i want to go.
in a little enclosure away from the stages and you're only allowed about 2 pints per day? can't see it happening.
i don't tend to drink that much at festivals. too much to do, too little sleep.
But TV on the radio, and Night Marchers aside, I've seen all the bands on it that I'd pay money to see already.
Pleased that there is a club bit called Zizek there though. Little things...
i think i've seen everyone on there i like at least once.
does that mean i don't want to see them again? no.
does that mean i don't want to see them in a place full of palm trees and with mountains in the background? hell no.
i found flights for £326 return. i wish i had £326.
for a 3-day ticket.
fuck you, exchange rates.
is indeed beautiful. though if camping you'll melt in the heat.
Keep me updated.
ps, they're still split up.
I would have definitely made the trip. Not too fussed now though.
I think a Zane Lowe Interview drinking game could be on the cards.
Every time he says 'amazing', 'outstanding' or 'incredible' = One shot.
Refers to a band as 'the guys' or 'you guys'. One shot.
Says 'Right now'. One Shot.
Mentions he was in a band once. Three shots.
Mentions a specific instance where he saw the band. One shot.
Uses the phrase 'Glastonbury moment' Two shots.
Says how excited he is about the new material. One shot.
Says the word 'exclusive' with any type of emphasis. One shot.
There must be more...
it was hard.
"This album is so phenomenal. Smalltown America, Jetplane Landing, Andrew Ferris from Jetplane Landing, it's a very reputable, very cool, very independent record label. Not those independents that go and sign deals with major labels and get all their money... This is independent, you know. Northern Irish music, Smalltown America, Jetplane Landing is the band, fantastic. Cahir from Jetplane Landing starts this band, Fighting With Wire, they come out and they make this record like a while ago, Man Vs Monster, absolutely phenomenal from the start to the end, a flawless modern rock record, completely done independent, flown to the States, sign a big deal with Atlantic Records. It's all coming out in the next couple of months, bells and whistles, the whole thing, and I couldn't be happier. That's the story, here's the record, radios up, no excuses, GO!"
he lives near me. i once saw him peering into the local sainsburys.. uh.. local, looking a bit confused.
<Adds 'phenomenal' and 'fantastic' to drinking game list>
And then I'm going to see Dan Deacon in San Francisco the week after with his full ensemble and it's going to be super super awesome.
be brave enough to get on a plane for that long.
(yeah, i panic on planes)
that lineup is looking pretty sweet!
is to go to SxSW, spend the two weeks inbetween dicking around the US (maybe go to Minneapolis and be all "OMG THIS PLACE IS MENTIONED IN A HOLD STEADY SONG AND SO IS THIS PLACE AND..") and then go to Coachella. BEST HOLIDAY EVER.
(you think im joking right? my fear of planes might be over by then)
that line up does not look that exciting.
it's also a lot poorer than past line-ups
Bjork and AF aside, it really wasn't that amazing.
Sonic Youth, JAMC, Ghostface, Patton, El-P, Rage, Grizzly Bear...were we at the same festival?
there's about 15 bands i'd quite happily watch on the first day alone
the line up is amazing.
it makes Glasto 08 look like Reading or something.
is written as a "Small" act. :(
But seeing him at Anfield won't be topped by Coachella.
It's the total opposite of the Glastonbury "take your own stuff and drink your own stuff" ethos. Frisk searches, checkpoints etc. You can't even camp in circles with your mates - the campsites are marked out like a car park.
Americans don't know how to have fun. Stay here.
