  1. Kanye west confirmed

    To mark the anniversary I commissioned this portrait of him
  2. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    No March of the Black Queen
  3. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    It's vaguely tied in to the 40th anniversary if News of the World, innit. Lack of songs by John 'Deaky' Deacon isnt really a massive shocker. FWIW when I saw them a couple of years back they started off with One Vision.
  4. Arcade Fire

    Without even a cinematic equivalent of Head to their name.
  5. Arcade Fire

    Mind Arcade Fire? Whatever happened to them...? Just shows you. One day you're big enough to headline Glastonbury, next day you're completely forgotten about.
  6. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    aka The Treble of Tripe
  7. Deep Cut Sets and Old Gold

    Was just reflecting that in space of a few years recently at the G I've managed to see Yoko Ono, Burt Bacharach, Ronnie Spector, Dawn Penn, Sergio Mendes, Cerrone, Dr John, Bobby Womack, Marcus Valle and The Congos. And in the same timeframe I've conspired to miss Mavis Staples, Ernest Ranglin, The Zombies, Duane Eddy and more. Holy balls. Crate-digger's Delight. What a place. It's given us all so much.

    And the rest of them are on LinkedIn in the Seeking Opportunities section.
  9. Future "Legends"

    If you count Page & Plant then I'd guess they were in their mid forties when they did it.

  11. Deep Cut Sets and Old Gold

    I like his t-shirt
  12. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Despite them playing on the same bill, there have been a couple of pops at Beyonce but not at Jay-Z.
  13. Deep Cut Sets and Old Gold

    Funny old world - I much preferred the second half. Although admittedly I was in the perfect giving-strangers-the-huggies, bawling-my-eyes-out-to A Change Is Gonna Come state for it.
  14. Deep Cut Sets and Old Gold

    Only for the first set - and deservedly, I'd say, given it was him that brought him out of retirement to sing with Gorillaz and record a solo album.
  15. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    It'll be 8 years....
  16. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    The Glasgow date is the same day as the Stones in Edinburgh....
  17. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Lord knows why, but due to consensus and a lack of obvious alternatives we wound up at the Dropkick Murphys. I'll say this for them - they're a bigger draw than Emilie Sande.
  18. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Yup. We walked by on the way from Silver Hayes to West Holts and we were able to cut right across the middle of the Other Stage field. It was deserted.

  20. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I'm still glowing with embarrassment for Sande due to her connoisseur-sized crowd on the Other Stage last year.
  21. Rolling Stones

    Can't wait to see * checks notes * The Hunna rocking out in the opening slot.
  22. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Got tickets for a festival that's just announced Emilie Sande as its final headliner
  23. Deep Cut Sets and Old Gold

    London got Macca and Pink Floyd, Edinburgh got McFly, Natasha Bedingfield and Jamie Cullum.
  24. Deep Cut Sets and Old Gold

    Fuck me. I've just twigged that I was actually in the crowd for this.
  25. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Probably to do with your expectations going in. 20 odd years ago they had a decent claim to being the most exciting live band on the planet, but by now things have probably settled down a bit. But the legend lives on, so if you're still expecting the greatest thing you've ever seen you might feel a bit short changed.
