Me Plus One

The Fratellis
Notoriously one of Britain's most rabble-rousing bands, the tipple-friendly Glaswegians' rollicking anthems should go down a storm at Glasters. If you fancy drowning your mates in lager or dancing with underwear on your head, this is the band to provide the soundtrack.*
Where to see them: Friday, Pyramid Stage, 7.45pm

Kasabian
Before they were famous, Britain's "people's band" read about Altamont and staged their own mini-festivals on a Leicestershire farm. Now they're living out their fantasies for real,** and with festival-slaying anthems like Empire and bosom buddies like Oasis, you never know who (or what) might join them onstage.
Where to see them: Friday, Pyramid Stage, 9.15pm


With the announcement of the official lineup for Glasto yesterday, Queen Bee, Kazza and I have been talking a LOT about said lineup.

With QB, we've been mourning her inability to obtain tickets, despite making it into the ticket lottery.

(and I'm not sure she knows
Dirty Pretty Things have been added to Saturday's bill. The same day as Babyshambles. Shhhhhh.....)

With Kaz, we've been speculating on potential backstage activities of the Friday bands. Because that's what we do.

I'm sure that all bands will go home early, for church (or synagogue).

Because, it's not like-

-
Fratellis videos frequently feature half-dressed Vargas-type girls

-
Kasabian- well, I'm sure the Lads from Leicester would never do anything naughty, despite Serge's resemblance to the Prince Of Darkness

-
Amy Winehouse likes a drink or ten

-
Young Alex Turner has ever dropped his trousers (while massively drunk) and urinated in front of Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz. Allegedly.

-
Wee The View Lads have ever-


  • drank 2 grand worth of booze (all of them) & knocked people over whilst doing running handstands (Kyle)
  • been banned from all Travelodge hotels after leaving the bathtub on while at the pub (Kieren)
  • had a makeup artist cover up their zits and hickies before opening for Big Brother at the Prince's Trust concert series (all of them)

So, I'm not thinking much mischief will be made backstage.
*"If you fancy drowning your mates in lager or dancing with underwear on your head, this is the band to provide the soundtrack."
If I knew nothing else about the Fratellis, this sentence would make me buy their album.
**"Now they're living out their fantasies for real..."
Kasabian. Fantasies. Bet Thomas's involve Star Wars.

*falls over dead*

YEAH!

Man you know how to grab my attention. Calling him the Prince of Darkness. Appealing to my evil metal side... Dirty dirty tricks!

I knew you'd like that one!

Eeeevil Sergio. Love it.

I'm trying not to think of Thomas and fantasies. Because that might kill me for sure.
