Reading and Leeds line-up identical to Dad’s Driving Playlist line-up

THE acts performing at this year’s Reading Festival are the same acts in the same order that appear on Dad’s Driving Playlist, he has confirmed. 

The playlist, which is cued up for any journey longer than an hour, opens with Kasabian, followed by Eminem, followed by Muse, exactly as the rock festival does.

Father Nathan Muir said: “See? I’m not out of touch.

“I mainly like guitars, but Kasabian aren’t afraid to get a bit experimental with it. Quite often they’ll use a synthesiser.

“Who else is on the bill? Liam Gallagher, yes, Fatboy Slim, that’s track five, Haim, lovely harmonies, remind me a bit of Fleetwood Mac.

“Yes, I might come with you to this. Would I have to get out of the car?”

Temperature perfect for one minute at 9.19am

BRITAIN enjoyed a full minute of optimum sunshine this morning before everyone started moaning about the heat.

The moment happened when everyone was either commuting or already in work, giving nobody opportunity to actually savour it before being stuck inside for a long, sweaty day.

Marketing executive Tom Logan said: “Sunshine’s great in theory. But when it’s nippy getting into work then a slow-roasted hell by lunchtime, I have to question the point.

“It’s basically treason if you’re British and don’t spend every single available second outside when the temperature exceeds 20 degrees, but I’m sweating cobs and my sandwich tastes of suncream.

“It’ll be baking when I finish work. It’ll be stifling when I go to bed tonight. And tomorrow’s Saturday, so it’ll be raining.”

The only people able to enjoy the balmy minute were old men on their way to buy a newspaper and schoolchildren playing truant.

72-year-old Norman Steele said: “Ah, wonderful to be out here with the rays playing gently on the sun-dappled pavements.

“Oh, minute’s over. Now it’s too hot.”
