Twisted Wheel rock out on Glastonbury John Peel Stage

Oasis support band play lunchtime slot on Worthy Farm

Twisted Wheel helped kick off the musical action on the final day of Glastonbury 2009 today (June 28), playing a lunchtime slot on the John Peel stage.

The Oldham trio proved a popular draw, with a gang of hardcore fans at the front fist-pumping and chanting the band’s name before and throughout the set.

The group of fans were drawing attention for more than just chanting, though.


One of their party was waving a large St George‘s flag with the word ‘clunge’ written across it, while another banner bore the logo of Oldham Athletic FC, the band’s local team.

Twisted Wheel, who have been playing support slots for Oasis throughout the year, opened their set with ‘Lucy The Castle’.

They went on to showcase their frenetic Britpop- and punk-influenced sound with crowd favourites ‘Strife’, ‘She’s A Weapon’ and closer ‘We Are Us’.

“I know it’s Sunday but you’ve gotta move, man,” Brown said before playing ‘Let Them Have It All’, urging fans to surge closer to the stage.

‘You Stole The Sun’ saw crowd participation upped as fans sang along to the chorus shortly before the band signed off with ‘We Are Us’. “I wish you a beautiful evening,” Brown told the crowd before heading offstage.

‘Lucy The Castle’
‘Bad Candy’

‘Let Them Have It All’
