Richard Ashcroft is a one-poet kind of guy. After rearranging William Blake’s ‘London’ as ‘History’, he’s only gone and re-bored another of the mystic’s opening lines: “Will those feet in modern times walk on soles that were made in China?” Richard herein queries. Dicky, whatever the question is, when you say it like that, the answer’s ‘yes’. Maybe not the ‘Bitter Sweet Second Symphony’ some were hoping for, but pitched confidently between ‘A Song For The Lovers’ and ‘Neon Wilderness’, as its swirling cauldron coda of feedback closed their Glastonbury set, 50,000 faces nonetheless glazed into awe.
