BILLIE EILISH
Glastonbury 2019 [no label, 1CD]

Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts. Other Stage, Worthy Farm, Pilton, UK; June 30, 2019. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV broadcast).

Thanks to hunter212 aka HunterBjork for sharing the HDTV broadcast at Dime.

In March, 2019, American singer-songwriter, model and dancer Billie Eilish released her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? It debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 with 313,000 album-equivalent units in its first week (170,000 of which were from pure sales), making it the second-largest sales week for an album in 2019 behind Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next. It also topped the charts in 15 other countries. Just before the release, by March 21, 2019, the album had been pre-added 800,000 times on Apple Music, the most of any artist to date.]

Thomas Smith, nme.com:

If you missed Billie Eilish’s once-in-a-generation Glasto show, you fucked up big time. Every pop sensation has a real moment at Glastonbury in their rise. Lady Gaga’s came in 2009 when she smashed it on the Other Stage, then compounded the hype with a late-night showing down in the South East corner. Adele’s was a finger-pickin’ acoustic set on a sofa in 2007, a moment she’d refer to when she returned to headline the Pyramid a decade later. As Glastonbury 2019 comes to a close, it’s clear Billie Eilish just had her first Glastonbury moment.

This year has been so big, that Emily Eavis was forced to bump Billie Eilish up the bill for her Sunday showing on the Other Stage. There’s an argument to be made that she could have leap-frogged the rest of the bill and headline Glastonbury’s second stage entirely: she’s that popular.

But this spot works just as well for her. Entering the Other Stage to a screeching-soundtrack and visual set straight from a horror-film, the crowd go bananas for the rising star – every time she prowls the stage, the lucky side scream back. Opening song ‘Bad Guy’ is a thumping pop belter which has the crowd bouncing-around – including those forced to watch from the bogs at the back – and the curious parents who’ve swung by are just as involved as their thoroughly embarrassed kids.

Her stage presence is more animated than usual and gees up the crowd for big drops – despite the sound issues that she says explains her “angry face” throughout. She need not worry, it sounds superb from where we are. Particularly, ‘You Should See Me In A Crown’ a destructive and affirmation of her current reign over pop music right now. ‘Copycat’ throws down the gauntlet to all the pretenders and phonies: “Copycat trying to cop my manner/Watch your back when you can’t watch mine”.

She lays flat on the stage for the twinkling ‘When I’m Older’ and for ‘Ocean Eyes’, she wants people to live in the moment: “Hold your phones down and look at me in the eye. We’ll never be in this moment ever again.”. Her ballads are just as impressive, too. ‘Wish You Were Gay’ is simply majestic and the swooning ‘Xanny’ is as addictive as they come.

In a matter of months, she’s transitioned from Instagram icon to pop sensation – and this almost certainly won’t be her last time at the festival. From what we’ve just witnessed, there’s every chance that she lands the top spot on the Pyramid eventually. “It’s like the whole world is looking at me right now,” she says mid-set, both excited and wistful. It’s hard to imagine anyone turning away from this spectacle now.

  2. Anti ‘ Ya called it buddy .

    By Derrick on Aug 28, 2019

  3. From a great 70s band like Little Feat to this bullshit .

    By Derrick on Aug 28, 2019

  4. I have to less crudely agree with Derrick . Another example of why mainstream music has been completely in the toilet for almost twenty years . This , Miley Cyrus , Baby Metal and other pretend bands and musicians miming their faces off to computerized bubble noise .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  5. Think Ashley Simpson , Britney Spears , Katy Perry , Taylor Swift. All no talent media creations more famous for their legs than their voices

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  6. Even Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton put out albums once . That’s what the media force feeds us . Why wasn’t Neko Case at Glastonbury? Oh that’s right they don’t want people with talent .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  7. Rumor has it Billie prefers Big Uns

    By U L E on Aug 28, 2019

  8. Brilliant! Thanks Big O

    so funny!

    and great too!

    By swappers on Aug 28, 2019

  9. Don’t forget William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy also released albums (were the records released or did they escape?)

    By Mark on Aug 28, 2019

  10. ‘It debuted at No. 1 on the USA Billboard 200. It also topped the charts in 15 other countries. Just before the release, by March 21, 2019, the album had been pre-added 800,000 times on Apple Music, the most of any artist to date.”

    Trolls? You know the expression old and in the way?
    That . . . . . .
    ;)

    By swappers on Aug 28, 2019

  11. @swappers:
    Trolls? You know the expression old and in the way?
    That . . . . . .

    Yep. They sound like voices from the big band age decrying the declining popularity of Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw when a youngster from Memphis named Elvis was driving the kids wild with his awful, newfangled “rock and roll”.

    It’s called evolution: demographics, tastes, technology and cultures change. Doesn’t mean you have to like it. Just means if you’re stuck in the past nobody cares. Go put on a record and pretend it’s 1974 again if that makes you happy.

    By kingpossum on Aug 28, 2019

  12. Swappers , I’ve learned that this day and age if it sells and the media promotes it it’s garbage. Think Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana. . What’s great rarely charts . Think Neko Case and Jason Molina aka Magnolia Electric CO

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  13. I’m sure like Miley the media adoration will grow as her skirts keep getting shorter .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  14. kingpossum , it’s technology instead of talent . That’s what I’ve been saying for years. Before technology you had to have talent. And yes 74 was a great year . About to put the needle to vinyl and listen to Court and Spark by Joni Mitchell a true musical genius and talent at a time when that seemed to matter .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  15. I thought baby boomers were who frequented this blog . How can anybody born bef2000 like this crap

    By Nelson on Aug 28, 2019

  16. And yeah some Molina would be great . Can’t believe people prefer this twit to Molina .

    By Nelson on Aug 28, 2019

  17. Nelson , apparently no one here has even heard of Jason Molina. I’ve referenced him several times and no one says a word . Mention Miley and this young teen and the blogs explode

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  18. Antichrist ‘ several young women appeared in court testifying that they were assulted by that Jew scumbag Jeffery Epstein today. Some girls were 12 to 14 at the time . I think he was wacked in jail . He knew too much about too many powerful people.

    By HHH on Aug 28, 2019

  19. Hell I even heard Alan Dershowitz that scumbag jew lawyer was part of the ring

    By HHH on Aug 28, 2019

  20. The Jews and the blacks are destroying this once great country. The Jews might be worse because they are smarter . Blacks need Whitey to hold their hands

    By HHH on Aug 28, 2019

  21. Billie Ellish also broke Lil Nas X’s 19 weeks at #1 with Old Town Road, a song I guarantee you no one will be playing 20 years from now. But thanks as always BigO for providing this variety. Man does not live by classic rock alone.

    By Tony Pizza on Aug 28, 2019

  22. Im so glad he hung himself or got whacked. My concern HHH is how many Jeff Epsteins’ are out there doing the same thing

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 28, 2019

  23. I told you Derrick. I can tell Big O was gonna do that.They think its comparable to our 1969 Woodstock. Miley Cyrus couldnt even clean Richie Havens jock with that tongue of hers

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 28, 2019

  24. Any Jew Lawyer you can think of is involved in something shady and insidious. The Jew cant help it. Its in their nature. No good scumbags

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 28, 2019

  25. Wow Lil Nas x . A rapper I assume ? That’s what the music world is today that and this new teen queen . And your right man does not live on Classic Rock alone . There is Sinatra ‘ Billie Holliday, Peggy Lee ‘ Caruso , Helen Mirrenb’ June Christy ‘ Dean Martin. No classic rock there but great music none the less

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  26. The billboard top 100 is full of rappers and teen queens

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  27. Back in the s day what sold usually told you the music was great . These days if you want to find good music you should look at what dosent sell .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  28. Shut the fuck up, Bill.

    For God’s sake, shut the fuck up!

    And if you can’t shut the fuck up, at least put your three consecutive fucking comments into one!

    What the fuck is up with that anyway?? Do you get your rocks off seeing your name in the “Recent Comments” box?? Asshole.

    By everyone else on BigO on Aug 28, 2019

  29. I really don’t get the “debate.” Unlike when I was young when we more or less had to listen to what was on the radio, today there is an endless supply of music available for every taste. Pick what you like and ignore the rest. Experiment and try new genres and artists or just listen to the same oldies over and over again, up to each of us. There are a ton of exciting artists performing today, but the ones I like and listen to don’t make it to the top 40 very often (I think they don’t as I don’t actually pay any attention to the music charts, never did, if I like it I like it, don’t really care if it is popular with the masses or not). Of course mostly these comments are just silly trolls looking for attention. I will probably give this show a pass, but I often listen to music found here that I won’t normally just to check it out and expand my horizons. Sometimes I get a pleasant surprise.

    By Jack on Aug 28, 2019

  30. Bill is Derrick. Also U L E.

    Also Eli, Freddie Fender, CJ, Groupie Chick Traci, Terrence, and Smashmouth.

    Don’t believe me? BigO called him out here:
    http://bigozine2.com/roio/?p=4007#comment-2899390

    By everyone else on BigO on Aug 28, 2019

  31. Bill makes a lot of good points.”everyone”- anyone can type bigozine2 and leave a comment, so it’s just as likely that the comment you refer to is fake.

    By Mark on Aug 28, 2019

  32. Every generation has its “bubblegum” pop singers. The 70’s treated us to The Partridge Family, Bobby Sherman, and the Bay City Rollers. There’s room in the music universe for a wide variety of tastes, just as there is here on bigozine2.com. Today’s generation has their own set of pop singers.

    By Mark on Aug 28, 2019

  33. Gosh , why do people get so defensive here ? Could it be the baby boomers like myself instead of continuing to protest this garbage have taken the if you can’t beat en join em stance .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  34. Never really cared for Bay City Rollers , but I do have fond memories of Bobby Sherman , The Cowsills , Partridge Family The Archie’s ( Sugar Sugar ) The Monkees , Tommy Roe , Lulu , Petula Clark , Jackie DeShannon , Dusty Springfield etc .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  35. Before that you had Fabian , Billy Joe Royal , Bobby Vee , Bobby Vinton , Ricky Nelson .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  36. Also the 1910 fruitgum CO

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  37. Those artists and bands were on the billboard charts regularly, Obviously way better and more talented than popular artists and bands today . Also no rappers, African American artists gave us Motown instead which was great . Radio would play a song by the Archie’s followed by the stones , then the Beatles , then The Beach Boys , then the cowsills Followed by Hendrix , then the doors , Cream , followed by Lulu , and Spanky and our Gang , . A great mixture of good to very good to great . Even the so called lightweight artists and groups back then had some talent and they blended in on the radio with the legends . They could actually sing and didn’t need to resort to tintillation to get attention. Think Mama Cass .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  38. When FM became big around 70 71 72 . I vividly remember the stations would mix everything. Something for everyone. They would Play Zep , Sabbath,,The Who , Stones , Allmans , , Purple , Steppenwolf , three dog night etc and mix em in with the carpenters, Bread , Donny Osmond , Don McClean , Gilbert O Sullivan, Lobo , Michael Jackson, Helen Reddy . You also had Midnight Special, Don Kirshner and many live concert radio broadcasts. Today radio is basically dead as are the record companies. Miley lives in a mansion while Jason Molina and other indie artists have to try and sell CDs at their small venue shows .

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  39. Tom Petty said it often . Mainstream popular music today sucks and if he , and Springsteen had started today they would have been annoymous

    By Bill on Aug 28, 2019

  40. Hey I agree Bill ‘. But I’ll take it farther . Every motherfuckin singer and band today sucks . There ain’t no fuckin Led Zeps our there . That’s for damn sure .Petty was great . Don’t care for Springsteen. He’s a fuckin liberal asshole who supported Obama that hi yeller . I loved the fuckin Little Feat show but then this shit follows . Don’t fuckin get it.man . Hey why not post some Steppenwolf . Fuckin great band . Peter Fonda Capt America just died . Some fuckin Steppenwolf would be a nice way to honor him .

    By Derrick on Aug 28, 2019

  41. Gotta watch fuckin Easy Rider again . Shit that takes me back to a better time .

    By Derrick on Aug 28, 2019

  42. Don’t Bogart that joint Derrick.

    By T J on Aug 28, 2019

  43. I saw the Doors at the Roundhouse and life was never quite the same again. Seen Led Zeppelin live and went to the first Glastonbury and the first Reading Festival (Sha Na Na, Osibisa et al) Saw Humple Pie live, Ian Dury and The Blockheads, T. Rex, Eric Clapton, XTC, Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band (twice)
    . . . . . and I like Lady Ga Ga, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Iron and Wine, Wilco, Lewis Capaldi, Lily Allen, Neneh Cherry, Sigrid, The Streets, Freya Ridings, Keb Mo, The Killers and Billy Bragg to name but a few who were at this years Glasto . . . . .

    don’t criticize
    What you can’t understand
    Your sons and your daughters
    Are beyond your command
    Your old road is rapidly agin’
    Please get out of the new one
    If you can’t lend your hand
    For the times they are a-changin’ . . . . . . .

    By swappers on Aug 28, 2019

  44. To everyone complaining… adults in music have left the building… 20 years ago. How is this news to you? 60s 70s even 80s had a desire-to-learn and create culture; and they had a ’stuffy/the man’ culture to rebel against. Every scenario has now been played out, every angle exploited. Cherish the time you actually had, rather than pointless moaning about wtf young people are up to… the future will be ambient sine waves.

    By adults on Aug 28, 2019

  45. To all moaning about this - you’re no different to the old goats who grumbled about Elvis and ‘beat’ music. This is music for and by the young. Now sod off and play your Foghat albums, Grandad.

    By Pinpoint on Aug 28, 2019

  46. Jack is right. Pinpoint is right. We need more Jack and Pinpoint type comments on here.

    By BigE on Aug 28, 2019

  47. Swappers , I noticed you left out that musical icon and genius Miley Cyrus also those legends baby metal. Are they on your must listen to iist as well ?

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  48. I do think Sharon Van Etten is talented , but that’s about it from Glastonbury.

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  49. Bill forget it man . These motherfuckers has surrendered. Ain’t no way they believe this bullshit today is music. Not if they is our age .

    By Derrick on Aug 29, 2019

  50. No Bill list was of people who’s music I like. Cyrus and Baby Metal I don’t care for . . . . . .

    By swappers on Aug 29, 2019

  51. Fuck they all suck . All of them . Loved the Little Feat show Lowell George. Now that’s a fuckin great singer and musician. Not this modern bullshit .

    By Derrick on Aug 29, 2019

  52. Anti , can you believe some of the folks here ? They actually think this shit is good .

    By Derrick on Aug 29, 2019

  53. OK , I listened to bits of various songs here . Just like I thought another teen tart . No decent band . Sounds like piped in noise . Typical millennial fare . In other words god awful .

    By David on Aug 29, 2019

  54. Sounds like young Britney twenty years ago . That was awful too . Where did good music go ? This is what tops the charts ? Who the hell is listening?

    By David on Aug 29, 2019

  55. I’m not generally a 70s snob , but this ? I did like Smashing Pumpkins ‘ Killers and Van Etten ‘ This ‘ baby metal and Hannah Montana can take a short dive into a deep lake .

    By David on Aug 29, 2019

  56. Derrick, nothing surprises me anymore. Its like eating great pizza in New York City and you ask a teenager whats the best pizza you ever had. Instead of saying Rays’ Pizza or one of the classics. They will say, oh the best pizza I ever had was Dominos, or Pizza Hut or Papa Johns’ Same idea. They dont know any better

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 29, 2019

  57. It’s so funny listening to all these grandfathers reminisce about how great things were when they were young, and how kids today don’t know shit. Things were never as great as you recall and they are not as bad as you think they are today.

    By Mark on Aug 29, 2019

  58. Mark , with all due respect. Billie Eilish , Miley and baby metal are very bad . I’m sorry if you think otherwise.

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  59. The other performers at Glastonbury are mediocre at best although not as bad as the three I mentioned. The one exception is Sharon Van Etten who has talent but still isn’t in the same league as Joni Mitchell, Carole King or Linda Ronstadt .

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  60. Hey Anti with all the talk bout festivals. Remember the Isle of Wight 70 festival. Hendrix , The Who ‘ The Doors ‘ Moody Blues ‘ Joni Mitchell ‘ Leonard Cohen. Wasn’t Woodstock but it was still pretty fucking good . No bands like that today .

    By Derrick on Aug 29, 2019

  61. Bill- I don’t particularly like the three you mentioned, so I agree with your opinion of them. But there’s room for gourmet music and there’s room for junk food in the music universe. But, I don’t think young people are worse than us because they have different tastes.

    By Mark on Aug 29, 2019

  62. They have different tastes because they haven’t tasted anything else , thanks to the mainstream media .

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  63. When Miley , Beiber , Baby Metal ‘ Billie Elish , Taylor Swift, Katie Perry , Arrianna Grande are practically all you see and hear on all the awards shows and other shows , magazines etc . That’s who you gravitate to.

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  64. Plus those horrible hip hop artists

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  65. If the media would promote Neko Case for example, and had they promoted Jason Molina before he passed away perhaps they would be mainstream and and not only have cult followings. What if radio had refused to play the Beatles, stones , Dave Clark five , Monkees , Hendrix, Zeppelin, The Who , Tom Petty , Dylan , Springsteen? And only played bubble gum and Motown. The media can make or break you .

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  66. Where are the modern day guitar icons ? The Pages and Clapton’s Hendrix etc who inspire young people to debates and to pick up guitars themselves?

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  67. If they exist they are probably playing small dives for hamburgers and bus money, laboring in obscurity.

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  68. Bill- Here’s a high quality band you don’t hear much about: The Waterboys are incredibly awesome. Another below the radar artist is Richard Thompson. I’m going to give a listen to the artist you mentioned.

    By Mark on Aug 29, 2019

  69. Of course I’ve heard of Richard Thompson, He’s a legend and no millennial.

    By Bill on Aug 29, 2019

  70. Billie sounds like Britney Spears .

    By Nelson on Aug 29, 2019

  71. That’s no compliment.

    By Nelson on Aug 29, 2019

  72. I don’t get the big deal here . She can’t sing and isn’t that pretty. Dosent have Miley’s legs or body . So I can’t imagine guys jacking off

    By Tom on Aug 29, 2019

  73. Have you heard Miley Cyrus talk ? Sounds like a dude . That’s enough to make my boner deflate .

    By Nelson on Aug 29, 2019

  74. Richard and Linda Thompson put out several critically acclaimed albums in the seventies. They weren’t commercial and didn’t sell that well but were well respected.

    By Bill on Aug 30, 2019

  75. Richard was one of the founding members of Fairport Convention

    By Bill on Aug 30, 2019

  76. Was he Jewish ?

    By Der Furher on Aug 30, 2019

  77. Bill- I’m glad you know of Richard Thompson. Most people ask me, “Didn’t he play John Boy on The Waltons?”

    By Mark on Aug 30, 2019

  78. Hey Mark, if Richard Thompson is below your radar, there’s something wrong with your radar.

    As for The Waterboys, they managed one good track. So dis The Osmonds, y’know.

    By BBC on Aug 30, 2019

  79. John Boy Walton was played by Richard Thomas , not Thompson.

    By Bill on Aug 30, 2019

  80. Sandy Denny was also in Fairport Convention. Trivia . She sang background vocals on Battle of Evermore from Led Zeppelin IV

    By Bill on Aug 30, 2019

  81. Derrick, dont forget the Monterey Pop Festival with The Who and Jimi Hendrix

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 30, 2019

  82. Yeah anti ‘ Monterey was great . Hendrix, The Who ,Airplane ‘ Byrd’s ‘ Mamas and papas. Lots of others too . Did you like Simon and Garfunkel Anti ? Think they was Jews .

    By Derrick on Aug 30, 2019

  83. Also just read that Gram Parsons might have been a Jew also Leonard Cohen . Say it ain’t so .

    By Derrick on Aug 30, 2019

  84. Both Cohen and Gram had big noses . That adds up to Jew .

    By T J on Aug 30, 2019

  85. Don’t care for this type of music. Count me as another classic rock guy , Hate bashing a young 17 year old though. Not her fault when she was born .

    By Tom on Sep 2, 2019

  86. I will say I haven’t seen any mini skirts up to the butt cheeks yet ‘ although it’s probably coming unfortunately. She seems to dress modestly, at least so far unlike the Swift’s , Miley’s etc

    By Tom on Sep 2, 2019

  87. I love to look up Miley and Swifts mini skirts and jack off on my face

    By Mark on Sep 2, 2019

  88. This guy Mark sounds like a real fucking perv. Damn shithead
