That is all...
Henry Rollins or Jeffrey Lewis on their lists
stage are they appearing on, cant seem to find them on line-up
i think it's what used to be the comedy tent
Only seven bands I would have any interest at all to see. Reading lineup is pretty dire this year, although the headliners are better than usual even though I hate Metallica.
it helps that there is little i want to see though, so i guess we differ. i just hate rushing around feeling like you have to see certain things to make it a worthwhile festival. plus, with all the crowds, moving around is a bit annoying
So I would strongly advise you to ditch the following:
FRIDAY - The Enemy (WTF man?!), The Wombats, MGMT
SATURDAY: Bombay Bicycle Club, The Automatic, Santogold, Editors
SUNDAY - Hadouken, The Music
Some are parts of sets-this is my fifth year at Reading so i'm pretty used to catchng bits of bands.
and there isn't much clashing with them either
Hadouken! if I were you - very good live, despite the naysayers...
so except for seeing slipknot and 'tallica i'll probably be spending most of my time around there.
is well shocking this year. BSP, Justice and Fucked Up are literally the only bands I want to see all day. There's a lot of good stuff in the Republic tent lineup though, and I hope and pray that it plugs the festering anal abscess that is the Saturday roster.
Bloc Party, Racontuers, Justice (who annoyingly clash with the two previous ones), BSP, Seasick Steve, Santogold.
Overall the line-up isn't that great though, probably the worst for a good few years, but there's a load of us going so should be good fun anyway.
