  3. All Points East Festival 2018

    Got Friday/Sunday tickets for this. Hopefully the first of a few smaller festivals next year. Also considering just spending a week catching up with London based mates and going to The National the following Saturday. My bank balance needs your prayers
  4. Acts you don't "get"

    Biffy Clyro. Don't believe the press, everyone in Scotland hates them too.
  5. One month on...

    Took me two months to come back to my favourite page on the internet. Fair to say this one had a big impact on me.
  6. Acts you don't "get"

    London Grammar. Convinced its a nation-wide practical joke at my expense that people (who normally have good taste) genuinely like them
  7. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    1. In Rainbows 2. OK Computer 3. Kid A 4. The Bends 5. A Moon Shaped Pool 6. Hail to the Thief 7. The King of Limbs 8. Amnesiac 9. Pablo Honey So.... have I missed much?
  8. 2019 Headliners

    Back in time for Nutbush, here wi!
  9. The XX

    I'm not quite there yet, but I could see myself coming to that conclusion too. Listened to it on vinyl last night for the first time and the whole Side A is pretty much perfect
  10. The XX

    I thought they were brilliant. I'm a fan but I had concerns going into it. Tough spot on the Pyramid for a band that probably, on paper, looked like they'd struggle in that environment. But they smashed it. Great performances, great chemistry on stage, good interaction with the crowd, they looked like they were loving every moment and it was infectious. Romy's voice was unbelievable, delivery on Permformance was spine tingling. Jamie's production makes a huge difference to their live performance, even songs like Angels you could almost dance to. Only minor complaint would be that I'd have liked to have heard A Violent Noise as it's my favourite song on the new album, but aside from that the set list ticked most of the boxes. As a quick aside on the latest album: I've been listening to it again after having a break for a few months and I absolutely love it. Brave For You is about the only track I can't get on board with. As a record it's streets ahead of Coexist and I'm increasingly of a mind that it's up there with their debut.
  11. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    And beard-stroking, don't forget that.
  12. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Difficult to predict Friday's set. Please play Reckoner.
  13. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Oh good lord.
  14. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Trolling us good and proper.

    AOTYSF; 1. Semper Femina - Laura Marling 2. RTJ III - Run the Jewels 3. I See You - The xx 4. Prisoner - Ryan Adams 5. DAMN. - Kendrick Lamar 6. Pure Comedy - Father John Misty 7. Love In The 4th Dimension - The Big Moon 8. Crack Up - Fleet Foxes 9. Big Fish Theory - Vince Staples 10. How Did We Get So Dark - Royal Blood There's loads still to come this year I'm looking forward to but it's going to have to be something special to knock Semper Femina off the top spot. I absolutely bloody love it (bought it on vinyl today actually).
