  1. LCD Soundsystem....

    Took myself to see Everything Everything at the Apollo on Friday, on a last minute decision. As I was on my own and free to move about, I gave myself a side mission of figuring out where's best for sound. Nearish the front, anywhere between the two main speaker stacks sounded alright to me. Bit echoey, but that will suit some LCD stuff. And Someone Great was played when EE went off stage.
  2. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    The Hebden Bridge show was terrific! All the guys I spoke to from the band were lovely as well. Jason Galea who does all their artwork drew me a crocodile. We got tickets for the matinee show with Lomond Campbell and Halo Maud too, spent the whole day in that lovely little town. A beautiful time was had. I also met one of the folks who runs the Crows Nest at Glastonbury, he welcomed me into the place 2 years ago and really kicked off that year's festival for me. Great to see him again. Photes & Vids
  3. Glastonbury Sound Systems from the mid-1990's

  5. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Got two tickets for this somehow. Anyone else?
  6. Forrest Gump II?

    And 15 months later, with a stop-off in England in the middle, our Robla has run clear to the ocean 4 times! Incredible!!! Wish I'd have seen you at Glastonbury feller!
  7. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Ended up going to my 7th, 8th and 9th Cribs gigs fro Friday to Sunday! They're perfect in small venues like Gorilla. They played 47 different song over those 3 shows, 16 of which I'd never heard before!. To Jackson, Hari Kari, Jaded Youth, Baby Don't Sweat, Cheat On Me in particular were glorious! What a band.

    Let me know if you hear about any spare tickets for that please!
  9. LCD Soundsystem....

    Probably by the end of the year JM said!
  10. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Fingers crossed! I saw them at Belgrave in Leeds for the album release, was an incredible show. They played Partisan as promised after we chatted about it at Jumbo Records earlier in the day too, got a nice buzz from that. I thought I'd never get to see them in such a little venue again, then they announced the December shows the very next day. Watch out on Friday btw, it'll be a 10pm curfew.

    How Do You Sleep? is gonna sound massive at the Apollo.
  12. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Going to the first night of The Cribs' residency at Manchester Gorilla next week, I foresee myself ending up at least one of the others! Really hoping I can get a pair of tickets to Night 4 or 5 at the Brudenell in Leeds too. They've rehearsed their entire back catalogue apparently, so hoping for some good setlists. Anyone else going along to one of these?

    I think they might end up playing Parklife rather than Castlefield Bowl. That would be a shame.
  14. Counting down the memories

    This didn't kick off as I'd hoped! But as we have a *cry cry cry* RATHER large gap til our next festival, it's as good a time as any to recall specific Glastonburys from yesteryear. Challenge yourself to recall memories from each particular one you've been to, starting as far back as you go! x
  15. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Surprisingly naive from yer man Skinner. No ticket for me, but I'll find my way in come April. Just realised his DJ set at the White Hotel Salford is straight after night 1 of The Cribs residency at Gorilla, which I have tickets for. That is set to be an interesting night!
