Echo & The Bunnymen, Ian Dury et al: Glastonbury CND Festival, Pilton, Somerset

Jack Barron, Sounds, 29 June 1985

"JESUS WEPT," from St Mark's Gospel is, I'm assured, the shortest verse in The Bible. That his Divinity did so over this event when 40,000 people decamped to a Somerset farm for the dirtiest weekend of their lives is not in doubt. Mudstock, be thy name Glastonbury in 1985.
