Tim Booth appears in a souwester and announces that since – in a world a million miles away with flushing toilets, running water and warm weather – England have won a football match, James will play a greatest hits set. Result, strange tantric hippy bloke! Result, English footballers! Goodnight, sadomasochistic noodles and ruminations on “fame”! This decision does however represent a significant advance. Finally it appears that after decades of blowing it at every conceivable opportunity, James have risen to the occasion.
A late stand-in for Morrissey, they started the set with a cover of We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful, a song he wrote about James.
