He knows where it's at
right about Mayer Hawthorne, had checked out a track or two first and liked it a lot, and was entertaining live, but there was a bit too much of a forced American "LET'S HAVE FUN!" type wedding band vibe being projected from the stage unfortunately.
the Flaming Lips
their sound is massively influenced by US stuff though. and this video is obscenely American.
seems like Sub Pop are trying to make them fully American? I guess to go with the fact they already sound and look it. Video works though.
I fucking hope I get my job there again this yeeeer
that saturday is fucking nutzzzzzzzzz
Jack and/or Nataly
so wrong. I bet it's like 1 in 47,546
there were some twats who threw things, but equally there was 6 police vans that turned up with riot shields
same as the flaming lips did, they wont win but I don't think it's at all a bad/odd thing they've been nominated. MPP probably sold about 10 times as many copies as Strawberry Jam.
and finally breaking through this yeah yeah?
for pitchforks worst album covers of the year
fame is me
the blood of four fat goths
a lock of winehouse's beehive
a collection of sweat beads and hairgel drippings off the koko wall. post club nme.
the remains of a dodgy joint found on the floor outside the world's end
all mixed with a pint of snakebite into an oversized leather bondage boot
the ultimate "not getting the no band t-shirt at their own gigs" rule?
and a lot of time is gonna be spent on press probably. Just travel! Plenty of time to book a cheap megabus. You cant be that far from one of those dates? (unless you're in Ireland) It is quite annoying how "tours" are always like that over here, but think of other countries like the US and Australia, people drive for hours to get to gigs.
Low play all the time these days
these days if there's two acts worth watching on an episode then it's a good one
and I love Talking Heads
WELL DONE. YOU SHOULD BE LIKE SOME KIND OF HUGELY INSIGHTFUL STATING THE OBVIOUS (if you only look at the main stages) AND MISSING THE POINT ENTIRELY GUIDE.
been waiting ages for someone to do a good remix of this

god people like to moan on here
or End Of The Road? Like, they weren't paying them enough to even cover travel...
C) Y’know, I think it will, as cheese can be pretty heavy.
it's like something out the Simpsons
mid-sized venue in london now. it's like Shepherds Bush Empire with better sound and views. I much prefer a dirty skank hole for certain gigs, but they've done a great job, £4 pints aside (hipflasks people)
I cant remember why I didnt go to this gig. Or the rough trade show.
William + JoFo = joy
is as bad as the others mentioned, no? Almost... I havent actually heard Chris TT, he seems to only exist at Truck festival. Im sure he's probably alright actually.
*ends this pointless post*
cant you review the whole event?
Im Amy and Im an indie
A) ...an ice cream man
if at all researched (looks like all you did was go on the bands myspace and looked at their top mates, and didnt even read an interview on THIS SITE with them) that I cant even be arsed having a go at it, but I think it's a great fucking album and hopefully people will pay attention.
can you stop saying the festival didnt sell out because of him please. It didnt sell out because the weather has been shite for ages, there are about 40 new festivals about, people have realised they can go abroad for a festival for the same price, etc etc...
Also, this is the first year they've announced the line up before it went on sale (I think), so there was none of that "I'll buy a ticket incase it's Prince" stuff going on. This was always going to be the year it struggled to sell. And I use the term struggled very loosely, there's only about 3,00 tickets left. Jay Z has nothing to do with it. Plus it will probably sell out by wednesday anyway. You keep talking as if you are some oracle of Glastonbury because you've been once, when if you did a minor amount of research you'd find out that it's only the past few years it has actually sold out in a minute (post-fence)
