So that ended up pretty good yesterday,bit of an old folks day but the good times rolled…..
Starting with Candi Staton who did everything you could ever want to hear including her amazing version of In The Ghetto (tho not stand by your man) and got everyone smiling and raving to You Got The Love.
Things got a bit darker for The Duke Spirit on The Park stage but Leila had a blinder and they rocked it.
Ran into Lykke Li which is always nice and then gathered will all the other wise folks for the mighty Edwyn Collins.starting with falling and laughing and taking us through his whole career the effect was as stunning as it was indoors at dingwalls last year.Everyone is aware of Edwyn’s recent medical issues but to watch this show is just to see an amazing writer and performer as good as he’s ever been.
With half of Aztec Camera in tow!wonderful.
Wish I could say the same about john cale.another hero but just didn’t do it today.
Stopped in to see A Trak dropping a more pop dance set than I expected for Radio 1 before regrouping for the Crbs headlining slot at the john peel stage .
Over an hour of mad singalongs ensued and the atmosphere in the tent was amazing.We were treated to one new song which was an absolute belter and makes me very excited for the next record,
Rounded of the day watching the telly coverage of the main stages and were thankful we hadn’t been near them all day.
No rain overnight and its almost Los Campesinos time…….
