i think we waited two hours for blur to come on. the official decree was that the guitarist had been taken ill but i'm pretty sure that was code for 'oh christ, damon albarn's pissed as a newt.' there was talk of the set being cancled but that turned out to just be fear moungouring.
thak god too since these guys were quite possibly the best thing at t. it would have blown doubly since they were headlining on the final day and it was a damn good note for the festival to go out on. there's nothing quite as intoxicating as being in a crowd of thousands who are all having the time of their life.
hats off to albarn as well. despite possibly not being on the same planet as everyone else, he kept it together. he also gave us some wonderfully abstract banter between songs.
