  1. Not sure where this goes, if anywhere, but it’s another step on the way to next years festival, and thus good news - applications for traders now open: https://glastonbury.nub.news/n/applications-to-trade-at-glastonbury-festival-2022-now-open---here-is-everything-you-need-to-know @crazyfool1 - you could open a cheese sandwich stall. Gets you into the festival and helps reduce your cheese stockpile at the same time

  2. Go to Sziget - you won’t regret it. There’ll be some decent headliners and a decent undercard....& but none of that’s the main thing - it’s one of the best festivals you could ever be at... a proper WORLD party in a fantastic city. Every person you meet is from somewhere else, so much to explore on the island & in the city. A Glastonbury level of life changer. Don’t hesitate.

  3. Liverpool Rock and Roll Half marathon for me today and a PB 01:52:11 not bad for a 48 year old pie arse.

  4. Did my local 10k race today. Personal best of 46.09. Happy with that and it was perfect weather/a lovely, scenic course down a canal.

  5. Rush. Their back catalogue is pretty big, but Moving Pictures is widely held to be their high point, and it is very accessible. I also like some of the “newer” prog bands. Marillion have done some great stuff (Misplaced Childhood and Clutching at straws) and Dream Theater mix it well with Metal (Images and Words). But of course, if you don’t like prog, they will sound awful to you! Quite a lot of Phish has a prog element to it, but the live albums are the way to go (A Live One is a good place to start).

  6. Funnily enough I’m working at my local venue for the upcoming Focus gig. I love them. Gentle Giant are an eclectic taste to say the least. Try Octopus or Freehand. I’m expecting you’ll hate them!!

  8. Just got back from For Those I Love in Bristol. It felt so raw at times it was uncomfortable to watch; like you were intruding on something deeply personal. Absolutely incredible. I really feel like the record will be cult classic in the future. It’s criminally under exposed.

  9. My best advice would be to hang around here for a while and join in the conversations, by June next year you should have met plenty of people who would be happy to meet up

  10. I have to say, I am pretty upset with Liverpool. I thought City, Chelsea, and Liverpool all had an agreement to not embarrass Man U so that they won’t have to fire Ole. Now they may actually be forced into hiring someone who is actually a competent manager.

  15. The Peter Gabriel era Genesis albums are (mostly) good. I’d recommend ‘Selling England By The Pound’ as a great entry point - it’s accessible whilst having some of their marquee prog songs (Firth of Fifth, Cinema Show etc), and their first ‘hit’ (I Know What I Like).

  17. That new Every Time I Die album is really something isn't it? That, Biffy, and Broco all on one day is just an overload of great stuff, what a weekend.

  18. Yes, seen all the greats with their classic line ups, zeppelin, deep purple, stones, sabbath, yes, Tull, King Crimson etc. Thanks to my late mum for financing most of the gigs and to the teachers that ignored me bunking off school to go and queue for tickets in Glasgow!

  19. Saw The Mysterines and Tourist in Leeds over the last couple of nights and both were phenomenal! The Mysterines were so good I immediately bought tickets for their March tour when I got on the train home - check them out if you haven't already (you can listen to all their tracks on Spotify in ~40mins). I didn't know what to expect from Tourist but it was a hell of an atmosphere in that room. He brought it up and down like a master and dropped his biggest tracks throughout the set. I don't see enough live electronic these days so it made for a nice change. The date was actually rescheduled from 2019 (bet he was gutted to postpone the dates before Covid was even a thing).

  21. I loved that Tony Bennet performance. After several days in the mud and shit (I did spend quite a bit of that weekend in the Dance Tent) it was a wonderful tonic. It gave me, as a then 20 year old, a fondness for crooners that I still have today. The juxtaposition between the world he represented - all spotless shiny suits and Vegas standards, against the hordes of the mud caked, 5 days deep Glasto crowd was something that's not often, if ever, really been repeated on the farm.

  23. Yeah, the headliners are weak so far, but at least 3 big names are still missing. The undercard is quite strong tough. Alter Stage looks good.

  24. not sure government are going to care about what guardian and independent say, and you could argue there was a lot of pressure for freedom day back in the spring from mail/telegraph/sun etc. Data from hospitals and what scientific advisers are saying will in the end be what leads to more restrictions, and also tory MPs who will very much be against (unless really bad). I reckon it's 50/50 whether we have to have plan B, maybe half term will help a bit and a big drive to get boosters rolled out and kids jabbed will help prevent the need for it, just have to see. Govt will be worried about things getting bad later in the winter and they'll get accused of not following advice and acting too late again.

  25. With what we have so far, it wouldn't surprise me if it was Taco Hemingway, A$AP Rocky and Måneskin. Not exactly 2020 levels, is it?

  27. I bought my ticket back in 2019 for 2020 and I rolled my ticket over. 🤠 Also there were 2 sales this year and both were for 48 hours only (early bird tickets and szitizen prime). Sziget should announce first names very soon and regular tickets will go on sale then (I suppose). ✌🏼

  29. Almost the same musical path as myself. Heavy rock , zeppelin, sabbath , purple and the progressive bands you mentioned as well as less well known bands such as Uriah Heep and Atomic Rooster. The arrival of punk which I loved didn’t stop me liking the classic rock acts. Disco didn’t appeal though the BeeGees were the exception! As the years passed I find you become less snobbish and clannish about music. That’s the beauty of Glastonbury, from the Avalon to the pyramid, just great music of every genre everywhere. Apart from jazz, I can’t get it, never have and I’ve tried!

  38. they'd just resent paying taxes for something they don't use...which tory govt will happily fix for them...and you end up with an even more unequal country than we have. We just need a well funded national health service paid by a fair tax system.

  39. We saw Salem this week, (lively front man from Creeper) good in a sort of modern pop punk sort way. Shortish set as they've not a massive amount of material but this did lead to a great cover of the Damned's "New Rose"

  41. Pathetic money grab. This line is just hilarious: Elden's lawyer, Robert Y. Lewis, argues that the inclusion of the dollar bill (which was superimposed after the photograph was taken) makes the minor seem "like a sex worker".
