  5. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Bonjour mes amis. Been taking a break from t'interwebs a bit so not been on much. Shite news Guy, hope you're all doing OK. Sad time dude, oldest friend's dad has been hit with stage 4 as well. Getting myself back on the gig horse, just booked tickets for Dub Pistols, Rhythm of the 90s and Andrew WK so got all those to look forward to Much love x
  6. Pink Floyd - Their Mortal Remains

    I found the information and video pieces far more interesting than the kit itself, I found that worth it tbh. Some of the videos on how the sound developed and the recording process was really interesting.
  7. Acts you don't "get"

  8. 2017 New Music Thread

    Having resisted the urge to listen to the pre-releases I sat through the War on Drugs album yesterday. Might well be more of the same, but dear God I just love the sound they make. Glorious stuff.

    He shoots, he scores! Great result Dizzy
  10. Acts you don't "get"

    Live at least, Future Islands. Really enjoyed listening to their stuff ahead of Glasto but lasted about 20 minutes in JP. Just didn't click for me at all live. Maybe my head wasn't in the right place but......no.
  11. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Ah, hope you're doing OK girl. Nowt bad for me but similar, just got lots happening and not a huge amount of time to get on eFests. Hope everyone's doing OK. On a light-hearted note I'm off to Brighton later with Mrs Q to watch a screening of the new documentary on social housing. We know how to live...
  12. 2019 Headliners

    The never-ending quandary over headliners. Big well-known established band - too predictable Newer band currently ruling the world - not enough back catalogue Established band with high quality but not chart-troubling - won't pull a crowd Band with guitars - why do we always have a guitar band? Rap / hip hop / grime act - not right for Glastonbury / Kanye didn't work Popular band smashing the charts - too mainstream / bland / poppy Previous headliner guaranteed to put on a show - safe option

    Got round to new Cribs album today. It's not bad, but doesn't really grab me. I stand by my comments Lawn

    I quite liked you at the meet. How wrong. Clearly either I was inebriated then or you're inebriated now. Either way, this is madness. I'm out.
  16. Festival cancelled due to mud

    Was excited to see her on the bill at Benicassim this year. I left sorely disappointed. Maybe an off night.

    New Songhoy Blues album makes for pleasant if not groundbreaking listening. If you liked the first one chances are that you'll like this one. After their Park set this year I'm a bit biased. They were just having so much fun I can't listen to anything of theirs without grinning

    Pretty sure that you're not equating the Cribs' with REM Lawn, that would be insane. You're not, right?

    Join the lengthy and ever growing queue of people who want to let me know of their disppointment in me Stu. My mum's got first dibs and it stretches out from there.

    New Allergies album is more of the same, which works for me because the same is damn fine! Nothing groundbreaking from their first effort, but it's good listening. And how on earth have I made it through the last 5 years or so without coming across Warm Digits until now? Wireless World is cracking, suspect I'll be catching them in Brighton in a few weeks. New Lana Del Ray still doesn't quite click with me. It sounds good, but just blends into itself a bit. More listening needed, but it's not pulling me back for another go.

    New Manchester Orchestra album is really rather good. Never listened to them before, will be on play again this week. Rex Brown's first solo effort is....ok. Got that southern groove to it that you'd expect from Pantera, but nowhere near as heavy. Listenable but just a bit dull. New Allergies album next...

    Aye. The crowd singing We Are Your Friends was a lovely bit

    Sit in the middle lane at all times. For no other reason than there's a chance that @fatyeti24 might be behind you and it'll really wind him up.
  24. Chester Bennington

    True, and well worded in the situation. As I've got older I've always found that if I sing along in the car to Linkin Park it's a been a wee bit tongue in cheek, and Chester's passing aside I think you're right about the general perception of them and where they'd stand at Glastonbury. However, tongue in cheek or not, I still sing along just as loudly as I did when I was 20, and I will continue to do so! So sad the more I think about it. To be mid-tour, with all the struggles he'd previously overcome, the poor bastard must have just been feeling so incredibly low. Dreadful stuff.

    With any of the cheese dishes it depends on the restaurant. Some of them have really over-adapted it for Western tastes, and use cheddar and all sorts to make a stupidly creamy dish. But done properly, with big chunks of paneer and none of the melted crap, they're amazing. Hungry now
