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!
