The Pigeon Detectives

Everybody Wants Me

Pigeon Detectives, John Peel stage, 18.10pm, Glastonbury festival 2007. Pic Danny North
Leeds’ ugliest have found themselves cursed as a byword for lumpen ladrock. OK, so they look like The Bash Street Kids in leather jackets, but they have displayed something of a knack for crafting guilty Britpop pleasures. However, ‘Everybody Wants Me’ is their nadir – My First Chord Sequence repeated ad nauseum at the exact tempo of a whole field of festival-goers trudging through the mud toward the nearest charger tent.
