  1. Last night i watched Jools Holland........... and

    Not sure which song you mean but he barely seemed present, you’re right. Didn’t think much to him nor Annie, and Plant’s new songs are a bit crap. Was a better show this week but particularly vv impressed with Wolf Alice and the boys. Songs off the new album sound decent live.
  2. 2019 Headliners

    Wth is that post? What does Emily ‘screwing with the campsites’ have to do with Morrissey’s bigoted ass?
  3. Lineup 2018

    I think they will miss him because FR will book him to headline Wireless. If we’re righr in predicting Kendrick to headline R+L they’ll really need headliners there. Also mate at least you don’t like Pierce the Veil. It’s all good.
  4. Lineup 2018

    That's a good point. I suppose it remains to be seen if they can build on that in the US or if they've already just about reached the entire target audience over there, but yeah they could maintain them over here.
  5. Lineup 2018

    But with Download and Reading and Leeds being under the same company, it was essentially FR that shafted them on those slots. I'm sure if they wanted them to do Download, they wouldn't offer the other option. I think you're spot on there. I can essentially see the new album being their Opposites. It'll be a big seller because the last two albums were and people wanna check it out, but failing to provide anything worth sticking around for will start an irreversible slope from then on.
  6. Download 2018

    How not to launch in another country...
  7. British Summer Time 2018

    With the dude saying the headliners bar one were underwhelming, I'd be surprised if one of the five wasn't Kasabian. They must be about 50-50 between IOW and BST and are hella underwhelming as a headliner for any festival going forwards.
  8. 2017 New Music Thread

    Yeah it dawned on me that they must be something in Australia when I heard all the orchestral backing they had up and down the album. That doesn't come cheap for an indie rock band on their second LP. I am envisioning their recent tour was probably mostly be a gathering of the city's Antipodes. But yeah hopefully they can carry it off here cos they're not a style Britain is averse to and would translate well at some festies.
  9. 2017 New Music Thread

    This is brill btw. Bloated but they’ve gone for the huge second album and it works. How was the gig?
  10. 2017 New Music Thread

    ooo that Fever Ray tune's a dazzler. New album has been a long time coming. That's another who one who's bound to be touring in summer for the only time in ages and Glastonbury is slacking off for a year!! Came in to extol the virtues of Louisiana glamster Kyle Craft's new covers album. All the songs were written by women which sounds like a Ryan Adams idea, I know, but it's a smashing selection of tunes and he does enough of a twist on the originals - I first listened without checking the tracklist and had a whale of a time. If yer not familiar with Craft then he's been described as Bob Dylan via Ezra Furman and had an excellent album out last year.
  11. I dunno. They have one Ally Pally date not sold out, whereas Flume sold it out pretty quickly as a vaguely comparable 'dance' headliner, and I'd be lying if I said I thought they were bigger than Skrillex and deadmau5 when they headlined the tent. I guess people might just be cooling on them.
  12. Me neither to be honest, Future's a weird fit for R+L - he's pretty big but I bet he'd be terrible on the main stage. Travis Scott is the only one I can think of that would probably be best suited to the slot but some others might come to the fore later on. Chainsmokers are probably the right size to headline NME imo if it's to be a dance act.
  13. Lineup 2018

    Nah that's way too far. Slipknot couldn't headline Glastonbury to tens of thousands familiar with their work. However if there's any metal band still going (excluding Linkin Park cos dunno if they count or what's gonna happen to them) that has a chance of joining that bracket it's Slipknot.
  14. Maybe but I don't think it put him on the map any more than the likes of Collard Greens and Man of the Year did previously. Either way, I don't quite think they'd rush to book him for a slot like that though, with trap and grime a bit more attractive for placings like that.
  15. Stop killing me with those Kendrick clashes boi. I don’t think Schoolboy Q is about to headline NME personally, as good as that would be. His stature hasn’t really changed that much since playing middle of the bill in ‘14.
  16. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Guess if they were the announcement would come after Simple Things this weekend.
  17. Lineup 2018

    Foo Fighters will always be more likely for Reading, given that’s the fest where they turn the biggest profit and it’s the most suitable for Foos fans. Plus I don’t think it’s good for Foos to play such niche festivals either. Re: Slipknot, I think they’re absolutely gonna headline Reading one day as they’re only getting bigger and more legendary. It’s just that they’re such a safe headliner for Download and they have a bond with the place so they’re gonna play that every tour.
  18. Field Day 2018

    Would be interesting and I think I’d be more inclined to go if it meant avoiding a late Megabus or a hotel stay, but it’s probably just a random picture of a dude in a sleeping bag init.
  19. Lineup 2018

    Probably something to read into the Fighters of Foo not adding any more UK dates despite having sold their shows out.
  20. Field Day 2018

    Unless I’m reading too far into it, it seems like nuff change is going on. “Weekend of”, “upping sticks” with no specific venue and a pic of a dude in a sleeping bag although I don’t think I’ve heard of camping fests in London so I don’t really see much in that.
  21. Lineup 2018

    If you wanna do a fresh prediction erry day slap it in here so we have space to discuss other shit.
  22. Primavera 2018

    New MGMT track is pretty wicked. Been a hot minute since they were at PS so I hope they're playing, on the off-chance that I'm in attendance.
  23. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Sounds great. Back on form. Does feel weird hearing the studio cut of Crumbling Castle and it finally being attached to an album. It’s a little bit like Radiohead with True Love Waits, except Gizz didn’t fuck theirs up. Half expecting it not to be on the next album but the one after now.
  24. Primavera 2018

    In your defence, they announced Arcade Fire in November 2013 and Ride and The Strokes in November 2014.
