We were asked by the lovely Annie Nightingale to do a 30min DJ set live from Glastonbury on Radio 1 in 2005. We wrote the Radiohead booty exclusively for the show. I got the idea for the 'Open Your Eyes' vocal whilst watching a film, but I cant remember what the film was called... Maybe 'I Love Huckerbies' or something??? No idea now... but it worked so well on this tune. We then kicked it with our Meat Katie collab which was an exclusive as well... we followed that with Mylo bootleg we also knocked up for the show...
This was followed by a tune we collabed with Phil Hartnoll of Orbital on that came out on Passenger on the Teamplayers album. This was followed by a track we did called 'Boom' (record skipped on that one - keepin it old school yall!) which was suppose to go on our 'Stayfresh' album on Moving Shadow but we didnt have room for it, so we released it on 777 with a Breakfastaz remix on the flip.
Last up was a collab we did ElHornet from Pendulum called 'Girls & Boys' which was also on Teamplayers. And yes, it was totally rammed in that tent. I remember looking out and seeing the Breakfastaz and Inchie from Control Z (PYRAMID) as well as two of my old mates Craig and Chris from legendary rap crew Killa Instinct.
This Glasters was I think the wettest on record. The tent we played in was struck by lightening an hour after we finished. My tent that night got flooded and was left at the site. My sleeping bag and all my clothes soaked. I remember the next morning seeing a man in a canoe going across the site. And to this day I wonder... "who thinks to lug a bloody canoe to Glastonbury???"
Great night, great memories and a great crowd... we love ya!
