Plus the band cover Prince on the Other Stage
Hot Chip were joined by rapper Wiley and a full brass band during their Other Stage show at Glastonbury tonight (June 28).
The group also covered ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ by their hero Prince during the set.
At 9.15pm (BST), the Redridge Brass Band took the stage and played a brass medley of Hot Chip‘s hits, featuring ‘And I Was A Boy From School’, ‘Over And Over’ and ‘Ready For The Floor’.
The brass band then left to be replaced by Hot Chip themselves. Frontman Alexis Taylor was wearing a bright yellow work suit with yellow ear protectors and had his nose painted a matching colour, while synth player and co-vocalist Joe Goddard sported blue whiskers painted on his face.
The band opened with a percussion-heavy version of ‘Shake A Fist’ before, after three songs, rapper Wiley walked onstage.
The Other Stage crowd responded with huge cheers when they recognised the London-based star, who shouted “how you doin’ Glastonbury?” before performing his hit ‘Wearing My Rolex’ with the band.
The audience sang along enthusiastically to the song, which Hot Chip had previously covered for the BBC Live Lounge.
“We’ve got one more thing to say,” said guitarist Al Doyle near the end of the set, as Taylor stripped down to his vest.
He then suddenly began singing the opening line of recent Top Ten hit ‘Ready For The Floor’, leading the band into the song, prompting huge cheers from the crowd as darkness fell on Worthy Farm.
