Hans, played by actor and comedian Matt King, this week announced a huge live show spectacular with his ‘Big Beat Manifesto‘ hitting London next year. With hopefully some more dates to follow and fter he totally owned Glastonbury back in the summer. We asked him what his dream Glasto line-up would be.
“Bowie, Cobain and Zappa,” Hans told NME. “But I suppose in light of current circumstances I’d probably have to go for Curse These Metal Hands, Danny Dyer’s Chocolate Homunculus and Man Feelings. Maybe The Chems or Proj as support.”
When asked about previously announced headliners Radiohead, Hans told NME: “I used to be on a pub quiz team with Yorkey but we had to get rid of him ‘cos to be honest his all-round general knowledge (outside that of music) was letting us down a bit, pretty much on a weekly basis. But we do stay in touch and I quite like his band. Bit conceptual sometimes but fuck it, I’ve eaten a tree root from Guatemala that made me think I was made entirely out of tiny glass figurines of British garden birds – so there’s nothing wrong with a bit of experimentation.”
When asked about other rumoured headliners Foo Fighters, Oasis and Ed Sheeran, Hans replied: “Cock-rock fakers. Merely a rumour. And the living embodiment of everything that’s wrong with this world in the lumpen shape of one lard faced talentless, guitar strumming boy man.”
Glastonbury 2017 will run from 21-25 June. Emily Eavis recently spoke to NME to deny the rumours that Daft Punk and The Stone Roses would be headlining.
Featuring ‘special guests’ and a night like no other, Super Hans’ Big Beat Manifesto will be at The Electric Brixton in London on 10 March, 2017. For tickets and more information, visit here.
