comments were all along the lines of:
‘It didn't matter about the rain or mud, Coldplay were absolutely amazing’
but that’s clearly a load of old cock. I was at the two real mud-fests (‘97 and ‘98) which made this look like a picnic in a desert and it does matter and it’s not fun. The positive reviews stem from a collective will to see that the festival is ‘great’ or, at the very least, ‘worth it’, despite the weather. It’s not. It’s the same blind faith and desire to see something replicate a glorious past as when Second Coming came out and people were willing it to be great.
In reality, just like the Vale of Avalon last weekend, it was an unrelenting shower of shit.
