  1. Kingsman Scene at Glastonbury

    Or The Membranes
  2. Kingsman Scene at Glastonbury

    Embrace? Is it set in 1997?
  3. Kingsman Scene at Glastonbury

    Is it noticeably set/filmed 'at' Glastonbury? Or does a title card flash up and then it's just a rent-a-festival cider advert backdrop?
  4. Nick Cave

    This thread should release a book and mop the floor with them.
  5. Nick Cave

    A travesty. Never before have I seen such a golden opportunity for Nick Cave puns spunked up the wall. And to top it all it's a fair bet that the vegan chilli concocted at the end of that recipe will be bare minging.
  6. Nick Cave

    WTF? What even is point? "Nick Cave might one day eat a vaguely similar kale risotto"
  7. Nick Cave

    I see that at least one person bought the vegan cookbook:
  8. Who should reform?

    I actually caught a wee nit of their (only previous?) slot at the G Don't know how best to summarise it, unfortunately.
  9. 2017 New Music Thread

    Indeed. Season of mists and mellow baroque chamber pop.
  10. 2017 New Music Thread

    All about this today
  11. Undercard Yet To Play Glastonbury

    The Lep should definitely think about a mini UK career relaunch by hitting up the Pyramid late one afternoon.
  12. Old Music Thread

    What it is:
  13. Which festivals will sell out quicker next year?

    Wack, man Turner Overcharge
  14. 2019 Headliners

    You can't get shitter than a thick Rick Witter.
  15. Arcade Fire

    Someone (tevaburger?) posted a few pages back about them struggling to shift tickets for Madison Square Gardens.
  16. Liam Fray slams classist snobs who criticise northern fans

    YMCA booms out over the soundsystem Crowd: *starts throwing shapes* dentalplan: "This meme is over ten years old".
  17. Liam Fray slams classist snobs who criticise northern fans

    Meme? The fact that it's a decade old and still firmly relevant as a descriptor of any number of bands today suggests it's not outlived its usefulness. If it helps me to filter out stuff that won't be for me than I'm happy about it. Someone on here used it to describe The Big Moon so I decided to skip 'em. Saw them on the Mercury Prize show and whoever it was did me a favour.
  18. Liam Fray slams classist snobs who criticise northern fans

    Probably opening Bluebeard's locked room here, but I find it a pretty useful term. Given indie was formerly an ethos rather than a sonic formula its handy to have a shorthand that allows you to immediately distinguish between, say, Orange Juice and Jake Bugg - without having to actually listen to the latter. Granted it's a pejorative, but then that's up to the bands themselves to escape the tag by not trading in cliche.

    Emily's still liking M. Ciccone's Instagram posts.
  20. Acts you don't "get"

    Renato's been through some lean years.
  21. Acts you don't "get"

    "Save Your Love"? Save your royalties as it won't be long before you're back waiting tables Toni's Trattoria in Sutton Coldfield, mate. "Only You"? Only a sextet of snowman costume-clad sideburn-festooned socialists murdering Yazoo on Christmas Top of the Pops, mate.
  22. Acts you don't "get"

    The only thing worse than the Christmas Number 1 in 1982 is the Christmas Number 1 in 1983.
  23. Acts you don't "get"

    Just me that's baffled by the popularity of Renee and Renato?
  24. Nick Cave

    We're in a pocket dimension where Carrie Page is going to triumph over Judy by playing Junkyard at her at top volume.
