Possibly Bluetones. They made me so angry, and all their fans looked fat and silly.
Deftones were shit though.
i was more deeply disheartened by you not enjoying Deftones :'-(
But oh my, Dragonforce were probably better and I fell asleep in a field when they were on.
i fell asleep to the aptly naed thrills at Reading 2003 before the mars volta, i don't like the thrills, but they did allow me to catch up on some well needed kip, so i wouldn't say that was a bad set
I've never fallen asleep like that a set before, so I knew things weren't looking too good for them.
being laid in a massive tent with people milling around and just floating off to music that doesn' really grab your attention can give you funny dreams
I actually fell asleep in the main field.
I had no idea what was going on when I woke up.
Anyway, I'm going to get my bus to Leeds now.
fat and silly. I've seen the Bluetones about 15 times and they've NEVER disappointed me. I can't wait til Nov.
possibly compounded by having a mate at uni who was obsessed by them. Chirpy indie pop hurts my face.
miserable bastard x
making me feel old that's making me grumpy!
I'm not silly. The bluetones are great.
Worst band at a festival? Hmmmmmm. The Open made me want to gouge my eyes out at reading 04.
I'm sure when I did student radio they used to send us a cd every week, the cunts.
I was there too, and decided to sit down and do a crossword instead.
in the same tent in 2004. small world!
if I'd have known you could have helped me with 17 down. 'Ajar, pointless twee indie band (4) O_EN'
were the first band I ever saw at a festival. Talk about an anti-climax. Luckily I saw dj format featuring abdominal about 2 hours later.
abdominal was brilliant, did you get the dj faze cd they sold/signed after the set?
I wish I had done now.
but there is a song about fast food which is quite fun
I've heard that!
Abdominal = my favourite MC
if fast food's wrong hey i don't wanna eat right, i'll prolly get fat and my dentist says my teeth might fall outa my head, but hey that's MY problem cause if the grub is greasy i'm gon gobble it!
and welcome, if you can wipe your feet on the doormat, please come in OH FORMAT, we got company, wheres my manners let me take your coat I hope your hungry for some favourable quotes.
some jazz/classical/power metal guitar band on the jazz stage at glastonbury. i was too stoned to move tho. it was dreadful.
were so disappointing :(
That was pretty bad...
it was their last ever performance. one of my friends was very upset.
I like them, and they were ace at Reading when they played the second stage, but they were just so boring - their moody stage manner doesn't translate well to arenas.
they weren't too hot that day, i left to watch New Order who were equally as boring.
Snow Patrol will be making tentative shuffles into the world of fashion- having designed a range for men's High St retailer Burtons. The 'SP Crew' range features sensible corduroy trousers, long sleeve tshirts, warm socks and fleeces, all available in shades of brown.
well that takes the fucking biscuit, doesn't it.
at Reading 2000, I was so fucking bored but it was between them, Babybird and Ian Brown. MORcentric. I drank cider and tried to fall alseep.
The girl I was with (not then my girlfriend, but soon to be my wife) really wanted to see the Phonics, but I managed to persuade her not to and to go for a walk instead.
Worst I've seen though - either Puddle of Mud or Wheatus.
At Leeds Fest in 2001 or something. Sat on the grass banks deciding what the hell was going on.
That was pure comedy gold.
One year we gathered round then signing tent and sung the circus theme tune at the clown.
and the clown thing went high up in the air? All blurs into one horrible, cacophonous noise and show.
I thought they were hilarious, I had so much fun watching them.
to watch Elliot Smith
i din't mind that set, but it was a bit of a let down after Slipknot, Rage, Blink 182 and Daphne and celleste!
saw emmy the great and johnny flynn at brixton jamm one time and the guys from littl'ans spent most of their set talking as loud as they could. fuckheads.
or All American Rejects at Reading in 2003. GC were shockingly awful, despite putting up with the crap thrown at them. AAR sent me to sleep.
that ruined their set for me i think.
ok go were funny that year, they played get over it and EVERYONE left, second biggest tent exodise i've ever seen, after the time the strokes got moved to the mainstage in 2001, i felt really sorry for the band that came on as that happened.
although I always get them confused with sugarcult, so it may have been them instead. Oh well, all I know is, I sat down to watch them and just passed out for a while. Luckily I was with a mate.
Also, LOL at Ok Go.
and merge into one.
I drive to the music I've copied on to my xbox! :D
it's much more fun driving a million miles an hour listening to Boris, or having McLusky on before launcing a mobile diner into a motorway intersection.
I unlocked an achievement for getting 5 stars in all the crash junctions yesterday. Hooray!
they need to learn that there is more to being in a 'garage' band than being a total total cock, singing badly, and playing like you don't give a shit.
The lead singer actually said, while they were onstage at tapestry (small, calm festival) 'anyone got any coke' 'anyone got any pills'
I heckled her.
but wrong was she?
no...she was just a twat
at atp were fucking atrocious.
they were relevatory!
Actually, can I revise my answer to this? They were so dreadful that even I noticed, and I was off my anvil on shrooms at the time.
so damn awful.
Faith No More, Cypress Hill, Senseless Things, Republica, Minty, Bodycount...
"I ammmm" "In Laaa bour"
"shouting on the rooftopsss"
"hello halfords" *
*they let them use that song for the advert here
but I don't think it was.
If my knowledge of smash hits is correct she was called 'Saffron Republica'.
The Twang @ Pukelpopp (had never heard them, wanted to see if the hatred was justified, it is).
Kate Nash & The Pigeon Detectives @ Summer Sundae
Wu Tang Clan @ Dour
All the god awlful Polish reggae @ Open'er
Patti Smith & Buzzcocks @ Primavera (shame because Buzzcocks normally put on a good show)
Patti Smith @ ATP vs Fans
Cat Power @ ATP - Dirty Three
Shannon Wright @ La Route du Rock Hiver
was amazing at Primavera!
You are quite right - the first person who has agreed with me (or vice versa).
ATP is a very lovely thing but Patti Smith was abysmal and the na-na-na-na Nirvana cover was quite the worst abomination I have ever heard at a festival.
Clueless guitar solos, old style rawk stylings - awful awful rubbish.
It is quite clear the last three decades have passed her band by obliviously....
I am rather living in fear of being subjected to RHCP at this year's Reading Fest as a load of my mates like them....I may sneak off under a cloud of alcohol..
would make me wonder where the human race went wrong/ I still don't know why so many people like them.
Wu Tang were funny at Dour...
Bright Eyes was awful the next day, case in point being someone who obviously craved some excitement shouting 'WU TANG WU TANG WU TANG' in the middle of it..................
I have never thought much of Bright Eyes, but I really enjoyed his/their performance that day
Robbie Williams at Glastonbury
Pink Grease at Reading
All completely atrocious. Ricky and Robbie, what a pair of plonkers.
WHAT were you thinking john?!?
they were very silly. I wonder where they are now? Same goes for Do Me Bad Things..
as they took ages to work out how to restring a guitar?
God they were awlful
I was there. Part of me died.
I've always found pink grease to be pretty fun when I've seen them
wouldn't buy their records, but their whole schtick is very entertaining
while that was on.
It was funny though.
Slipknot - Agreed. Luckily only had to witness about 20 minutes whilst the ladies in the party queued for the toilets. Myself and a mate managed to pass most of that time by having a kickaround using a large stone that was lying nearby. I blamed Slipknot rather than my lack of stone control ability for the bruises on my shins that appeared afterwards
puddle of mudd
thank you very much!
The Feeling at V last year.
I was made to watch them with the person who got me my ticket, booze and food and so I felt obliged. A little piece of my soul died that day though. I point blank refused to stay beyond one song of Starsailors, but that would have been up there too.
Arctic Monkeys @ Leeds 06
Wow. I waited for four hours at the front. I had those evil stomach cramps you get when you've been stood up for as long as you can remember, fuelling your thirst with warm beer.
Feeder were ok, The Streets made me laugh (in a good way), then the Arctics came on.
I could have sobbed. I was so fucking infuriated by their lack of effort or interest. I felt robbed of my time. Looking around, everyone was just blindly accepting them and singing along.
I thought to myself, 'you people have fucking low standards'. Then I shoved through thousands of dickhead fans, almost throwing up just as I reached the tent.
I would not rescue Alex Turner from a housefire.
god knows what I was doing or who, quite frankly, they were or are.
alexisonfire, last year at leeds i think.
if not then The Films at this festival in notts this summer.
fortunatly Idlewild followed and produced the best festival i have ever seen - which was nice.
