Consider me excited.
I was saying last week how I've never seen them but would love to AND I said how I'd like to go to Jodrell Bank again when the weather's nice...WHAT A COINCIDENCE :D
Live like 15 minutes away from it, remember my Gran used to take me round the gardens there when I was little but haven't been in years. Glastonbury then this in consecutive weekends, doesn't really get much better than that. 40 quid for a ticket does seems a little steep though
Also a huge BSP fan, so this is a doubly great looking gig for me!
should be a good day.hope its a soft bulletin show.
and very excited!
just bought my ticket. Not seen them before, so hope this will be as special as my mind says it's going to be!
got very excited when I got an email about this yesterday. Should be a brilliant day.
yay looking forward to that!
I was just about to buy a ticket!
The website suggests so anyway.
should be amazing. Seeing them headline t'other stage at Glastonbury last year was one of my favourite gigs of the year.
No Cox though: http://www.knutsfordguardian.co.uk/news/9117989.Brian_Cox_cancels_his_appearance_at_first_Jodrell_Bank_festival/
Know of anyone who would want them?
I'd never seen them before and the show was everything I'd hoped!

They are excellent pics
here's a Lips clip for you all....
in the car park the end, was stuck immobile for one and a half hours because of it.
Great gig though, OK Go were better than expected, British Sea Power good and with robot vs bear fight ace and flaming lips were incredible. Despite avoiding the songs I wanted to hear especially (was a bit down when pompeii et gotterdamerung was announced since I saw that last time and was hoping for watching the planets when the gong got taken out) however their performance was incredible. What is the Light was great.
needs sorting out before the next one. I had a drive back to Leeds to be getting on with and did not get on the 'actual' road until gone 1am
luckily no car park queue for us as we had a b&b down the road but the queues for food were crazy, 5 food stalls for 5000 plus people was pathetic. We queued for nearly an hour for something that wasn't even our first choice just because it had the fastest moving queue. You can't expect people to be on site from 4pm to 11pm and not eat, especially when you've banned them from
...bringing in food. And get some decent lager for next time, not bloody Carlsberg. But apart from that it was an amazing gig, looking forward to the next one.
Agree with most. I didn't get to eat all day, so alcohol became my only sustenance (which led to a great night and f**ked legs the next day).
Brilliant gig - would've loved to have a few different tracks (Watching the Planets would've been perfect, so would any of their many space related songs), but with that setting, the sunshine and the Lips it was a special day. Loved the Joddrell speech before the end. I was lucky enough to be meeting a taxi just down the road as the queues looked pretty grim, but a very memorable first Transmission gig.
Loved BSP too.
I make a habit of missings these one-off gigs (I Like Trains at The Deep in Hull, Arcade Fire at Edinburgh Castle, etc etc).
British Sea Power have come out with a load of Jodrell Bank-based merchandise to commemerate. I'm gonna get the BSP constellations poster - to constantly remind myself to be a better person and go to these things :-(
