  1. Download 2018

    Welcome! Yeah that does seem slightly less of a confirmation. Still a weird thing for him to say. Quite a shock that they’re around and have had to play their own shows instead of an appearance at essentially Corey’s festival home. Maybe a sign that Copping doesn’t get as much say as in the past.
  2. Lineup 2018

    “Almost certain” is a stretch as it is still massively outside the normal capabilities but it’s now opened the door to it happening as it woulda been unlikely if it stayed in the centre or something. I agree but also I think getting him on at V would be clever. Many people would go to see him alone, and V needs people.
  3. All Points East Festival 2018

    I’m still of the thought that it is someone who hadn’t yet been signed up when all the headliners leaked six weeks ago. So someone who takes some convincing to come over (Jack White? Neil Young? The Strokes?) or a backup if those can’t be convinced (Massive Attack). It looks likely that Arcade Fire will be doing US fests early June and it would make sense for Radiohead to do the same. I’m guessing Nine Inch Nails aren’t available that early on June either or else they’d be an easy signing.
  4. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Aye but it seems to be a few times the size of what it started out as a few years ago, which is encouraging. Still though, I think in reality Scotland is some way off requiring a sizeable alternative music festival after Rock Ness was binned, Connect was binned, alternative acts at T played to crickets and people aren’t flocking to EF.
  5. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Same weekend as Neighbourhood as well. Does no one think much to Electric Fields then?
  6. Latitude 2018

    What the fuck?
  7. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    The most awful thing is what they did to the NME Awards tour - that’s now a series of Propaganda club nights with someone from some band behind the boards and a VO5 hair styling booth.
  8. Album of the Year 2017

    Nice. I hope you find some stuff on there that you like, I imagine you should as our tastes overlap pretty hard. And yeah I really respect what Flowers has done with Alex Cameron - I think he has just one writing credit on the album but I know he invited him out to Vegas to record and you can definitely hear his influence on other songs. It’s a cool thing to do for a practically unknown artist.
  9. Album of the Year 2017

    I'm probably the same. Might change over the years though; Lost in the Dream has like memories and feels attached that you only get with time and A Deeper Understanding hasn't had the same time to live yet.
  10. Album of the Year 2017

    Right I'm fully caught up - and I don't think the new N.E.R.D. or Eminem albums are gonna be worth a shit seeing as both feature Ed Sheeran - so the hammer comes crashing down on 2017. Albums: The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding Run the Jewels - Run the Jewels 3 Arcade Fire - Everything Now Foxygen - Hang Alvvays - Antisocialites Rapsody - Laila's Wisdom Death From Above - Outrage! Is Now The Horrors - V Alex Cameron - Forced Witness White Reaper - The World's Best American Band Songs Arcade Fire - Creature Comfort St. Vincent - Slow Disco The War on Drugs - Nothing to Find Paramore - Hard Times Alvvays - In Undertow The Horrors - Something to Remember Me By Michael Cera ft. Sharon Van Etten - Best I Can MGMT - Little Dark Age Sheer Mag - Suffer Me Craig Finn - God is in Chicago and finally I've done an extended top 50 albums topsters graphic in the spoiler if it's of interest to the nerds:
  11. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Thought they might be a bit hardcore for 6 Music even but yeah maybe I guess. I do think those are dates covered up (there are days missing from the list that are their actual days off) but the fact remains that it's April 28th.
  12. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Naw the BBC festivals are last weekend of May, if Metz were likely to be invited.
  13. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Yeah. £75 and fees. With travel on top of that though, it'd probably be cheaper to do a full weekend festival somewhere in Europe where Depeche Mode are.
  14. Castlefield Bowl

    The city should get some new sounds.
  15. Glastonbury 2020

    I think I recall reading his favourite band are The Kinks. Although I don’t think Glastonbury 2020 is gonna be the thing to finally reunite the brothers.
  16. Mad Cool 2018

    I just looked at two FiB 2017 posters before responding and didn’t see him so assumed he wasn’t there. Just went back and realised he was in the small writing. What a difference a year makes.
  17. Mad Cool 2018

    Ah you’re right. Must be someone currently without shows then. More likely separate days at Benicassim.
  18. Mad Cool 2018

    Only two names I can think of around at the time are Arcade Fire and Florence and the Machine but that’d work wouldn’t it?
  19. Latitude 2018

    There'd be an act on before but you're probably right anyway. I'm swapping her with Aurora on wonderwhy's behest.
  20. Latitude 2018

    Oh damn I didn't realise they'd stopped touring. That's a bad cock-up. Ah well.
  21. Latitude 2018

    did another poster for the hell of it. have a look and imagine your thoughts as if it were real but also remember it is not.
  22. Lineup 2018

    They used to get on okay without selling anything before Christmas. And loads of people go regardless of who's playing. I agree it'd be preferable for the festival but they're not in any danger if it doesn't come in time for Christmas.
  23. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I presumed they were doing quite well there because the support shows with Guns N' Roses and Foo Fighters and the Rolling Stones must add up but I didn't expect them to be fifth name on a festival bill where like Queens of the Stone Age are second down and Stone Temple Pilots fourth. I suppose it's quite nice really, even if they are pony.
  24. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I would think there would be a period of time between the support act finishing and the main act starting, yeah. Don't know owt about the shit torch though.
  25. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Order food and drinks to your seat in the interval. Can't do that at the Soup Kitchen.
