  1. Bearded Theory 2018

    If people get stuck for tickets nearer the time give Tamworth Information Office a ring. Year before last I managed to get one from there the night before the festival started, was the last place to still have tickets. Over the counter job and about 30 minutes from site so fairly easy to pick up on the way.
  2. Album of the Year 2017

    Surprised to see no mention of All Them Witches - Sleeping Through The War. First track 'Bulls' is one of my favourite tracks this year.
  3. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Ordered mine from Stolen Body in the Tri-Colour pressing. I've already uploaded it to my NAS and will give it a listen tonight. Edit - Tri-colour still available as I post this btw.
  4. Queens of the Stone Age

    Seeing them in Manc on Sunday. Seen them a few times previous and more than half that setlist will be the first I've heard them live so it's alright by me.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Nick Cave

    Thanks for all the replies. Excited for the gig tonight.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 2017 New Music Thread

    Won't be told what I can and cannot talk about ;
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
