  1. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Pre-ordered black through Heavenly this morning. Let's hope they decide to deliver this one! Can't wait to get this on later. Lots of people seem pretty positive on it.
  2. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    King Gizzard has been released! Already sold out with Heavenly though - any idea where I might be able to pre-order the vinyl? Can only seem to find black, which is very un-King Gizz.
  3. Electronica/Dance

    Yeah, superb stuff. Dude has one hell of a voice. Real highlight.
  4. Maccabees

    Looks to be a pretty even split between the albums. Anybody have any idea of the set times? I'm guessing they'll be the same for all three nights, but I can't see anything on Twitter.
  5. Maccabees

    I'll be there on Saturday too. Will be emotional for sure!
  6. John Peel crowds

    Yeah it was superb there this year. The good weather helped no doubt in that people where there for the bands, not just to get out the rain. Phoenix, Real Estate and King Gizz were the ones I saw in there, and they were all great. I much prefer this new(er) location.
  7. Lovebullets Police Sunday

    Ah what a shame, always love it around Glade. Didn't spend too much time there this year (other than a brief dance in the Spaceport), but hope the atmosphere didn't suffer. Does Elrow attract idiots or something? Can't say I know much about it really.
  8. Clash Decisions

    Moonlandingz v British Sea Power - went for Moonlandingz, and had a great time. No doubt BSP would have been good, but I've already seen them on this tour. BadBadNotGood v Run The Jewels/Jezza - saw RTJ, again, and had a good time. If it wasn't for Jezza I might have skipped it, but I'm glad I got to see them (DISCLAIMER - I'm no massive fan of JC, but was keen to see him speak). I just hope BadBadNotGood do some UK dates soon, although it looks like I've missed my chance. Toots v King Gizz's WG set - yup, fucked this up. At least I saw Gizz on Sunday. Phoenix v The Jacksons - went for Phoenix, who took a bloody age to set up and came on pretty late. They were good though, despite me not getting around to listening to the new record yet. Sure The Jacksons would have been good though. There were loads more, but these were the big ones.
  9. The Avalanches

    Pretty good, although I could have done without one or two of the lengthy free-jazz interludes. Beautiful when it all came back together though. His voice and dress-sense were both great too. I was worried I was going to have to leave Moonlandingz early for it, which would have been the wrong decision - Moonlandingz were ideal - possibly the best thing I saw on Sat.
  10. The Avalanches

    Yeah totally. Hot 8, Justice, Thundercat were all rammed when I was there (Toots would have been as well). Can't talk about the rest of the bands on, but with the line up being so good they must have had more people down there than normal.
  11. Download full sets from iplayer

    I'm after just the audio (preferably broken into files per track) of the Radiohead set. If anyone comes across this would they please drop the link in here? The LCD Soundsystem from last year still gets a lot of plays! Ta!
  12. The Avalanches

    I thought they were fine, but no better than that. It's always tricky when you have to play from a backing track/DJ, but there were quite a few times when I was looking at the guitarist and wondering what he was doing, because I could hardly hear it in the mix. You could see they were all giving it loads of energy, but it was just missing something for me. Either it was the sound, or a bit more of a 'live' element to the instrumentals. Looking at setlist.fm, it seems they've played the same exact set at every festival and gig for quite a while now, so I'm guessing everything is already queued up with little room for improvisation. Solid festival gig, but not the best of the weekend.
  13. Confirmed secret sets 2017

    Gutted I missed Toots, especially after waiting nearly an hour on Saturday for him. Was there any sort of announcement in advance?
  14. The National

    Missed the start because of Avalanches, but was bloody glorious when I got there. Just turned it on now to see what we missed in the first half. So stoked for the gig in Manchester and new album now.
  15. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    So good. Easily the best thing I've seen at the festival since The Stones, and it might have been even better than that. Just watched it back and I need that in my life. Does anyone have/know where I can get the audio from the set?
