A flash of Darkness

Reports that the Darkness wanted to charge Glastonbury £1m this year (against the £75 they got last time around), have quickly been replaced with the news that savvy Michael Eavis thinks they’re just a flash in the pan and never wanted them in the first place.

I’m with Eavis on this one. Squeaking and squealing in spandex while strumming guitars at random may have produced a successful novelty record (or even two), but novelty wears off and by the end of the year I’m confident Oxfam shops everywhere will be overrun with their cast-off CDs. This year they’ll headline Reading and Leeds, but next year they’ll be lucky to make it to Butlins and Pontins.
