Some years ago, when I would see DiSers chatting about Indietracks on the music boards, I genuinely thought it was some big in-joke and that Indietracks didn’t exist. Looking at the band names I just couldn’t believe these were real bands being discussed, playing at a festival called INDIETRACKS.
I remember being in a pub in Brighton and I heard two guys talking about Indietracks, so I assumed they were DiSers taking their in-joke off the boards and out into the real world.
I was wrong. There really is a festival called Indietracks that people go to. There really are bands with names like Kirsty & The Skirting Board, Chirpy Meringues and Pikachu’s Cousin. And actually, it sounds like quite a nice festival.
So there you go. I am sorry.
