The Reverend And The Makers make Glastonbury debut

Jon McClure also thanks Bjork 'for lending him her speakers'

The Reverend And The Makers made their Glastonbury debut on the Other Stage this morning (June 22) as the rain finally gave way to sunny conditions.

Longtime Arctic Monkeys mate Jon McClure played a series of tracks from his forthcoming debut ‘The State Of Things’ including recent Top Ten single ‘Heavyweight Champion Of The World’.

The singer, who was sporting a chequed shirt with blue shoulder pads, was on jovial form reciting his own poems in between each song.

During the set he joked: “I’ve got Bjork‘s speakers here that can’t be bad.”

As the band launched into ’18-30′ he added: “Anyone whose been to Benidorm, Ibiza or Faliraki and acted like a cunt, this one’s for you. I went to Ibiza at the weekend. Jesus it makes you proud to be British.”

Keyboardist Laura Manuel also teamed up with McClure on vocals for ‘He Said He Loved Me’.

The band are due to hit the Saloon 25 for a midnight performance later.

The Reverend And The Makers played:

‘Miss Brown’

‘Heavyweight Champion Of The World’

‘Opening Your Window’

‘Armchair Detective’



‘He Said He Loved Me’
