Mgmt To Play 'Kids' Again For Their 'Bro' Fans

Mgmt To Play 'Kids' Again For Their 'Bro' Fans
At long last, Mgmt are ready to delight their famously irritable fan base by bringing electro-pop masterpiece "Kids" back into their set list on a nightly basis.

Though it's their biggest song, the band has incited controversy by withholding "Kids" since as far back as Coachella 2010 drawing the ire of many fans in the process.

But in an interview with HuffPost Canada Music, the band's keyboardist and co-songwriter Ben Goldwasser has vowed that the song will return to the band's setlist on their upcoming tour.

"I think we're game to try it again," he says. "We've worked on a lot of different ways of playing it."

That said, they're no less bothered by fans who want to hear it. "We get kind of annoyed by people who say that we played a terrible show because we didn't play their favourite song," says Goldwasser. "There are a lot of people who

Made In England

7.30pm, Channel 4

The stats are stark: in 1979, 70,000 people were employed in clothing manufacturing in the Manchester area; now there are less than a thousand. This film, directed by Satnam Authi, looks at one of the few success stories, a garment factory called Cooper & Stollbrand that has benefited from the resurgence in demand for UK-produced goods. It's a straight portrait of the company during a busy period, replete with characters who could have been working for Mike Baldwin. Not much happens – but maybe it's enough just to see a UK factory that is successful in action.

Humpbacks From Fire And Ice

11am, Eden

The bull whale is no gentle giant, as we discover in this stunningly photographed documentary, travelling from Hawaii (Fire) to Alaska (Ice). Sir David Attenborough narrates in his lovely, mellowed tones, on images that aren't quite so mellow, such as clashing bulls causing the kind of watery crescendos an industrial tractor might make if chucked into a swimming pool. But it's not all macho posturing: the plaintive cries of a young whale abandoned by her mum to fend for herself will break your heart.

BBC Proms 2010

7.30pm, BBC4

The recent recordings of Beethoven's piano concertos by Liverpudlian pianist Paul Lewis have been deservedly garlanded – all were named Editor's Choice by Gramophone magazine – so this may well be a highlight of this year's Proms. Lewis will play Beethoven's First and Fourth piano concertos,

Richard Chamberlain Marathon

2pm, CBS Drama

In the 1980s, it was practically TV law that you had to have Richard Chamberlain looking pensive and tangled up in a complicated historical romance if you wanted to make a mini-series. Here, CBS Drama are dedicating a weekend to his work. It's The Thorn Birds today, all forbidden love in the Australian outback; then James Clavell's epic Shogun tomorrow, where he's a 17th-century adventurer in Japan opposite Toshirô Mifune (above) – star of many of Akira Kurosawa's classics.

Doctor Who

Glastonbury 2010: Grace Dent's liveblog from the sofa

Grace Dent watches the first evening of music from Glastonbury 2010 from the comfort of her sitting room, thereby avoiding early-morning smoothie stall DJ sets. Join her at 7pm

1.03am: I have a feeling this is not the textbook state of mind to be in charge of the Guardian live blogging system. *eyes struggling to focus on the screen, slurping booze* And as this is the third time I've seen Hot Chip it may be time for bed. Ah 'bed'. A Real bed. One I can get to without a 57 minute round trip via the Bingly-Bongly tent on a wild goose chase to see Joy Orbison DJ, a near broken ankle on a guy rope and the gentle wake up call of someone urinating on the side of my tent. Then a shower in the morning, with soap, leaving me unclaggy of armpit and pant district. Staying at home is amazing.

Glastonbury 2010

From 7pm, BBC3

Once again, the biggest live music event in the British calendar comes to the Beeb, with a hefty whack of coverage to guide the ticketless through the festival; though, depending on the weather gods, viewing might just lead to some sofa smugness.

For the full sensory overload, follow coverage online, on the radio and on HD, too; and there are live reviews and news at guardian.co.uk/music/glastonbury and twitter.com/guardianmusic. Rn
