Michael Eavis angry that Wombles booked for Glastonbury

Glastonbury chief Michael Eavis is angry that one of his bookers has booked The Wombles to play at Glastonbury.

We think he is missing something here. The Wombles may have looked a bit freaky dressed in their furry outfits (we actually know someone who was a Womble!) and their backstage shenanigans are legendary but they actually released a series of prety good glam singles in the seventies and will go down really well at Glastonbury. They are also the sort of daft good time, pretty good on the right drugs kind of band that wil rock Glastonbury and far closer to the festival spirit than the po faced, agency block booked, dustbin indie that clogs up the middle bill at thee events nowadays.

The festival which is bogged down with some pretty dull indie acts on it’s main stages could do with some Womble action, and like the Wurzals the band know how to make a party.

Wombles or U2? We know which band is closer to the spirit of rock n roll and which one we would prefer to see. Plus both bands do look remarkably similar.. and also which one has a better environmental record!

Comments please!

  1. The Wombles would be perfect for Glastonbury. They were clearly so out of it in the 70s they actually had to record a single reminding themselves of what a womble-womble-womble they were. I don’t recall Happy Mondays going that far.

  2. Eavis’s rejection of this successful and much-loved 1970s band just because they are of a different race to the majority of the festival’s bill is a disgrace in this day and age. WOMBLE POWER!


  3. I’d rather see The Wombles than U2. Besides they were more rock ‘n’ roll than they were…what with Chris Spedding on guitar…I’d be overjoyed myself…
