Not at Glastonbury this year, but I've been listening in mostly via 6Music. However, I've just watched the iPlayer's live feed of the Pyramid Stage and enjoyed bluesman Seasick Steve over my Sunday lunch at the studio. In the quite likely event you don't know of Steve, here's a recent single.

I have slightly mixed feelings about the series' comic overtones, because it rather tends to mask the nastiness by making all the Very Bad People out as merely eccentric scamps and rascals. It's arguably a little predictable, and the characters are perhaps a bit too cliched, but it doesn't have pretensions above being what it is: and that's well a tailored bit of skulduggery.
