will post the line-up at 7 (EMBARGO TIL THEN)
no you won't
Gruff Rhys, Allo Darlin’, Dean Wareham, Rocketship and Withered Hand are among the bands playing this year’s Indietracks Festival, held on 25-27 July at the Midland Railway in Derbyshire.
Also playing Indietracks this year will be Spearmint, The Spook School, The Popguns, Sweet Baboo, Let’s Wrestle, The Very Most, Franny and Zooey, The Wellgreen, Night Flowers, ONSIND, The Blue Minkies, The Yawns, Thee AHs and Lost Tapes.
really can't wait to be watching Rocketship, Jordan making wry comments in my ear, barely able to stand up because i've drunk so much, trapped in a metal shed because it's raining so much etc
rocketship were this old band from the early 90s. american (poss canadian?). one of the first bands to mix long droney bits with melodic jangly pop tunes afaik. boy/girl vocals etc. 'a certain smile, a certain sadness' canonical.
line-up is good in general i think. allo darlin were, almost literally, made to headline indietracks. dean wareham, gruff rhys both acts that i would like to see but not at their own shows. hate withered hand with a passion though.
it's good that there are more american bands on the undercard this year.
were on before vaselines but had a headline length set i reckon... never quite sure who is and isn't headlining at this though
Given it's on my birthday and I do really like both the headliners. Though the rest I've never heard of or are indifferent to (saw Sweet Baboo supporting Euros Childs a few years back and found it all rather bemusing).
should be good.
i'd rather watch Pendulum at Reading
Is their website down or did I finally find a site blocked at work?
