Episode Summary

Badly Drawn Boy
And so to the final chapter of our green man sessions, and who better to round it all off than Damon Gough, otherwise known as Badly Drawn Boy. He'd been getting stuck into the festival good and proper and when we met him he wearily clambered into the taxi in yesterday's clothes having just warmed up his vocal chords with a damp rollie. And then out came this rendition of Born in the UK - beautiful and wistful, the perfect soundtrack to the green hills and hedgerows we slowly wound our way through. And it was the perfect way to close out the festival, as we indulged in some nostalgic memories of what we'd enjoyed about Green Man - perhaps a little bit like when helen daniels died in 'neighbours' and a montage took us back over the events of her life. We'll remember the food - amazing, and always served with rocket; The National's set on the last night; the epic scenery; Laura Marling; Mumford and Sons; and of course the rain, the relentless rain that came down in biblical proportions but didn't dampen anyone's spirits. We reckon we were all in the billy connelly camp for this one: "there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes." We'll be back in the Brecon Beacons next year for suremoreless
