  1. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Well Happy New Year folks! I’ve largely been absent from here over the last 6 months or so as real life has taken over a little. I’ve briefly checked in now and again though it has seemed very quiet. What has been going on in my life while I’ve been away? Not too much...work, more work, a gig with yeti and H.M.V, a bit more work, Christmas, Trip to Australia and now looking for more work! Hope you’re all keeping well and doing the stuff you all do. I’ll try to check in a bit more. Love to all, Shaun.

    Great to see Johnny Greenwood nominated for an Oscar today for his Phantom thread soundtrack after being disqualified a few years ago.

    I thought this was going to be another 2010 vs 2017 thread! An admirable offer Sir. Well done.

    A great time was had by all Lucy. Strangely enough on Sunday morning I wasn't too bad despite also forgetting my sleeping mat and having a shit nights sleep. Doh! That cherry bakewell is bloody lethal stuff though...

    Hey lovelies, Just back from Kendal Calling and I have to say if every festival got cancelled due to a bit of mud it would have been proper fucked! Whilst not quite as bad as Glasto2016 the relative smaller size of the site and accompanying foot traffic certainly made it comparable in places. Due to family commitments I couldn't make it up until Saturday but highlights included Editors (a bit of a guilty pleasure and always great), The Manics, (I've always been a fan but Everything Must Go was released at a time of huge change in my life and it was fantastic to be taken back with hits from imo their best album to date) and Brian Wilson presents Pet Sounds. (While I agree with @stuartbert two hats in that Brian is probably the weakest link in the ensemble he can still reach those high notes and the harmonies were just sublime). I also had the pleasure of spending a few hours on Saturday night with the very lovely @Curlygirl who fed me some of her famous Cherry Bakewell vodka and some other concoction that I can't remember. This pretty much tipped me over the edge on top of the alcohol I had somehow managed to hit quite hard since I got there and I had to admit, I was very, very drunk! Sunday opened with The Lancashire Hotpots, (always a great singalong with some great fun songs) before I spent the afternoon bimbling around catching bits of everything. Sunday highlights included Seasick Steve (never failing to entertain) and Frank Turner. None of the main headliners on Sunday appealed greatly so I headed up to the Woodlands stage to watch The London African Gospel Choir singing Paul Simon's Graceland. (A fantastic end to the festival). All in all it was a great couple of days and although being my local festival probably makes me a little biased, I strongly believe it's one of the best festivals I've been to in an amazing setting and despite the mud I still had an amazing time. Have a great week all. Shaun.

    Just about to set off for KC. Does anybody have a contact no for Curlygirl by any chance?

    I I guess at his age it's to be expected. As long as the band did their bit, I'm sure it's well worth being there for. Glad you had a great night. I'll report back with my views.

    After all the stuff from above today I've a feeling it's going to be very muddy up there!

    How was it Stuart? Seeing him on Sunday up at Kendal Calling, really looking forward to it.
  10. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Haha, I'll keep an eye out. Going to be a muddy one methinks!
  11. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Hey Cg, are you going to KC on the Thursday? Had some r**n over the last few days, make sure your welliebobs are packed. Due to family commitments I don't think I'll be up until Saturday morning. Let me know if you're about.
  12. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Super news Guy! A new t'shirt is always cause for celebration!
  13. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Thanks Lucy, I'll have a proper catch up later next no doubt wade in with some belated opinions!

    Bloody hell, I check out for a couple of weeks and come back to find not only a new NFR thread but 17 pages in already! Anyhoo, howzit lovelies, I've been offline for a little while, what did I miss apart from reminiscing?
