Of course, would be even more excited if the last four bands were announced...
I keep completely forgetting about this. Must check I still fit into my trunks.
SO exited. It shall be my first ATP. Who else is going?
I was leaping around my kitchen this morning to No Age, giddy with the thought.
I feel like I should dig out my old baby book and add a new page
Can someone promise i will be able to see MBV and Sonic Youth based on this information please?
but only because I have nothing better to do than go through it with a highlighter this afternoon.
I'd sort of forgotten all about it, and then I remembered various bands that are playing and got really excited.
the lack of new bands is a kevin shields thing.
remember, this is the man who still apparently hasn't written the liner notes to those forever delayed MBV reissues...
and they'll be announced along with the times
Do we know it's 4 more acts? That 2 more than I was expecting.
See you all there.
question for Summers which may apply to others so I'll ask it here. I booked a chalet under the deposit scheme so I don't have any kind of official ticket to give to the Butlins people. Do I need to show them something?
this weekend with booking reference numbers and other details.
I just decided to only listen to MBV ATP acts till it comes round, let's see how long that lasts...
this'll be my third atp. There's nobody on the bill I'm in a mood of, I must see no matter what. So I think I'm just gonna kick back & relax all weekend.
What's everybody's must seen stuff?
2. Sky sports in bar
De La Soul
J Mascis & The Fog
Other than that, I'll be playing darts.
stank up the joint last time. Do we know if they are doing the full Lauren Hill, 2000 piece percussion section this time, or will it just be some cool dudes rapping?
I'm hoping it's just some cool dudes rapping. If it sucks though, I ain't afraid to ship out and head to the dartboard.
They went down an absolute storm, it just wasn't for me. Because I am grumpy.
Hoping for a more back-to-basics affair this time.
Yo La Tengo
but there's a bunch of other stuff that I'm looking forward to as well.
ugh. someone please buy my two berth for a very very good price! £175-£200 depending on how much you can afford!
can sleep on my friends floor.pm me please
late night bowling with those cool lights!
i live about an hour from taunton, our lot is going to get public bus and try to rock up to butlins as early as possible to take advantage of the 2p slot machines AND ALL THE NEW TORCHES THAT WILL BE PUT IN THEM
I still have £1.50 in tuppences I won at Patton/Melvins. I'm going to reinvest.
i used my torch the other day to light up the dashboard on my way home from work on the M25 - i had to because all the lights had blown, it was pitch black and i couldn't read my speedo, most useful torch ever!!!
on people's must-see lists so far, I'm assuming that's because it's stating the obvious? Bit odd otherwise..
I'm well up for MBV, Sonic Youth, The Pastels, Fucked Up, Le Volume Courbe, both Mascis bands, No Age, Swervedriver, and plenty of others really.
I'd also like some better club nights this time please, that one in Crazy Horse at Fans Strike Back was really patchy and there wasn't much else on late.
Very excited generally!
I have to go back up late sunday... I wish i was still irresponsible enough to pull sickies.
I'd forgotten how good the bill for this actually was! I've never seen lightning bolt before so that should be incredible, really want to watch the pastels, ariel pink, no age, and mbv of course.
And a two berth chalet to myself!
I'm far too hyper to eat my tea now!!!
ariel pink will be the bestest.
Just a reminder that we are selling one of the chalets we booked. It's a room only chalet and you can buy 1,2,3 tickets or the whole chalet. Tickets are £155 each. It's perfect for those who can't find anyone to share with.
OK sales pitch over.
I got my ticket for 80p.
but the ATP ones cost a bit more I'm afraid.
they should be getting dispatched pretty soon, right?
i rang seetickets (boooooo....) as i've moved house since i ordered them in april and she said "if you haven't got them by the wednesday before, give us a ring".
as well as the other stuff we're sending
I don't recall needing them before. Isn't my card and ID enough?
ATP! ATP! ATP! ATP!
and on the monday i get back I'm going to see Sunn0))) at the sage in gateshead for free
I demand a hug from someone.
Most excited by Sonic Youth, MBV, No Age, Lightning Bolt, TPOBPAH, A Place To Bury Strangers, Serena Maneesh, J Mascis and YO LA TENGO!
