  5. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    All a bit up in the air for me this year due to ongoing dodgy knees. Glastonbury last year was a real struggle and they have deteriorated since then. Currently i'm at a stage where surgery is needed in at least one knee, but consultant surgeon is unclear exactly what needs doing for the best outcome as apparently it is unusual to have a 25mm lump of cartilage hanging off the back of the knee! Have booked for a couple of day events in London (QOTSA and Nick Cave/Patti Smith) and will probably risk Bearded Theory as its small and flat, although may have to buy a camp bed as not sure if sleeping on (and getting up from) my normal Thermarest mat is still feasible.
  6. 2018 New Music

    Thunder, Lightning, Strike is their first and the one that contains Ladyflash which you may have heard on the radio over the years even if you haven't realised who it was.
  7. Bearded Theory 2018

    Their Twitter also now says that Saturday's headliner will be announced. Still not there with Friday's one then?
  8. Talking Heads

    Probably, i remember in 2009 they seemed expensive (£30.00+) and prices have exploded in the intervening years
  9. Bearded Theory 2018

    Ruts on the woodland stage though
  10. 2019 Headliners

    I still can't forget or forgive the snoozfest when they played Leeds festival in 07
  11. The National

    I haven't had a chance to listen to the rest of the album yet so i have nothing to compare it to, but any track that comes on the car radio and makes me lean over and turn up the volume the first time i hear it is alright by me.
  12. The National

    I had the CD of Boxer back in 2007, but since then The National had generally passed me by and i couldn't really see the attraction, however had Six Music on in the car yesterday and heard something really great which turned out to be Turtleneck! Looks like a reassessment of the National is in order for 2018. Spotify here i come.
  13. Things that ur happy about

    I Will keep an eye on it Paul. Will be interested in your thoughts on Nepal when you get there. I was only out there for a couple of weeks holiday last year but loved it. Kathmandu very frantic, lakeside at Pokhara very relaxing, mountains very magical. Have a great time
