GUEST SPOT #69 - The Bad Shepherds - 'Rise'

To get the TuneDr Team perfectly in the mood for Latitude Festival this weekend, our Guest Spot from Brian brilliantly evokes the festival vibe having been to Glasto this year. Anyone else got any festival stories for us? If so, submit them here now!

The Bad Shepherds - 'Rise' (2009)

Decisions Decisions 
Who to see where to be 
What to pack for the craic 
Forecast torrential wellies essential 
Jacket with hood everything good 
Circle of stone setting the tone 
Guinness in hand bring on the band 
Riot predictions Blonde predilections 
Sky turns to crud grass becomes mud 
High spirits remain despite all the rain 
Music beguiling everyone smiling 
Fancy dress wearing memory sharing 
Glitter on faces searching for spaces 
Festival cider another mud slider 
Buggies wheelchairs and crutches fight the grounds clutches 
Strumpets with crumpets brass section trumpets 
Aromas intoxicate stages to navigate 
Hot food inviting Suarez still biting 
Lightning exposed pyramid closed 
Lily was blunt Blatter’s a cunt 
Crowd sings harmonic Dolly iconic 
Ballet so moving all are approving 
Memories return to me Thunderbirds F.A.B. 
May the road rise with Rick and Benns’politic 
Glastonbury two oh one four I leave you wanting so much more 
To Michael and Emily too Chapeau! Merci Beaucoup.
