It's always hard for a band under fire to perform. It's always difficult when your art's being criticized. Franz Ferdinand gave an impeccable, electrifying performance on the Friday in the sun. Their climb into the upper escilons of public consciousness gave them this energy. When you're on top, everythings great and each song glides off you fingertips. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are between labels, and are losing tours everywhere. By all rights they should just stare at thir shoes and whack away at the set before getting off as quickly as possible. Orbital are up next and there are several old men in the audience impatient for their last chance to recapture their baggy E-d up youth (which they won't because Orbital are two old DJs on a mission to bore everyone with incessent knob twiddling) The whole atmosphere is against them...


Because this is exactly the kind of atmosphere that suits these guys. Remember all those NME covers last year and all the hype about the album? Didn't seem quite right did it? Now it's back to underground underdog status and aha! What's there to rebel against? well whaddya got? They come out and play the usual low and lazy rootsy back-porch stuff at the start. And then Rob grabs a bass and rips into spread your love. And from then on, ladies and gentleman, it is magnificent. Each song has the edge Oasis didn't on Friday. Each has the gusto delivered as if their lives depended on it. Hey, no label wants us! WE DON'T CARE! Six Barrel Shotgun, White Palms and In like the Rose sound quite extraordinary. Sonically like big fucking dirty bombs, hitting the crowd unexpectedly slaughtering the unsuspecting masses. By all rights officials should be dragging them off the stage and charging them under the "stealthily dirty rock n roll act". In fact they're making them turn their heads. Those old fogies are asking "Who are these guys?" There's a floating audience being drawn in by this on their way to see Muse. Oh, and I will kill for a live version of Ha Ha High Babe from Glasto, as it fulfills all the aggressive potential it never reached on the album. It's a regulation set list, sure, but delivered with such aplomb the band are completely irresistible. Muse make a lot of noise on the main stage later. But these three guys seem to have the passion, the pleasure, they live for this. At the end Rob high-fives the entire front row, and Peter says, " we don't have a label at the moment and we can't afford to tour , so it's you guys that put us here. Thank you" No thank you Peter. As the sun sets on the last day at Glasto, and most people are bored with a fairly bland radio 2 line up, THIS is what happened to the rock and roll.

I stupidly started to watch Morrissey, and got really bored by the third song, so some how managed to run to BRMC and make it in time for Whatever Happened. I then made my enterance by shouting "cmon you sexy f*ckeeeeers!" what I think Rob heard cos he did a little grin! BRMC were on top form at Glasto, and I'm so glad I didn't miss all of them. They really made my festival complete and a great set list

This was the high point of my life since i started loving true music the only fault was they didn't play "sure as the sun" BRMC was the best band and they pissed all over muse who are widely seen as a better band. peace

After leaving London at 2 a.m., going 48 hours without sleep, and enduring the mud and rain, it was Sunday. We headed over to the Other Stage's backstage area to pick up our green wristbands (basically AAA for Other Stage) to match our silver ones (access to Pyramid/Other stage backstage camping).

We watched Gomez with photographers (I think the BBC woman fancied Phil), and then walked around aimlessly until I see Robert, who seemed surprised and shocked I actually made it. After a hug and short chat, he went away to do an interview. Phil decided sleep was more important than BRMC at this point (he had to drive to Manchester after the set), so he headed back to the car.

Soon after I caught up with Rob again, who asked if I wanted to go see the Libertines with him. I had to relay the bad news that they'd been replaced by Supergrass ("Not a substitute!" in his words), but we decided we might as well as there was not much else to do.

Bad decision. It pissed down for about 5 minutes. The exact time it took us to get from the Other Stage to the Pyramid, stand around for a couple seconds and get back.

As the show approached, I realized I had no way of getting close to the stage at all, so I asked a nice security guard if I could stand behind the stage with my wrist band. That was when I was informed green meant all access for Sunday.

I saw Pete for the first time, and he pointed out how beautiful the landscape was. The security guys thought he was talking about the cows and were amazed Americans weren't used to them. If only they knew he grew up on a farm...

The show itself was spectacular. Completely awe-inspiring. Pete started on acoustic guitar, Rob joined in and then Nick rounded out the group.

It was a beautiful sight, watching all the people going crazy. I was pleasantly surprised at how big the crowd was since Morrissey was playing the Pyramid at the same time.

After the show, I headed back to their room, had some water, and attempted to warm up. I soon realized how late it was and how early I had to catch the bus from Manchester to London the next morning (long story), so I said my good-byes, and headed back to the car.

The NME later said it was the best Glaso ever, and at least for me, it was.

Having had 2 hours sleep in the previous 4 days, I was a dead girl walking by the time BRMC hit the stage on Sunday night. However, we found the energy to get to the front and boy was it worth it. It was the first time we had seen them in the open air and were slightly apprehensive about that as well as how they would go down in front of a crowd who were mainly gathered to see Orbital who were headlining after BRMC. But the energy from the band really transmitted to the crowd, and they went down a storm. BRMC were definately the highlight of the weekend for me. And I may be bias, but others around were saying so too and they weren't BRMC fans (but they probably are now!).
