Last gig of the year!

Was fully expecting to hate it, but actually very enjoyable and enough oddities (as festival sets go) to keep things interesting. James seemed to enjoy it.

It was excellent, surprisingly rough where I was stood. Didn't expect to leave sweaty and hoarse.

Was one if the best festival performances I've seen them do. Some old songs not heard for a while and Jackie Collins was a lovely surprise. Great reaction from the crowd and brilliant ending with tikka tape fluttering down to the end Of ADFL. They really seemed to enjoy themselves, I certainly did. :-)

Also pleasantly surprised at how good it was! Pretty much the best you could ask for in terms of a festival set. Jackie Collins and Masses superb, plus the run of MASH-Despair To Where-La Tristesse. Lively crowd where I was stood too.

The rest of festival was pretty good, enjoyed Elbow. Pretty tough act following that Manics set but made a decent go of it, and they dedicated a song to the boys for their support when they were starting out.

I was very surprised to hear them make reference to having played a gig in Brockwell Park in Herne Hill of all places... sure enough, they did, in 1994.

On Facebook I'm seeing petitions for the Manics to do a John Lewis Christmas ad. (Is it John Lewis or something else?)
Was that based on a remark James made on stage?

Yeah, the line was something like.. "Sponsored by John Lewis! They could ask us to do this year's Christmas song! *guitar strum* Death and despair, it's Christmas..."
