  1. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Yup. I also failed to get Streets tickets. Partly my own fault for not being quite on the ball but they just went so fast.
  2. Sleaford Mods

    Best mate is a massive fan and we go to a lot of gigs together so have been going to see them since Andy joined around 2012'ish, about the time of Austerity Dogs. Always great live, met Jason a couple years ago at a screening of Invisible Britain in Nottingham after which they did a Q&A with the filmmakers, sound bloke. Lyrics are genius. Fingers firmly on the pulse.
  3. Pink Floyd?

    I had been considering Amsterdam (The Tuesday gig). Day in the coffee shop followed by RW = Blown Mind. Unfortunately know nothing of Ziggo Dome venue though.
  4. Nick Cave

    Nottingham had 4 screens, 1 either side of the stage, 1 behind and 1 toward the back of the arena. Nothing on them for about the first half of the performance and then alternated between showing the band live and showing videos/backdrops associated with Skeleton Tree.
  5. Nick Cave

    Thanks for all the replies. Excited for the gig tonight.
  6. Nick Cave

    Thanks for this. Wife can't finish work until after 6 and it's an hours drive to the Nottingham venue. Should hopefully catch most of the set.
  7. Glastonbury A-Z acts seen

    Ash Biffy Clyro Chemical Brothers Doves Eat static Faithless Glasvegas Hot Chip Ian Brown Jack White Kings of Leon LCD Soundsystem Metallica Neil Young Orbital Primal Scream QOTSA Roger Waters Streets Tristan Underworld Verve White Stripes XX Yo La Tengo Zutons Reckon I could almost go twice around barring X.
  8. 2017 New Music Thread

    Won't be told what I can and cannot talk about ;
  9. Undercard Yet To Play Glastonbury

    New'ish band King Buffalo out of New York. Formed 2013, released debut album last year. Hoping they can keep moving forward and make it to Glastonbury at some point. Would be perfect for The Glade. Stoner rock, nothing that hasn't been done before but they do their version of it very well.
  10. Beyond The Tracks

    Can't remember where I saw it but it has been advertised for a while that they are playing Leftism in full at the festival.
  11. Queens of the Stone Age

    Been alternating between this record and the new LCD. Took a little while to creep on me but really digging it now. It's been a couple years since I last saw them, I reckon November will be great.
  12. Murder at Bestival

    Reading this morning that the father is convinced it is not murder and the guy arrested was a friend. Looks to be drug related atm. Could there be any stronger support for legalization and testing. So sad, could have been so easily prevented.
  13. Bearded Theory 2018

    Had to pick the youngest up from Manc Airport so wife tried for the earlybirds via her phone on the way. Got through at 09:04, early birds sold out at 09:03. Ah well, it's only a couple of quid and the main thing is we are going again. Been the last 2 years and would struggle to fill in an 'improvements' suggestion form. I really can't think of anything I would change.
  14. Beyond The Tracks

    Moseley is ran really well so expecting this to be also. Great lineup for me and just down the road. Unfortunately I fly out to Spain this weekend. Bummer (sort of). Will be keeping an eye out for after reports and will schedule it in next year for sure.
  15. General News Discussion

    Well it's not his body that has to carry the child, suffer the pain/sickness, give up work for a period and so on. That final choice can only ever really be a womans (without going down the whole surrogate route etc). edit - This is consistent with my argument that a woman should not be forced to be a mother but in the same manner a man should not be forced to be a father.
