The Shellac Sisters at Glastonbury

It’s official!  The Shellac Sisters smashed it at Glastonbury!  Armed with four gramophones and six boxes of 78rpms we trotted down to the Glade each day for 3pm to charm festival-goers with our old-skool tunes.  They loved us! 

Highlights for me were:

1 – first sight of our wonderful venue – a beautiful bandstand called The Spike in a leafy woodland area.

2 – hearing the gramophones beautifully sound balanced by the brilliant engineers – they sounded fabulous.

3 – seeing a monkey and a banana on our dance floor (not at the same time, alas)

4 – hearing the crowd belting out “Singing in The Rain” as it pelted down outside.

5 – everyone grooving to “I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts” – possibly our hit of the festival.

6 – our amazing accommodation at Studio Farrows – yep, there is a CAR in our house…

7 – being interviewed by Matt Everitt for the Lauren Laverne Show on BBC 6 Music.  You can catch it on “listen again” for a couple more days – we are at around 2:36 – Shellacs on BBC

8 – the crowd refusing to leave at the end of our set on day 2 and chanting: “One more tune!  One more tune!  One more tune!”

We all had a lovely, lovely time – I bet we had more fun than Metallica!
