  1. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Bill Joel is exclusively doing Old Trafford in the UK so he’s out. Would otherwise be a decent shout. Think yr more likely to see David Gray than David Byrne at IOW.
  2. Lineup 2018

    Even disregarding their clout with R+L goers nowadays; I don’t see why Pixies will be back in Europe again next summer. That’d be almost two years since the last album and they aren’t a prolific touring band. It is curious that they’ve shared a couple of Reading posters but I think they might just really dig those line ups lol.
  3. Nine Inch Nails

    We’d have had them all and more probably. David Byrne! Too many clashes so it’s just as well it got sacked off.
  4. Lineup 2018

    Yeah I had a look last week (no idea why) and none of their shows had sold out standing and the Liverpool leg had been downgraded from the arena. Saying that, I don’t think anyone was predicting they’d receive push up the line up and it woulda likely been a 3rd/4th main or NME headline, which is still fair.
  5. Lineup 2018

    I should hope so by this point.
  6. Yeah for something different, you managed to get similar crop as everyone else. But that's probably to be expected when everyone approves certain acts to play and rejects the others. Third down seems too high for Don Broco really. That's the only opinion I can offer.
  7. 2017 New Music Thread

    Did you read the rest of the lyrics to the song? Cos obviously that bit on its own sounds stupid but the stuff about not punishing the people for the state's actions seems ok. Anyway, I pretty much just listened to the album once just to get an opinion on the album untarnished by the public persona and I think it did come across a lot better than current reviews are giving him credit for. I won't be buying his albums or tickets or Morrissey-branded tiki torches. I certainly think he is losing a lot of favour at the moment and is working on destroying The Smiths' legacy so I don't think there's any worry of him being granted a free pass - his ideals very much come across as a sad old man losing his grip on reality and his dogwhistles are falling on deaf ears. Also, going back to the album, I thought it was funny how what'd probably normally be seen as a good album has been panned because of the public persona which is the polar opposite of that Liam Gallagher record.

    Right? "Stop forcing ideas on kids" says the person adding an agenda to a picture of a kid holding up a picture that they've drawn. It fucking beggars belief.
  9. Predictions for 2018

    Think that was Bestival. Tho even Bestival seems small for the Just Invernon boys now. Can imagine he's too big for this.
  10. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    It's loads of money compared to comedians performing in small theatres and clubs, but they don't have live specials on BBC One. Same for arena acts innit, many of the modest earners in the crowd offset the high prices by not going to another gig for another couple of years.

    I thought it was a good album personally. I was surprised at how little he came across as an arse and the music was a level above anything for at least a decade. Sadly he looks to have lost the plot elsewhere. He's really plumbing new depths with victim-blaming the Weinstein and Spacey accusers. Pretty much Katie Hopkins with a knack for clever lyrics at this point.
  12. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Do you think Michael McIntyre fans are all like "yeah he was good but there wasn't much of an intimate atmosphere or large-scale spectacle"? They want to see the bloke off telly, probably even want to hear the same jokes as he told on telly. Arenas allow the performer to entertain large numbers with the last amount of shows.
  13. Lineup 2018

    TRNSMT have booked Ratt?
  14. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Really digging it too. I think they've excelled on a lot of ideas they've had throughout their work here. The middle-eastern, the spoken word, the jazz, the chanting, the rawk, it's all here and it's good gizzy. Also chucking in some John Carpenter synths - I hope thatsa future Gizz leaning. Gonna burn a CD for the hell of it. Might do a few for Christmas presents.
  15. Lineup 2018

    This is absolutely true. As good as they are, they're a basic next step option for teenagers after the big rock bands like Foo Fighters and Muse - that's how I got into them, same with all the fans that I know and I imagine many people on here did too. And I think that's accelerated over the years as they've become more of a sacred cow in the indie world. Additionally I doubt people would just walk off distressed because they haven't played a Bends track for however long. Maybe those songs and ones of OK Computer and obviously Creep are still the most listened to among a large section but it doesn't mean the later stuff goes untouched.
