And so it came to be...the final wave of bands were announced for the Pavement-curated All Tomorrow's Parties Festival. It was met not with a fanfare, but with a polite smattering of applause, mostly from those who had seen it mature to something of relative beauty, but pale in comparison to its younger, prettier sibling.
ONE MORE TIME! This round we have:
Terry Reid featuring Matt Sweeney
Times New Viking
Who join this rabble of people who call themselves 'artists':
Broken Social Scene
Mission of Burma
Grail The Drones
Wildbirds & Peacedrums
Boris performing Feedbacker
Venom P. Stinger
Tim Chad & Sherry
Horse Guards Parade
The festival takes place at Butlins, Minehead from May 10 to May 13. Tickets are PRETTY MUCH already sold out so, unless you want to engage in some kind of unofficial ticket buying, you might find it difficult to gain entrance lawfully. More information can be found here. Remember there's still plenty of tickets left for the spectacular Matt Groening-curated ATP. Well worth a look.
