原文: Hip-hop ‘wrong’ for Glastonbury

Noel Gallagher has criticised the decision to have a hip-hop act headlining the Glastonbury Festival. The Oasis guitarist said having rapper Jay-Z at the festival was the reason tickets had not sold out this year. He said it was “wrong" to have a hip-hop headliner and added that organisers had changed things too much. But Hattie Collins, editor of urban music magazine RWD, called Gallagher’s comments “ill-informed rubbish" and said Jay-Z was a “great crowd puller". There were 100,000 tickets sold for Glastonbury on the first day, but in past years all tickets had sold out in a matter of hours.
頭子最近批評hip-hop在Glastonbury中擔綱壓軸的事。綠洲的吉他手也說今年的票到現在還沒賣完,都是因為饒舌歌手Jay-Z的關係。頭子又說,讓嘻哈壓軸根本就錯了,而且改變太大了。但是音樂雜誌的編輯,Hattie Collins,卻覺得頭子的意見是個屁! 而稱讚Jay-Z是超棒的人氣王。今年Glastonbury演唱會的門票在第一天總共賣出了十萬張,但是在歷年中,所有的票幾乎都在幾小時內銷售一空。

Gallagher said: “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
“If you start to break it then people aren’t going to go. I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance.
“Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go ‘Kylie Minogue?’
“I don’t know about it. But I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It’s wrong."
頭子說:「如果東西沒有壞,就不必刻意修理它。」
「如果你開始破壞這個傳統,那人們都不會前往了。我很抱歉要這樣說,但是Jay-Z? 別鬧了!」
「Glastonbury一向有著吉他音樂的傳統,結果他們居然在星期天晚上拋出一個詭異的曲球,你要去看凱莉米洛?!」
「我搞不懂這個。但我不想要在Glastonbury看到hip-hop。」

Oasis headlined the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury in 1995 and 2004, with the event selling out on both occasions.
綠洲在1995與2004年擔任Glastonbury的壓軸團,而這兩年的票都銷售一空。

Kanya King, who established the Mobo Awards, said Gallagher was wrong to criticise the festival’s choice of headliner. “Given that Glastonbury is trying to reach a younger audience and diversify then I think it’s important that they embrace hip-hop," she said. “It seems only fitting that you should have a global superstar act like Jay-Z on the show. “Glastonbury doesn’t have that many hip-hop acts on the main stage, so maybe music lovers will get to see him and their opinions will change."
Mobo Awards的創辦人Kanya King對於頭子批評演唱會選擇的壓軸主角感到不以為然。Glastonbury試圖接近年輕的觀眾並且讓表演更多樣化,我覺得這是很重要的。找來全球超級巨星在台上表演,像是Jay-Z,這是再適合不過了。Glastonbury從沒有很多的嘻哈歌手擔任壓軸,所以音樂愛好者或許會因此而去看,未來不同的意見也許也會改變。

Ms Collins said she believed the Oasis songwriter had “probably never seen Jay-Z live or heard any of his tunes". “Hip-hop in a live setting can be fantastic and has just as much right to be there as any other run-of-the-mill indie band," she added.
Collins女士又補一槍說,她相信頭子可能從沒看過Jay-Z的現場演出或者從沒聽過他任何一首歌曲。嘻哈在現場的設置也能讓人感到神奇,絕不下於其他一般平庸的樂團。(馬的,這句有酸)

Glastonbury organisers took out an advert in Monday’s Guardian newspaper to encourage ticket sales. The ad invites people to “take a five-day break at Worthy Farm and enjoy the most extraordinary festival anywhere in the world". The full line-up will be announced on 1 May.
Glastonbury的主辦單位在衛報上刊登了廣告來刺激門票的銷售。最終的完整表演名單將會在五月一日公布。
  
  
補充一個關於綠洲新專輯的消息
  
He did confirm that Oasis’ seventh studio album had been completed. “That’s finished. All done. We’re just kind of waiting to get a record deal and get it out. “We’ve not managed to get a title yet. We’re in the middle of doing the artwork. Down to a shortlist of about three."
頭子向大家確定說,綠洲第七張專輯已經全部完成了。已經結束了。全部搞定。我們只在等待拿到專輯的合約然後發行。不過我們還沒決定好專輯的名稱。現在正在進行的事專輯封面的美工。名單目前大約剩下三個。

    現在台灣西洋樂壇幾乎都是嘻哈在稱王
    看了真的有點討厭!
    不希望連那有三四十年歷史的音樂節
    都還要讓嘻哈來攪局…

  1. “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
    這句…好棒!!頭子太酷了!!

    謝謝你翻了這則新聞
    但…勝地被玷汙的感覺不太好=..=
    嗚~希望不是真的

  2. 怎麼看完會有點失落呢……

    XDDDDDD

    我覺得hip-hop不是不好,但是有些地方還是要保有傳統,才更顯得有特色!

    我當然知道嘻哈沒有不好
    他有些歌還蠻容易朗朗上口的
    就像你說的!我只是希望他保有傳統
    如果Glastonbury有jay-z會減少我想去的意願
    而且如果jay-z真的去了Glastonbury
    有可能以後會更多嘻哈藝人登台
    整個就錯了…
    Glastonbury將不會再是Glastonbury

    對於歷史變遷,我們無法改變的太多了。
    so…靜觀其變吧…
