Finally Sundays reviews. This is all a bit faded now but then again it was at the time! Sunday was a drunken day….

Who’d have thought that Rolf Harris’ graveyard slot would have got one of the biggest crowds of the weekend. He went through his usual routine (Two Little Boys, Waltzing Matilda) – the wobble board was in action. The crowd provided both funny banners (Rolf, I think I’m pregnant!) and a couple of crazy guys dressed in bouncing Kangaroo outfits. Wild! Rolf may be getting on a little but he can work a crowd and a few people had tears in their eyes after Two Little Boys.

Caught a little Manu Chao between stages. Although following on after Rolf, and although there was an exodus of bodies, those who remained had a treat. Blue States performing over on the dance tent had a small band of followers. Although only a couple of hundred sat and chilled to the relaxed beats of Blue States – they performed well and made me very sleepy. A drastic contrast to the wild antics of the previous day in the Dance Tent, but definitely required for a dozy Sunday afternoon.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC) woke me up a bit. Even standing half way back, their brand of punchy rock music Jesus and Mary Chain style was enjoyable if a little samey. They played a good majority of their album tracks and a couple of B-sides (including the cheery track entitled ‘Kill the US Government’…)

Mr. Scruff was foot tappingly good but by this time I was quite drunk, went back to the tent for a short lie down and woke up at about midnight missing all the evening bands…. Still – went out and enjoyed the tribal drum delights of the stone circle for the last time and got to bed about 4am – probably the earliest night I went to sleep.

So that was glastonbury 2002 – excellent weather considering it’s rained every day since getting back and the world does still seem a little bit different. Roll on 2003!
