Some of this year’s music festivals have decided it’s wise to skip a year in the light of present economics. However others, such as Glastonbury and Bestival are increasing their spend and between them have already secured Neil Young, Kraftwerk, and Massive Attack, according to this promotional item, oh excuse me I mean ‘news report’, from 6 music. “In recent months, festivals from Scotland to the Isle of Wight have been cancelled due to the economic slowdown.”, it states.

Here are how some of the 2009 lineups look so far…

Kraftwerk, Massive Attack, Soulwax/2manydjs, MGMT, Fleet Foxes, Bat for Lashes, Klaxons, Seasick Steve.

1997 The Orb at Glastonbury

I’ve been quite enjoying the Orb’s current album The Dream, which makes a change from several of their previous releases. So I have to give this posting a quick mention…

“Download a live set recorded at Glastonbury. ..recorded and broadcast by Radio 1, recorded to cassette and transferred/tape hiss removed with Goldwave. I think there’s even a snippet of the late great John Peel at the end, as he used to handle much of Radio 1’s Glastonbury coverage in those days.”

Peel Video And Request

There’s another ‘make-over’ planned for this site in the new year. I just love to tinker. However, behind the itchy fingers lie the twin desires of original content and building up the amount of Peel files available at any time.

I’ve just added a new video file courtesy of Numpty to UKNova folk probably need not apply. Screenshots here.

So what would you like to see – or not see? What’s good or bad about the site right now?

I’d really like to know what you think!

Thanks in advance :->

Peel: July 2003 – programme 2

No confessional today I’m afraid. I know how much you were enjoying the jaunt into my troubled psyche but you’ll just have to put up with a dusty old copy of the John Peel show for now. Tsk!

2nd July 2003: More Glastonbury highlights in the form of the Flaming Lips and more familiar fun with technology.
