havent got a ticket yet though....
but im sure it wont happen
I know :(
I have my ticket and I'm VERY excited. I bought a Taraf De Haidouks album at the weekend, it's stupidly good and they'll probably be one of my favourite acts of the weekend. Does this mean I will meet you Emmi?!
I just need to get a chalet sorted and get planning and organise my friends etcetera. Should be a lotta fun!
I'm with my friend and someone else who I don't know, and I want to meet people. Will you come and dance with me?
I need a dance partner for Taraf De Haidouks and The Damned, you can be it!
But I've heard stories about their live show and it sounds pretty interesting. Lydia Lunch sounds like the best bitch ever.
But I'll pop along just to see Thurston.
come say hi if you see me, please. Would be nice to meet you.
and Monotonix and Boss Hog and Melvins.
i'm trying to sort out my brother an some of his mates to go, at the moment.
Paying Joe at the end of the month. WIN
for the record. Though someone should for services to comedy.
no ticket yet but soon to be getting one
i'm a lot more excitted about going to this now that meat puppets and os mutantes are gonna be there ....
ClicheGuevara is absolutely correct, it's all about the Butties.
I'm looking forward to another round of seeing ace bands then trying spot them in Burger King
I'm just going to stand in the middle of a public area all weekend yelling "THE BELLY OF THE WHALE!!" until one of the band comes over to complete the reference.
Then we will bong... uh, bond..
four people to wear sandwich boards for the duration of the weekend spelling out WHITE! WHALE! HOLY! GRAIL! that'd be, y'know, dead good
I have a spare ticket, too.
i've booked a chalet and everything.
eh eh? do ya?
I'll see everyone there!!!1*
As for the 'who's in Burger King' game I won't play that because nothing can possibly top the 'What are Merzbow and Keiji Haino going to have from the Thai Food Stall' game at Supersonic.
Yer Actual, Dave Pearce
*probably not if all the other ATPs are anything to go by
keiji haino had a victorian walking cane with him .... can't remember what he had for tea, though ....
it wasn't actually much of a game
thanks for that link to ...Thunderbolt Pagoda btw. That Arthur TV channel is ace! I also watched a documentary about garlic.
can we put on the jukebox' game was another one. I was not playing that game.
I thought everyone liked that Kittie song...
I'm there. First ATP an' all. Just booked my leave from work. Yay.
That's gonna be wild.
I've booked 3 days off work.
Sounds more like GayTP.
I think we'll be in the 6 and the 4 will be the quieter one. We've still got 2 beds to fill as well, but i have one possible taker and he has one possible taker so hopefully we'll be right. Let me know if you hear of anyone else though.
So it's you, me, Tim, Gaz, James and some other people I'm not entirely sure about. Fun!
That point is 5 in the morning.
Andy locustscomeinspring is a possible actually, and you're right on the Dom. Can't remember what Liz said to it all, but she could be another of the I don't knows.
Hopefully wont be a typical ATP and just see about 4 bands all weekend, roll on December.
I missed Silver Jews because I was watching Back To The Future on the telly :(
we watched Shaft instead of Wolf Eyes, excellent decision I think you'll agree. The DJ in the Crazy Horse later played the theme tune.
i saw about 10 minutes of Wolf Eyes and then went to play beachhead in the centre stage arcade. the band provided the perfect soundtrack for a game where the primary aim is to mercilessly gun down men as they run out of boats.
(including i'm getting back into getting back into getting back into getting back or something into you <3 <3) but the pain from the drumming game-induced blisters on my thumbs was so bad i had to go buy plasters. then i went to my chalet and ate bagels and drank a hideous amount of baileys before going to see animal collective and dancing like a tit.
I LOVE ATP SO MUCH
Jacob and Louis are booking our chalet this week :)
And I believe so is James_Delve and some other Boro types.
but it's not looking good. Shame, because it looks like my fantasy "perfect" festival.
bleak says she has spares in her chalet. People always have spare places.
is there anything nice to see in Newcastle?
Will you show us around?
Come to the boro instead, much more chance of seeing some locals figthing, good day trip.
ticket booked too. Very excited about the new additions, I missed Meat Puppets at the last one due to extreme tiredness and hunger.
and I refuse to go in the quiet chalet BTW. That's for snorers and people who think going to sleep is fun.
to escape this. But just hang out in the other one most of the time.
in the naughty corner.
should be good fun
Plays by his own rules.
We’ve got a couple of chalets-worth of fun. We are planning on picking up where the last ATP left off, meaning that we shall have to start the weekend being half-heartedly chased by Butlins security around the site in a pacman-stylee.
at 3am in the morning with an mp3 player and speakers, walking into parties, dancing for them, then heading off. Each time we did it we'd gather a few more people like the pied piper of Hamlyn, until there were about forty of us in a large gang wandering around.
Then the security guards tried to tell us to go to bed, so we split up and then met up again five minutes later. We found that if you walked out of sight of the security guards, they'd forget about you and wander off. This cycle repeated itself a couple of times until they twigged, and chased about twenty of us into the lobby of one of the chalet blocks. Unfortunately there were so many of us that we ended up jamming the door shut behind us, and had to be pulled out one by one by security.
that's Metal Gear Solid
i think i was with you
Were you really?
Well hello then. Nice to meet you again.
Also: chasingabee, mrs chasingabee, and ATP legend - Mr Adrian
in a DiSer-free chalet of beardy Brummie men.
Can you ask Charlie if Mothertrucker will play a late-night party chalet set?
YEAH, It's going to be FUCKING AWESOME :D stop getting me too excited 4 months before it happens :(
Os Mutantes! YAYYYYY!
and here's some photos I took of Os Mutantes last year
i was expecting them all to look almost dead by now ;)
yes i am.
Got one more installment of £50 to pay and then it's paid off. Need to do a shedload of myspace (or whatever) research before this one I think.
HELL THIS IS GOING TO ROCK.
me me me me me me me me me :) and a few friends of course
Clearing the site on the morning of the 8th.
and for the first time in 2 years my girlfriend also.this makes me happy.woo!!!
Still trying to decide on a costume!
The first time I'm able to afford an ATP ticket and its the first line up in years that holds no interest for me at all
If Heatmiser and some queercore are announced, I'll consider it
Cause I'm not gay. I'm thinking about coming out for that t-shirt though.
But yeah, it'd be a lot of money just to go see Mastodon
and Monotonix, who are the new Les Savy Fav!
And Soulsavers with Lanegan and Rahzel and Dalek.
I love ATP because you always find some bands you love, no matter what the lineup. Last year at my first one I had a great time despite not knowing that many bands on the line up besides Boris and Portishead, Oneida and Thurston. I discovered Earth and Fuck Buttons, who have done my two favourite albums of the year.
I always discover new stuff at ATP - this year is probably the most obscure in terms of stuff I'm familiar with (except maybe Thurston's weekend) since I've started going. Does it put me off? Not a bit.
that monotonix are going to get shut-down by the security at the event, and then play in a chalet, that'd be awesome lol :)
Live, they're completely insane and violent (in a fun way) but only one of them drinks, and they stayed at my friend's house after the gig, where apparently they just had a cup of tea and went to bed! Intrigued to know what the Butlins staff will think, the Pontins staff seemed to hate ATP and everyone who went.
Wahey, just gotta hope Air Frog don't go on strike
I'm literally going. In December not now. Thought i'd mention it on here before I tweeted it to Stephen Fry
got tickets last week :D
