  1. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Interesting that they're around again next year! I thought that was it for a while. Gigs of the year for me: Radiohead - Manchester (Pyramid would be close second but I won't include both) The National - Manc 02 Apollo (saturday) Nick Cave - Notts Arena Weezer - Brum 02 Academy Flips - Notts Rock City
  2. All Points East Festival 2018

    Nope, you’re not the only one
  3. All Points East Festival 2018

    You lovely human being. That removes a lot of stress tomorrow morning! See you there
  4. All Points East Festival 2018

    How did you get one early? Sorry if that's a ridiculously dense question - i'm a bit out of the loop
  5. All Points East Festival 2018

    Unbelievable lineup. Trying for Friday tickets at the least. Latitude was my Glasto-fallow year festival untilt his news broke. I reckon a lot will be in the same boat.
  6. Pink Floyd?

    So desperate for this but we're really struggling to justify the expense right now. After Bon Iver tickets yesterday and the slew of gigs we've had in the past couple of months, dropping essentially £150 for two tickets is mental. I wish they went on sale next month or something. Hopefully they don't sell out immediately!
  7. Nick Cave

    Bloody phenomenal show in Notts last night. After seeing Radiohead x2, Flips, The National and Cave in the space of a few months I genuinely feel like I've seen my top 5 gigs ever in one go!
  8. LCD Soundsystem....

    I think it's tremendous. Better than This is Happening on first listen, not quite Sound of Silver good though. It's a really well constructed record. Flows very nicely and has great variety. Favourite record of the year so far, and I'm sure it'll grow on me even more. The National might top it though...

    Question: Assuming you don't already think Kid A is the best album, if it was initially released combined with some of Amnesiac, with something like the below track list, would it be unquestionably their best record? It would be impossible to separate it from OKC imo. Everything in its Right Place Kid A Pyramid Song The National Anthem I Might Be Wrong How to Disappear Completely Packt Like Sardines in a Crushed Tin Box Optimistic You and Whose Army? Idioteque Like Spinning Plates Motion Picture Soundtrack
  10. Festival cancelled due to mud

    Having been a regular at Y-Not for a number of years, I have to say the mud does look awful this year but I'm not sure if it looks substantial worse than what I've seen in the past. The whole organisation of the festivals seems to have been a disaster from the get go and the excessive number of thefts hasn't helped things. It's simply outgrown itself I think and they are trying to cram in too large a festival in to such an awkward site. As my most local festival it's a shame to see this happen, although I have to say the organisation and general vibe of the festival in 2015 was significantly worse than previous years and it seems to have slid more downhill.
  11. Chester Bennington

    Tragic news. I'm sure most people between the ages of 25-35 grew up with Linkin Park to some extent. Rubbish.
  12. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I thought the Manchester show was the best the whole band has sounded on this tour. Really impressive stuff. Gutted they didn't play Spinning Plates though!
  13. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Fuck off. As if they got this for a first encore: No Surprises Nude Like Spinning Plates Lotus Flower Paranoid Android Reckoner That's ridiculous.

    Mexican Tele would do the job surely? I've currently got a Modern Player Plus and it's a beast of a guitar. My rule is to only have three guitars so as much as I love it, trading it up for that Strat is seriously tempting!
  15. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I'm sure you've all seen it by now but Ed's signature Strat is absolutely gorgeous. Tempted to chop my telecaster against it.
