  1. Glasto chat

    By chance, we stopped the Monday night at the Prestleigh Arms prior to the festival, and they appeared alongside us. Bit full of themselves....
  2. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Was going to give them a rest, but this thread has convinced me to get both Gumboot Soup & Polygondwanaland, love them both! Can't even begin to devise a 2017 best of, but I'd have to include a couple of songs from each of these...
  3. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Very happy to be returning to Bearded Theory, for the sixth time, the addition last week of Robert Plant added to my excitement. As ever, working the Ramsbottom Head for the Hills Festival too. And on the Africa theme, heading off the day after ticket day (Presuming I have the date right), two weeks around Cape Town and the Western Cape, and then a National Geographic tour through Zimbabwe and Botswana.
  4. Talking Heads

    Will have to go to the Manchester Apollo show. Just checked, last time I saw him was the Look Into the Eyeball tour, 2001, in a small theatre in Toronto.
  5. Talking Heads

    I said hello to them after the gig....did my usual embarrassing starstruck fan idiocy...
  6. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Have tickets for Thee Oh Sees, First Aid Kit, Manic Street Preachers, Lady GaGa, Glen Tilbrook, The Mavericks, Courtney Marie Andrews, and Frank Ferdinand, and festivals just Bearded Theory and Head for the Hills for me this year. Still tempted to go again to King Gizzard....
  7. Album of the Year 2017

    Prematurely did my list some time ago, would in retrospect certainly have included U2 Songs of Experience, highly surprised how much I am enjoying it. Less bombast, more personal, all 12 songs quality.
  8. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I’m looking forward to the HoloGram Parsons tour.
  9. Album of the Year 2017

    Just so happens my list is dominated by Americana and Country this year: 1. Courtney Marie Andrews - Honest Life 2. Buckingham McVie 3. Margo Price - All American Made 4. Gillian Welch - Boots #1 5. Jason Isbell - Nashville Sound 6. Holly McVae - Golden Eagle 7. Robert Plant - Carry Fire 8. Neil Young - Hitchhiker 9. Justin Adams - Ribbons 10. Arcade Fire - Everything Now
  10. Glastonbury Festival International Airport

    Does this mean we're getting Led Zeppelin at last??
  11. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Hope I can get to see David Byrne, saw him last in 2001. I was interested to see a pre-sale this week for Fat Freddys Drop at the Manchester Academy, a bad I’ve always wanted to see, but then I see it’s for a gig in November 2018, seems ridiculous to pay 12 months in advance....
  12. Designing new products to make the festival experience even better!

    Hope this has the desired affect.
  13. Wheres my gold gone :-(

    Hi Neil, please see my direct message on this topic from the other day, thanks!
  14. Old Music Thread

    I'm amazed they are still going!! Not heard of them for ages.
  15. Old Music Thread

    Loving it...saw him recently at the Manchester Academy, his new music is just as good as the older stuff, here's a snippet of the latest, Ruin, I took at the gig:
