Review – Glasvegas – 2009
52 DAYS TO GO
Sunday evening at Glastonbury last year was awesome, it ended for me with a rousing set from The Prodigy and started with Karen O mesmerising everyone with a violently dancey set that was spellbinding. In between were Scotlands Glasvegas.
Personally, I thought they were awesome, there music is inspiring, uplifting and genuienly exciting. However the crowd really never got going, maybe they were tired, maybe they were waiting for Blur and the Prodigy. Whatever the reason it didn’t really reach the heights it could have.
Nethertheless, I loved it, they threw out all the hits from the album and showed that Guitar rock is still alive and well.
Checking NME website Glasvegas played
‘It’s My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry’
‘Polmont On My Mind’
‘Fuck You It’s Over’
‘Flowers And Football Tops’
‘Ice Cream Van’
‘Go Square Go’
‘Be My Baby’
The review on their website http://www.nme.com/news/glasvegas/45708 descibes the gig as triumphant.
