doing Kelly Lee Owens dirty here
Sorry, that’s completely fair. We sat and listened to her, James Holroyd and Erol Alkan then stood for Hot Chip. That was still five hours stood on concrete!
Couldn’t get in until 6ish - think my partner would have left me if I’d ditched her with the three kids at 1pm.
Probably a licensing requirement.
Possibly so, but it makes me wonder what dictates which events are required to have this and which aren’t? The only other outdoor music event I went to this year (I saw loads of outdoor comedy) was Latitude Festival and that didn’t have it.
I say this as someone who’s never even smoked a cigarette in his 50 years, it all felt very heavy handed.
It will be the Local Council with input from the Police. Probably thought there was an increased likelihood of drug use compared to other outdoor events (the headliners name probably doesn’t help!) so would only grant a licence if there was sniffer dogs etc.
Been bugging me for a couple of days but track 4 on the new album is basically a total copy of this (especially the bit from 4:17 minutes in…)
There’s an hour of them with Lauren Laverne from the breakfast show this morning.
As much as I enjoy LL, there is no excuse to talk over The Pills Won’t Help You Now.
So (at least) 3 of their 4 albums since the best of came out have been really good. Just really impressed with the consistency…
Remember enjoying this a lot back in the day…
I love Portishead but why does he feel the need to post this. Just comes across as nasty.
He’s always been like that, both on Twitter and in his stage banter. Just a crank who can be ignored.
This post paid for by PROF$.
I wonder what his DiS username is?
Very ironic use of the word dullard
Yeah, when bombarded with the prodigious output of those two acts (four albums between them in the 90s), who had time for anything else.
He’s obviously talking about side projects, too - always been a fan of There Is Nothing Left To Lose, has our Geoff.
Everyone knows music attained perfection in 1993.
It’s a scientific fact.
Who had time for 90s dance music when you had the sonic universe of the Nicest Guy in Rock™ to listen to
Just worked out that In Utero came out 2 years before Exit Planet Dust, and Big Jim Barrow’s absolutely done me, fair play to him
Portishead also notoriously prolific.
