There's something inherently cool about vinyl. Beyond the evident heightened sound quality there's something more to this archaic format, something more than the look, the touch, the smell; there's rumination; there's the childlike excitement of the whole thing. It’s how Rough Trade stays in business, how Moshi Moshi stay so cool, and it’s the thing that has inspired writers, musicians and filmmakers the world over. It’s Anita handing William a copy of Simon and Garfunkel and it’s The Count grappling with death. It’s the reason budding music tycoons get into the business... to release the pinnacle of indie cool, the 7” single. It has, for years, been the platform to launch any new band worth their salt in the realm of guitars, and the point in which they can declare their existence in the music archives.

Forty years ago, dairy farmer Michael Eavis put on his first music festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton. Just over a thousand hippies parted with £1 to see T-Rex perform and enjoy a pint or two of free milk from the farm’s Friesians.

"Michael Stipe once said you shouldn't wear sunglasses on stage because it demonstrates disrespect for your audience," said Matt Berninger, lead singer of Brooklyn-based rockers The National. "But the sun is shining into my eyes and is burning my corneas." If anything defined this year's Glastonbury, it was the heat. Dry, uncompromising, and painfully affecting. The same, of course, could be said for Berninger's music.

"Please bring sun protection with you!" announced the Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis yesterday. It will be music to the ears of the 180,000 who will descend on Worthy Farm over the next few days.
