    The map of the Hydro showed the golden circle in the middle of the crowd surrounded by the GA tickets. Dunno how that works, unless the gig is in the round.

    The O2 presale for the Hydro was definitely an exercise in trying to palm off low quality seats to eager beavers who'll buy the first thing that goes into their basket for fear of missing out.

    When he takes it to Brazil on the second last track it's fucking glorious. Fuck maybe cos it's so tuneful accessible I can imagine the proper jazz heads and Albert Ayler fans finding it all a bit training wheels, but for me this immediately joins the likes of Birth of the Cool and Giant Steps in the pantheon of yer basic Jazz Albums Starter Set.
  5. 30k more tickets for Glastonbury in future?

    And he didn't even play Little James.

    Ticketmaster says there's a Gigs IN Scotland presale tomorrow for the Hydro. Anyone had an email about it yet?

    New K-Wash is just about the most beautiful music ever made.

    Not only there, but right down the front of the so-called No Filter Pit with the WAGs and supermodel offspring on one of the 4 or 5 tickets for it that were made available at non-ludicrous prices. Jaw on the ground close. Gig was great, albeit was a wee bit cheesed to miss out on Dancing With Mr D. Still, Shine A Light more than made up for that, so swings and roundabouts. Keith hasn’t improved any since last time out, to be fair, but it was quite something how loud in the mix he was and how discordant and edgy it made them sound. Almost avant garde at points. I was so wasted that afterwards I queued for what I thought was the train back to the centre but it turned out I’d been waiting in line for half an hour to see Dutch house megastar Headhunterz at the Ziggo Dome next door. The bouncer was so amused when I waved him my train ticket that he was going to let me in for nothing.

    Bit worried to watch that back, but seeing it go down in the flesh was bucket list stuff....!

    30,000 more centrist dads at the Other Stage, all getting increasingly furious while stood waiting for the Kaiser Chiefs.

    I dunno if I'd read too much into one or even a few instances, but it's happening relatively frequently. Still might be a red herring, though.

    I met Mick Fleetwood's sister last night in a pub near the site and she confirmed that they're definitely playing.

    Maybe he's come to realise that taking the IOW filthy lucre last time was a bit of an own goal.
  19. Future headliners

    My new band Centrist Dad are causing a bit of a stir.
  20. Future headliners

    My band just wanted to be the toppermost of the poppermost.

  24. Acts you don't "get"

    Bit of an odd act to have beef with given that they're largely an under the radar cult concern. It's like getting miffed at Half Man Half Biscuit or something.

    It's Amateur Hour in here.
