The Cribs speaks out about indie during Glastonbury set

The Jarmans also attack fashionistas during appearance

The Cribs speaks out about indie during Glastonbury set
The Cribs spoke out against indie during their performance today (June 22) at the Glastonbury Festival.

The band, who were playing the Other Stage, performed before a packed crowd despite a torrential downpour breaking out during their set.

The band also courted some controversy during their performance criticising both the festival's climate campaign and the other bands on the bill.

Before closer ’The Wrong Way To Be’ bassist Ryan Jarman sarcastically told the crowd: “They want us to speak out about global warming but the biggest problem is the attitude of some indie bands. Isn’t that a bigger problem?”

He also screamed the words: “Fashionistas we don’t need you!” during the end of ’Wrong Way To Be’.

With the crowd chanting “The Cribs are on fire!” - mimicking The View's fans - their frantic set ended with guitarist Gary Jarman jumping into the audience and losing his shirt.

The Cribs played:

‘Hey Scensters!’
‘Our Bovine Public’
‘You’re Gonna Lose Us’
‘Girls Like Mystery’
‘I’m A Realist’
‘Moving Pictures’
‘Men’s Needs’
‘Mirror Kisses’
‘Another Number’
‘Wrong Way To Be’
