Clashfinder dilemma's

Post by Watergirl » Fri Jun 14, 2013 3:58 pm

Sadly this is a Frank-free topic. I guess it just wasn't to be.
I am scrutinizing the Glastonbury Clashfinder to come up with a plan. I am not a relaxed festival goer who goes with the flow...! I like to cram in as much as possible and don't mind the odd hike. Inevitably there are some clashes and I would be curious if anyone had opinions/advice on the following:

Frightened Rabbit or Emmanuel Jal?
Lucy Rose or Seasick Steve?
Billy Bragg or Fatoumata Diawara?
Ed Harcourt or Beans On Toast?
Mumford & Sons or Lucinda Williams?

Frightened Rabbit
Seasick Steve
Billy Bragg or Fatoumata Diawara?
Ed Harcourt
Mumford & Sons

I went for Ed over Beans cos its easier to catch him live than it is Ed. Plus Beans might play more than once.

Having seen both Lucy Rose and Seasick Steve, SS was far better as Lucy Rose live isn't that much of a different experience to listening to the record.

I picked FR and Mumford because I've not heard of the other option.

Great festival; still on a high....! I got a pedometer out of curiosity which showed that I walked 28 miles / 45 kilometres during the festival!
Didn't get to see everything I had hoped but most. Opted for Lucinda rather than Mumfords, which I am happy about. Missed Seasick Steve. Frightened Rabbit were okay, but you get a bit spoilt during a weekend like this. It was only my second time seeing Beans On Toast (first time was at Wembley) and I really enjoyed his radical round up thing with Billy Bragg. Wasn't all that keen on Ed Harcourt.
Highlights - in this order:
Stones - best headliner I have ever seen at Glastonbury - and I saw Bruce there....
Nick Cave - I am a fan anyway but he was absolutely amazing on Sunday; didn't cater his set to the waiting Mumford crowd one bit; just came out and roared
Billy Bragg - best I have ever seen him; love the country band and the peddlesteel
Sinead O'Connor, Primal Scream, Gretchen Peters, Glen Hansard.
The festival was a bit thin on new discoveries for me. I liked Haim and was impressed with Jake Bugg.

Beans was brilliant down the rabbit hole, including his reggae song, which had me in actual tears. Lucy Rose was good there too. First aid kit were fantastic, noah and the whale good in the sunshine, shangri la was good, but far too rammed, even on the Sunday.
