Hadouken! To Cover The Prodigy At Glastonbury

June 27, 2008
Hadouken! To Cover The Prodigy At GlastonburyHadouken! spoke to Gigwise today ahead of their performance on The John Peel Stage to explain their thoughts on Glastonbury.

Frontman James Smith was looking eager to get out and perform as he sat down backstage to discuss his bands upcoming performance.

“It’s looking pretty muddy already – but that’s part of the fun. We’re looking forward to smashing it.”

He revealed Hadouken! would be playing a cover of The Prodigy’s ‘Breathe’ and expressed his concern over the line-up.

“I was looking at the bill and I didn’t think there was many bands that we shared a lot in common with so hopefully we’ll have a little niche in the crowd.”

Speaking of the band’s fantastic past year James said: “It’s been pretty mental and snowballing – you’ve got to accept that it’s not going to last forever.”

With Jay-Z making all the headlines over his much debated headline appearance on Saturday Gigwise asked James’ opinion on the matter.

He said: “I think it’s a shame that it’s been like that. I think it could have been a really exciting proposition that you’re going to have a Hip-Hop act, but it seems to have been turned sour.

James finally added some touching sentiments over the Glastonbury experience: “It’s obviously the biggest festival and one of the first as well – it’s definitely got a history and it’s a good one to play and say we’ve done.”
