Tame Impala on festivalgoers: ‘A fucking hoard of Tarzans scoping out chicks’

Kevin Parker says at some festivals, only 10 per cent of people pay attention to the music.  Speaking after their set at Bonnaroo festival (June 16), Parker told Rolling Stone that crowds at festivals have changed in recent years.

“It was a bit more wholesome back then,” he said of watching Kings of Leon in 2006 at Australia’s Big Day Out. “Back then, it was more about the music. Now, not so much. Now it’s more about muscles and how little clothing you can wear. I guess it’s the cool thing now to go to a festival. I’ve played festivals in Australia. If it’s a dance music festival or mainstream festival, there’s maybe like 10 per cent who pay attention to the music. You just see guys with muscles – essentially Tarzan. A fucking hoard of Tarzans that are like, ‘I just want to scope out all the chicks!'”

Speaking recently about when the band might follow-up their second album ‘Lonerism’, which was named  Album of 2012 by NME, Parker said that the prospect of making another record “doesn’t excite” him. Meanwhile, it was recently announced that bassist Nick Allbrook has left Tame Impala and has been replaced by his Pond bandmate Cam Avery.

The Pond frontman, seen recently singing feathery backing vocals on Tame Impala’s cover of OutKast’s “Prototype,” will continue with his other music projects. Cam Avery, also of Pond, will replace Allbrook on bass for his prior group, the Australian space rockers’ behind last year’s SPIN Essential album Lonerism.

Allbrook’s last show with Tame Impala came on Saturday night at Belvoir Amphiteatre in Perth, Australia, according to a post on the band’s website. The band wrote that Allbrook “is hopping off the Tame Impala band wagon so that he can try and screw his head back on, and make an attempt to assimilate back into society. A task the rest of us fear we will one day have to perform….”

The talented Allbrook isn’t fully rejoining civilian life, though. “All bands and projects and stuff will keep going, it’s just hard to keep them all going if you’re touring all the time,” he told NME. “The only bad part will be not seeing my mates every day. I love them more than anything.”

Tame Impala still have a number of festival and tour dates coming up, including a handful in North America. They will be performing in two shows at Terminal 5 in NYC in October.

Haim Drama @ Glastonbury: Haim bassist says she ‘almost died’ onstage at Glastonbury

Haim’s bass player Este Haim says she “almost died” when playing the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury earlier today (June 28).Este Haim, who said she’s diabetic, declared after her band’s “triumphant performance”  that she had forgotten to eat before Haim’s lunchtime set. Recalling what happened on stage, she said that her arms went numb mid-song and she thought she was going to pass out.”I almost died,” Este said. “We were in the middle of a song and I’m diabetic and I didn’t eat before my set like a smart, good diabetic does, and I remember not being able to feel my arms, and I was like ‘This is not a normal feeling when I’m playing music’.”  But  even though  she “almost died” super woman Este Haim played two more songs.

She continued: “And I thought that I was gonna pass out and my eyes kind of glazed over at the end of the song and I had to go offstage because I thought that I was going to die in front of 25,000 people.” She then joked that if she had died onstage it would have made for “an amazing funeral. The most beautiful way to die!”   Hungry for publicity?  Well, Haim play again at 4.15 pm on The Park stage tomorrow (June 29).  hmmm ,,.

The three sisters  grew up in the San Fernando Valley, listening to the 1970s classic rock and Americana records of their music-loving parents. While they were still at school their parents formed a family band called Rockinhaim to play cover versions at local charity fairs, with Israeli-born father Mordechai (“Moti”) on drums and mother Donna on guitar.   Danielle and Este were members of the Valli Girls,  an all-girl group “inspired by Pat Benatar, Blondie, Gwen Stefani, The Pretenders, and Queen” from Southern California that was signed to Columbia Records / Sony Record.

Crowd @ Glastonbury 2013

According to festival organizers, a total of 101,514 people had arrived onsite for this year’s Glastonbury Festival at 10am today (June 27), despite the music programming not officially starting on Friday (June 28), up from 90,000 at that time in 2011.

The festival returns having taken a year off in 2012, and will be headlined by Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones and Mumford and Sons. Though the performance schedule does not kick off until Friday (June 28), thousands of fans arrived onsite early, with campsites bustling from Wednesday morning.

Early statistics reveal that there has been fewer crimes reported than at this stage in 2011. There have been 40 reported crimes in total, including 22 thefts from tents. There have also been 24 drug-related offences, 12 of which are for possession of controlled substances. In total, there are 600 police officers working at the festival this year.

Speaking about his band’s headline slot on Saturday (June 29), guitarist Keith Richards said the Rolling Stones were “destined” to headline the festival. Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders said recently that the group will “have some fun” with their headline set on Friday night.

Joining the headline acts on the bill will be a number of secret performers with Liam Gallagher yesterday confirming that Beady Eye will perform at 11am on Friday morning on The Other Stage. Despite appearing to confirm the appearance , the frontman did pour scorn on the festival itself, saying: He added: “It’s like Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas. I’m not having it.

Glastonbury 2013: Day One is in full swing

Glastonbury 2013: Day one as it happens

Glastonbury 2013 is in full swing, with acts including Peace, Jake Bugg and Beady Eye already having performed.Jake Bugg debuted two new songs and included a Neil Young cover in his well-attended afternoon Pyramid Stage set. The first new track was a dark, moody, rocky number featuring the lyrics, “There’s a lot I need to tell you there’s a lot that you should know/Oh, anyway, it’s been a long long day”. The second, ‘Slumville Sunrise’, was a more frenetic country-rock stomp. After an acoustic section with stripped-down takes on ‘Country Song’ and ‘Broken’, Bugg covered Neil Young’s ‘Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)’, before closing with ‘Lightning Bolt’.

Peace took to the stage at 3pm at the John Peel arena, shortly after an appearance by The 1975 which saw the tent filled to capacity. Braving the mud in white dungarees, Peace’s lead singer Harry Koisser walked on stage, took out a sword and waved it above his head before starting the set. Opening with ‘Follow Baby’ the Birmingham marked their first Glastonbury appearance with a set filled with tracks from their debut album ‘In Love’ including ‘Wraith’, ‘Bloodshake’ and ‘Float Forever’.

The much hyped Haim opened their set, which was almost an hour long, with some of the same pop songs they have played at shows like cheesy singles ‘Forever’ and ‘Falling’, and adding to the set  ‘The Wire’ and ‘Honey and I’, which are thought to feature on their forthcoming debut album.  As they usually do to compensate for the lack of recorded songs, the bass player Este Haim, after their raucous rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Oh Well’,  beckoned their tour manager onto the stage to take pictures of the band and “document the moment”. At one point, Este left the stage, returning looking “shaky” and telling the crowd  it’s “the problem with being diabetic”. She then performed two songs sitting down, and Alana Haim asked the crowd to “give it up for that trouper over there”. The band finished the set with every member of the group playing drums on a rowdy version of  The Doors’ ‘Let Me Go’.

Earlier, Beady Eye played a secret show at 11am on The Other Stage, at which frontman Liam Gallagher told the crowd he’s “a rock ‘n’ roll star at 11.30 in the morning”..

Dizzee Rascal, Arctic Monkeys and many more are yet to perform.
