 おそらく、グラストンバリーで最もフジ・ロックと分厚い接点を持つのがロスト・ヴェイグネスというエリアに生まれたジョー・ストラマー関連のエリア。彼の死語、未来ある若いミュージシャン達を育てよう、助けようと、彼の家族や仲間達が設立した基金、ストラマーヴィルが運営にああっているのがここだ。昨年までは格安のバーに焚き火があって、さまざまなDJがお皿を回すという作りだったんだが、今年はここのステージが登場していた。有名無名を問わず、ここに登録すれば演奏できるということで、噂で耳にしたのは昨年のフジ・ロックで演奏したクンビアのバンド、ヴェリー・ビー・ケアフルがここで大騒ぎの演奏をしたこと。それに、ダーティ・プリティ・シングズが登場したり、ケミカル・ブラザーズがやってきてDJをしたなんて話も耳にした。例年通り、ドン・レッツも来ていたらしいんだが、残念ながら、今回は顔を合わせることができなかった。

 たまたまこの日ここを通りがかったときにステージに姿を見せていたのが、ケース・アレン。イギリスでは有名な役者で、ジョーと一緒に幾度かフジ・ロックにも来ていた人物だ。「生バンド付きのパンク・カラオケ」といった風情で歌っていたんだが、傑作だったのは名曲「マイ・ウェイ」の日本語ヴァージョン。といっても、もちろん、「日本語っぽく」聞こえるだけの言葉で、タモリの四カ国語麻雀を想起させるもの。当然のように、会場は爆笑の渦で、泥沼の中で腹を抱えて笑い転げる人たちもいた。

 そこで偶然顔を合わせたのが、やはり数年前のフジ・ロックで大受けしたキッド・カーペット。なんでも新しいアルバムの制作中で、その中の1曲を彼のMySpaceでチェックできるようになっているので、関心のある方は聞いてみたくださいな。

 なお、前日のここに顔を見せいたのが、このキースの娘、リリー・アレン。ピラミッド・ステージでスペシャルズのメンバーと共演したらしいんだが、その直後にここにやってきたんだそうな。と、くせ者のミュージシャン達の交流の場のようにもなっているのがここ。それはフジ・ロックのパレス・オヴ・ワンダーが生まれた頃と実にそっくりなのだ。
