East 17 At Glastonbury - NME Gets High-Fived By Brian Harvey

So the big news last night (apart from the whole tragic MJ thing) was the appearance of East 17 at the Dance Lounge. Maybe it's the seen-The-Whip-100-times ennui of a music journo, maybe it's nostalgia, and of course there's a dash of irony there, but I was pretty excited to catch Brian "I can eat twelve Es and be fine" Harvey and the other two (no Tony Mortimer) - and two delays meant by the time they went on a half ten so was half of Worthy Farm. The place was rammed, so I snuck round to the VIP bit and waited for them to come on.

While the middle of the set was marred by the major news breaking, they did a pretty good job, finished with 'Stay Another Day' and Brian hi-fived me on the way out which will make my sister jealous at least.
