Wombles Rock Glastonbury
The Wombles, joined by Chris Spedding, rocked Glastonbury. Opening their set with 'Remember You're A Womble', the band drew a big audience, many wearing cardboard Womble masks. The set included 'Nashville Wombles', 'Wombling Merry Christmas' and the finale of 'The Wombling Song'.
"You will clean up all your litter afterwards, won't you?" said the ever socially conscious Orinoco near the end of their set.
"They must have been like junkies in a crack den with all that litter" said Liam O'Meara, a Wombles fan from Islington who used to play 'Wombling Free' on his organ when he was a youngster.
The Wombles courted controversy earlier following comments by festival organiser Michael Eavis, who said he regretted that the band had been booked for the event. Spoil sport.
