november the 5th-7th. no idea about line up: i imagine delphic will be their though!
any more details?
like Leeds festival packed into a sardine can
this week nme in the news section.
I thought they were. Oh lord I might just start buying Mojo and give up
go to one of these things! At the rate you're going you'll be sitting in a dark room on your own listening to Iannis Xenakis on the Xmas ATP weekend. And that will be no fun.
If so, you're right.
let's face it, it tends not to be awash with teenagers... might those dates not even coincide with half term?
should be good.
IT IS HELL
i must be a crusty old grump before reaching 25 but fuck that
but it won't be good.
They chose a lot of crap to play at that for such a prestigious Metal magazine. NME are likely to make the same mistakes I reckon and put on mid-range acts
1 of my friends went to this & was saying how rubbish it turned out to be.
Only remember seeing Clutch, Poison The Well and American Nightmare. Probably saw Icarus Line but that's it.
Biffy Clyro (given it was before they wrote guff)
Lostprophets (given it was touring for their debut)
Poison the Well
The Icarus Line
There's no pleasing some people. Where's shucks?
The Cooper Temple Clause
Hell is for Heroes
^ more bands on that than I'd have wanted to see at Reading/Leeds 2010.
Now that looked like an utter pile of crap somewhere in Wales...
Also Isolysis with their 39 listeners on last.fm.
Why are Errors, a band people have heard of, bottom of that list? Why do British Sea Power say yes to all sorts of shit festivals? How come, two months from fruition, they can still only announce two bands worthy of full logo promotion?
How fucking vague is that!? Is it going to be a megamix or some shit? Jesus.
(If this is the name of a totally hip band who are good: I knew that.)
(b) Wild Nothing are coming back to the UK! :')
Much improved under Krissi M. She's lovely, sigh...
This line-up is pants though - what's going on there?!?!
still you're better off listening to Iannis Xenakis.
Better Jimi Hendrix than Eric Clapton *shudder*
Eric Clapton doesn't even play a guitar anymore
Eric Clapton is the Richard Dawkins of rock'n'roll. "THIS IS THE TRUTH ABOUT MUSIC/THE WORLD. STOP LOOKING SO HAPPY."
which hopefully means they'll do some dates outside of this cunt magnet of a shitfest
but then clicked through on the Envy link and was presented with their albums and a bio on the Japanese Envy. But yes they also mention the "hotly-tipped gobby British MC" Envy on the same page. Really can't see an NME crowd knowing about the Jap Envy, but tbf I've not even browsed through that rag for ages so don't know what they cover.
would be nice to go apeshit with loads of loons.
They have both been amazing. You pretty much need to forget about getting any sleep though.
at least there's quizzes!
which seems a bit shit, not that I'd even contemplate going to this
but there aren't THAT many cunts at ATP. Sure you get an awful lot of elitist retards with shit for brains and no concept of what constitutes a decent human but I'd take those over the plunging v-necked primates and children this sort of thing will attract.
when there's at least a thin veneer of plausibility. Better bands? Babyshambles? Lordy...
the Bull and Gate.
the line up looks crap
the venue changed and they're giving away tickets? This is a fail isn't it..... I swear it was originally going to be an entire weekend and around 130 pounds
but the website made it quite clear that there was no music on the 7th and all you could do was check out by 12pm.
Even better, I was offered a press pass late last week. Me! A makeweight blogger!
There are, I think, four bands there I'd pay to see. And I've seen three of them.
Errors definitely used to be on the lineup, because they were last named on the poster for some reason.
Errors, Castrovalva, British Sea Power, 80s Matchbox, Envy, Trash Talk...
Well it's not THAT good then.
As I mentioned above, initially the link on the NME weekender actually linked to the Japanese Envy. No surprise that the NME don't even know which bands they are putting on.
i would definitely go. has the potential to be a fantastic car-crash. plus theres are 5-6 bands definitely worth seeing.
at the minute anyway. Ooh, controversial...
I'll record several pianos falling down the stairs and pop the CD in the post for you this evening.
Castrovalva should be fun
I'm clearing my Thursday schedule to listen to it repeatedly.
You know what's good? The new Brian Eno album.
You're not wrong there.
first competition entry = bingo 4 free tickets. its total car crash. isnt doherty in court on friday as well?
errors and chew lips have both pulled out of this gig?
I know - in fact I think I heard it from you - that it's not actually organised by the NME, but apart from a short paragraph's recommendation alongside this week's gig listings and the promoter's full page adverts they've not mentioned it at all.
the promoters are chic festivals, normally an ibizan promoter. all nme nights simply involve paying to use the nme name. so those club nme nights used to cost sumo £350 a time to use the name.
chic festivals have just paid to use the nme name, doesnt mean nme have picked the bands, and to be honest, a lot of them are very different to current nme trends? i can see how some of them fit the bill whatsoever!
and I'm pretty sure one of the guitarists fucked off minutes before the gig.
More tweets about Egyptian Hip-Hop's chalet party then any of the proper sets. Some copy'n'pasting from the Twitter hashtag, and I assure you that I haven't edited a load of positive feedback out as apart from a handful about specific bands there hasn't been any:
"where r all the fucking people? Sold out and no one seems to be watching the bands!"
"The bands have started early, but the crowds haven't"
"Put my son to bed after a stupid coked up bitch barged through him and pushed him over"
"Wild Nothing playing to about 50 people. I'm coming out of music hack hiatus... This is devastating."
"Last night was NUTS. Drinking with a dwarf, strippers on stilts & actually danced with the devil LOL" (from Envy, who as we've established is the British one )
"so much booze, so much drama, I think it's safe to say that everyones hungover. 2 doors down have their windows smashed "
"Lol what a waste of time #whodoispeaktoaboutmoney" (from one of the bands)
"Later, Manchester rapper Envy - the only hip-hop act to play the event - spat her machine gun-fast verses to a somewhat bemused and sparse crowd.
Next door, the Victoria pub was packed as the NME Trivia pub quiz took place, offering the prize of a six-berth chalet for the NME Weekender 2011."
Earlier in the day, Brighton newcomers The Laylanas opened the stage to a sombre crowd, before American Men and Emerge NME Radar Tour stars Wilder took to the stage to play well-received sets.
it was like people had forgotten how to even clap. well-received is definitely not how it seemed to me...
inviting audience members to parties in random chalet numbers - none of which actually took place.
then i read the thread and was like: oh :(
in a bid to confuse both Envy fans and Stars fans with one release.
