  1. 2018 New Music

    They were immensely good fun in the Crow's Nest last year, and seem to be on just about every festival bill this summer.
  2. 2018 New Music

    Yes! I've only just discovered this wonderful news. The much quieter but equally superb Bill Callahan's now on there too. Still no Will Oldham though.
  3. 2018 New Music

    Haha quite! I liked it straight off, having read mixed reviews. It actually brought to mind Electric Ladyland - Hendrix's production innovations are sometimes credited with leading, eventually, to hip-hop, and here's Jack playing blues-rock guitar but experimenting with musicians honed on hip-hop. (Don't get me wrong - it's obviously not fit to tie EL's laces.)
  4. 2018 New Music

    Sums up my thoughts too. It's fun to hear him mixing it up, even if it doesn't all come off.
  5. All Points East Festival 2018

    Had a look, couldn't find it. There wasn't much of interest beyond what I've mentioned.
  6. All Points East Festival 2018

    Interview with the AEG dude organising the festival (and BST), Jim King, in yesterday's Standard. He says still more acts to announce (which I guess we knew) including "a secret stage that we have kept quiet somehow, but all will be revealed soon."
  7. 2018 New Music

    Welcome news! Natalie Prass too. Two great female voices back within two days.
  8. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Thought they were great myself. Funny to see such a relatively young band suddenly have such a big back catalogue to explore. Allows them to mix it up a lot more than previously, while still having the big numbers from Nonagon and Mind Fuzz (they should have played more from the latter). Never been the biggest FMB fan myself but thought the stuff from that was fantastic. The Sister Ray interval was a nice touch - a shame they had to cut off the last 2 minutes!
  9. 2018 - What it might have looked like

    This whole “just think what we could have had!” is just torture. Stop it for all our sakes!!
  10. Rolling Stones

    I've heard one or more dates at the Emirates (Arsenal) has also been discussed. It's not happening there, but very likely to be elsewhere in London. I note Dental suggests Twickenham, which would make sense.
  11. 2018 New Music

    Agreed! Fantastic set. On the basis of that, the new one may not be as accessible as the last, a little more difficult, but still marvellous. Encore featured covers of Thunder Road & Hounds of Love!
  12. 2018 New Music

    On first listen to the new tracks I thought 'meh' too. But having heard them a few times now they are growing fast, and I reckon they could work just fine as part of a new album. Or maybe I'm just trying to convince myself as I'm seeing him at the Lexington tonight...
  13. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Debating this or Boomtown next year, leaning towards this now that it's on the mainline and in August, although the prospect of a knackered site from the previous weekend is a concern. Anyone do both last year and care to share thoughts?
  14. Boomtown 2018

    Hmm, debating this or Besti next year. Leaning towards the latter tbh, and will enjoy the luxury of considering the lineup before shelling out. Anyone do both last year and care to share thoughts?
  15. All Points East Festival 2018

    Absolutely, any saving is worth having, and the level of fees is getting ridiculous. But the difference between £7.40 and £6 doesn't seem like something worth risking missing a ticket for, as the poster above seemed to be suggesting.
