Glastonbury Calling 2017 - Don't Do Tuesday's

Live review of the set at The King Arthur for Glastonbury Calling 2017

Live Review – Don’t Do Tuesday’s at Glastonbury Calling 2017

For most of the 21st century Glastonbury and Street has grown up with Don’t Do Tuesdays. The skate punks who never really grew up. You know what you are going to get and when Don’t do Tuesdays hit the stage at the King Arthur, it was clear they were going to oblige.

They’re rude, scatological and irrepressibly fun. They’ll bang a ska cover in for apparently no good reason at all, drag in a trumpet player and an extra guitarist from the floor, and envelope themselves with smoke. If Viz magazine had formed a band DDT is what they would sound like. They’re knocking them out with the enthusiasm of a teenager who’s found their way round the parental content controls on their wi-fi. Even guitarist Stefano’s dad is dragged into the action with a call for “the song with the f*****g in it”. From the moment they appear on stage , all last gang in town ragged glory, to the end chaotic notes there’s a grin on your face. Rock and Roll can be many things, but most of all it’s best when it’s fun.

They’re probably not a band you could take your mum to see. Not least because of what she might get up to after the gig if she takes the filthy minded DDT to her bosom
