Ralph Phillips, drummer of hip hop/ electro pop outfit Ezra Bang and Hot Machine has come forward to give his account as to why he crashed Brit-pop legend Jarivs Cocker’s set at Glastonbury Festival last week.
I must come forward about this. I had taken to the stage to share a moment with my hero Jarvis before the crowd of brit-pop fans. I played three sets at the festival that weekend with my band Ezra Bang & Hot Machine. Upon my adventures around the festival I saw some fantastic music and a lot of poor music. My point was to highlight and celebrate one of this country's last true heroes of music.
A correction is due; Calmy approaching the stage, I popped the champagne with Jarvis, “What’s this!?” exclaimed the front man, he then took the bottle out of my hands in exchange for the microphone, at which point I was obliged to expound my passions to the 5000 strong crowd. A righteous gesture.
Bring on the next renaissance of music.
