The State of This Line up


#101

there’s a truly astonishing number of crap bands there, jeez

if i got stuck there, i’d consider going to see Razorlight (first album reminds me of sitting in the sun after finishing my GCSEs) but probably wouldn’t. i’d go see Trampolene cos the bass player’s gf is a good friend of mine and he’s a really nice bloke even if his music’s not that interesting. i’d go see Dave McCabe + Ian Skelly cos The Coral were genuinely good. and apparently Charlotte Church’s thing is really good so i’d genuinely love to see her set.

so that’s one band and half of one band i’d actively choose to go see at any other festival, out of what, more than 30 bands? amazing

#103

This really is something… makes the Truck Festival line up seem great and cutting edge by comparison.


#104

Its when Chris Helme and The Twang are mentioned that really does it. My god.


#105

Better then the mercury shortlist.
At least it’s a laugh

From the ‘state of that line up’ to the ‘state of that festival’. Apparently Truck was a bit of a shitshow as well?

‘No festival today’


#115

They’ve posted the personal details of the guy heading production duties and blaming it on him, this is going to turn real ugly real fast.


#116

its nice that so many of the bands found other venues. ought and big ups played a free show at the old blue last when jabberwocky got cancelled and it was so good it basically made the whole trip to london worth it


#117

Ouch.
