Wish I'd Been There

And in further Glastonbury news, a friend writes:

"Lily Allen brought Terry Hall on stage to sing The Specials' "Gangsters" this weekend. Specials guitarist Lynval Golding was already playing in her band.

You can see Billy Bragg dancing on the side of the stage.

She also did a nice version of their Blank Expression earlier in the set and a cover of Blondie's Heart of Glass."

Personally, I find Allen somewhere between a crashing bore and actively annoying, but that sounds like fun nonetheless.

Hey, those are fighting words Mr. Simels. Leave poor Lily alone.

I'm going to have to go back to calling The Hold Steady Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. Or was it Beaver Brown?

If she could get Jerry Dammers and Terry Hall on the same stage it would have admittedly been more of an achievement.
