  1. Queens of the Stone Age

    One foot in the gutter, one in the crowd.
  2. 2018 New Music

    Fresh MGMT. Dunno what I think of it really, needs more listens. http://vevo.ly/eBVySp
  3. YNOT Festival 2018

    Unless the lineup is completely unmissable for you (which is pretty unlikely) then go somewhere else.
  4. 2019 festival

    If they release an album without Serj then hopefully it's as Scars On Broadway again (obviously with Shavo added). They had some cool songs tbf but it's not SOAD without Serj and I don't think they should use the name.
  5. 2018 New Music

    MGMT far and away the album I'm most excited for. New teaser they've posted just now sounds a bit odd mind but not in a bad way. Interpol played a new song when I saw them in September and it was great. It'll be good to have them back. AM wasn't up to the level of the previous two albums but I absolutely loved Everything You've Come To Expect so I still believe in Alex Turner. New Arctics will be great. Chvrches, Brian Fallon, Spector, Parquet Courts, The Voidz, Gengahr, Black Peaks, Foals and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are all certainties or near certainties for new albums which is cool. I like to think we can expect new stuff from Drenge, Grimes, James Blake, Metronomy, Tame Impala and The 1975 too but they're not quite as definite.
  6. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    They did it this summer just gone for every day except The Killers and Phil Collins I believe. 100% for Tom Petty and Kings of Leon at least.
  7. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Setlists were so good. They were my 15th, 16th and 17th times the ones I went to and I got loads of songs for the first time or first time in ages too. That lineup is cool as fuck. I said I'd never go back to BST after going this year and thinking the vibe was crap but man if this goes buy one get one free I'm there.
  8. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Never really listened to Alvvays before, but checked out both their albums properly tonight and I'm all over that Manchester date in February. Anyone else seeing them? Sacked off The Cribs in Leeds in a couple of weeks cos it's too inconvenient but now doing 3 Manchester dates over the next 4 days, missing their Saturday gig cos I'm seeing Hurts. So insanely excited after seeing they played 55 different songs during the Glasgow residency including all sorts of rarities.
  9. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    There's info here saying about selling spares on Twickets so you're all good.
  10. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Brilliant day for me. It'll be a lot less tempting if Chvrches and Franz Ferdinand get added to the Bilbao BBK lineup though so will leave it for now.
  11. Tramlines 2018

    Tickets for this are currently £30 for 3 days is that right? And one day could be Arctics...? Seems too good to be true.
  12. Lineup 2018

    Unless he's not available then any trio that doesn't involve Kendrick would be stupid of the organisers imo. I love Arcade Fire, possibly more than Kendrick, but he absolutely has to be booked over them.
  13. Album of the Year 2017

    It's two I think, Runnin Outta Luck and Politics Of Love. Probably my two favourites but there are loads of great songs, Candy May is another one up there. Just The Hacienda I'm not overly fussed on. He name-dropped Alex Cameron in pretty much every interview when promoting Wonderful Wonderful too. And got him a slot at Hyde Park as well as all the tour support slots here and in America. I know I definitely wouldn't know who he was if not for The Killers links so he's really been given a boost. I'm just looking it up now actually cos I knew Alex Cameron worked on The Killers' stuff too and he has 5 writing credits on the new album. I knew he'd helped with the lyrics on Run For Cover but that's a big effort and much more of an input than I was aware of. Dave Keuning (who wrote the Mr Brightside riff) has one writing credit.
  14. Album of the Year 2017

    Oh damn I forgot Alex Cameron. That's a top 10 for sure. I love Brandon Flowers' touches on there and the duet with Angel Olsen is magic. Going to see him again tomorrow after enjoying him when he supported The Killers. I'm gonna listen to your top 50 over the next god knows how long cos you seem to listen to everything and I like everything I know here, except A Deeper Understanding which I haven't really got into as of yet but it probably just needs another listen or two.
