  1. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Fantastic! Can't fault Sun in your Eyes nor Foreground and I've heard On a Neck... be mentioned so I'll be happy I think.
  2. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Was it good? I was out of the country for their UK shows so I'm going to Brussels this weekend to see them. I need them to be worth that time, money and effort (quite confident they will be their last tour in Manchester was stunning and I love the new album).
  3. LCD Soundsystem....

    Field day might just work? I'll be going to at least one festival next year with them on the bill. I just hope it's not Boomtown (although I don't see them fitting in there).
  4. LCD Soundsystem....

    I've spent all afternoon trying to justify coming down to London for the night just to catch them again. Currently my bank account and reason are winning but it could still swing as they were truly mind-blowing last week.
  5. LCD Soundsystem....

    No idea. I'm just going off a few forums where everyone kind of suggested that whilst there were dogs there they are there to: i) Make the WHP seem compliant with whatever licensing laws clubs now have to follow ii) Make punters scared and that the reaction (rather than the dog's nose) is the barometer on whether they should be searched. (This seems to be based on fact they're seemingly kept aside and people aren't made to pass them to get in.) In all honesty though I've genuinely no idea. I'm unlikely to be carrying anything this weekend but if I am I don't think I'll be too worried based on what I've heard. I'm sure all official sources would denounce this but I get the impression that everyone just plays the game.
  6. LCD Soundsystem....

    Is fiver a can the damage there? What I've read elsewhere suggests that they're more for show than anything. Is that not the case?
  7. LCD Soundsystem....

    It's slowly growing on me. As already mentioned it definitely lacks the euphoria tracks of the middle 2 albums. Sad to read in that interview that it's unlikely that 'how do you sleep?' will be played before the end of the year. Not only is it an absolute banger but the end would merge perfectly into the start of Someone Great. Can't wait for Manchester though.
  8. Queens of the Stone Age

    Couldn't agree more. Absolute tunes.
  9. Kendrick Lamar

    Definitely will be silly expensive :/ (and vacuous arenas.)

  11. Overheard funnies

    'Prison pocket' was the chosen term for it in our camp. Thankfully none of us needed to use it this year. 3 hours in the prison pocket sounds pretty bleak :/
  12. The best place to **** was ****

    3 friends saw it happen in the long drops near West Holts. Broad daylight too. Can't think of much worse I'd rather just have it on the grass in front of people than in front of people in that hellhole.
  13. Celebrate grime at Glastonbury

    It is over 15 years old, to be fair. I take your point though the past few years it has exploded.
  14. What made you smile ?

    That's nice I completely get the new feeling of the festival but for me it was massively tainted even with the innocence of not knowing any better. I definitely appreciated the festival far more the following year. (I'm also massively bitter at my 16 year old self choosing to watch Kasabian - Arctic Monkeys instead of Arcade Fire - Bjork (who went on to be two of my favourite artists)). Thankfully I missed 2016. I'd found 15 massively draining (not due to the weather just in general) and if I'd have been to 16 then I don't think I'd have been this year... maybe even ever again.
  15. Celebrate grime at Glastonbury

    Didn't catch any of the Grime acts this year and bar Shut up and Man Don't Care I can't say I know too much about this wave of Grime (I loved Boy in da Corner) but I can only echo the Stormzy sentiment. There's something about his presence in clips which is special especially in the one below which I only found a few days back. I'm massively impressed that he smashed a gig last year in the rain and in Denmark (with non-native speakers who are well into it.). Fair play to him and I'll make a point of catching his set online and listening to his album.
