  1. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Chvrches are back
  2. 2017 on Spotify

    And the closing track in my Top Songs 2017 playlist is Spice Girls - Viva Forever. Fantastic.
  3. 2017 on Spotify

    Surprising Avenged Sevenfold inclusion! My last.fm stats substitute them out for Wolf Alice, which makes more sense
  4. Album of the Year 2017

    1. Slowdive - Slowdive 2. Lana Del Rey - Lust for Life 3. Wolf Alice - Visions of a Life 4. Alvvays - Antisocialites 5. Lorde - Melodrama 6. Declan McKenna - What Do You Think About the Car? Tried to limit myself to a top 5, but couldn't leave young Declan's album off, given how much I've listened to it. Top 6 it is!
  5. 2017 New Music Thread

    I enjoyed the slightly awkward round of applause for M&S
  6. 2017 New Music Thread

    Loving the new Alvvays album. Was already familiar with most of the new songs from the gigs, but nice to have studio recordings. Relieved New Haircut made it to the album after all - one of my live favourites. Great gig in Manchester too the other night. Not sure I've been that close to a band before. Was almost being pushed on to Molly's pedal board at one point ha.
  7. Muse

    Aye. That was the moment I knew the best days were probably over. Watching Reading now on BBC4, and it's going down a lot better with the crowd than Glasto. The band seem like they are enjoying it more too.
  8. Muse

    What a setlist, and the gig itself looked great on the livestream. Glorious alone makes me very jealous. Decided I needed an indefinite Muse break after Glasto, but regretting not trying for tickets for now. '10 years ago me' would be ashamed. This was the sort of gig I used to dream about seeing.
  9. Lana Del Rey - still a possibility?

    Ah yes, remember her claiming to be a Liverpool fan a few years ago. The Echo Arena date suggests she has stuck with them, despite the lack of silverware and Stevie G's unfortunate slip. Good on her. Anyway, managed to get 2 tickets this morning. Glad, as the new album is excellent. I don't think she'll ever release anything quite as good as Born to Die/Paradise again, but think this will settle in 2nd place. Get Free is an instant favourite, and her vocal on 13 Beaches is sublime.
  10. Arcade Fire

    Last night was outrageously good. Back to basics Arcade Fire doing wall to wall hits. No gimmicks - just pure energy and huge sing alongs. It was like the Karma Police moment from Tuesday extended to an entire gig! The band seemed genuinely moved too. Great weather, cool venue. Magic

    Glasto was my 10th time seeing them, and came away feeling pretty underwhelmed. It was such a predictable and by the numbers performance. Didn't help that it was essentially a stripped back version of their arena tour that year. However my mate (not particularly a fan) saw them for the first time and was very impressed. Also, 10 years since the first Wembley shows. Now THAT was a gig.
  12. Arcade Fire

    Hope you're packing your sun cream, pal. Scorcher!
  13. Arcade Fire

    Oooh 2 hour set would be good. Wasn't planning getting there til 7 though.
  14. New security measures in place

    We were stood by the search desks, anxiously awaiting our repacking fate, before a member of security barked at us to keep moving, as if we were stupid to be expecting to be searched! Such a relief, mind. I've never been so jolly and chatty while talking to the wristband and ticket crew!
  15. Arcade Fire

    Aye, Haiti is always a live highlight for me. Powerellion too (though seem to remember seeing them do Month of Maybellion once which worked quite well too)
