    I've seen Tommy Lee off of Motley Crue give it the "Hello Londooooooon!" at both Donington and Manchester.

    Football 18/19

    VAR has proved useful in that it's stopped a lot of the grabbing, pushing, shoving that was going on at the start of the tournament. It was really noticeable how much less it was being referred to by the end of the competition. Bring it in to the Premier League and it'll be carnage for a month, then it'll all settle down. It's no coincidence so many goals have been scored from free kicks and corners, defenders are terrified to grab attackers like they used to because they know a penalty will be given. I'm not sure this is a good thing or not, how will managers go? Set piece specialists, get a corner and through in all the massive defenders to stand in a line and attack the ball? Interesting times ahead.

    Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2019

    Fuck it. That's two acts I know about so it's enough to start the thread. Beach Boys playing Albert Hall on 25th & 26th June and now Wilco doing a European Festival on 21/22 June. Is there US festival on next year? Any more?

    Bobby wasn't on Twitter for long and, bless him, he was shit at it.

    Be still my beating heart. Two of the greatest albums ever, right there.

    June 2018

    I've certainly missed it more than 2012, I think the weather has been a bit of a kick in the teeth. I probably should have arranged another festival to go to, I've done Bearded but I always do so that's no substitute, other than that just a one dayer in town. I'm not sure if coming on here everyday and sending out all those Thingy "On This Day" tweets has been a help or a hindrance, on the one hand it's been a bit like having a support group, on the other it's a constant reminder of what could have been. I'd say that on the Dunlop scale I'm at Hobo on Avalon. It may not be a headline grabber but is something I look forward to enormously every year, always great fun and a little emotional.

    Weezer doing Bibao BBK 2019, not seen anything that confirms the dates but if the same as this year, would mean 2 weeks after Glastonbury.

    Don't be, but should you need any hair metal info, I'm your man. Tigertailz were the shit Welsh version of Poison. Good to see the boys back on the forum

    Festival Survey - Dissertation

    Thanks for responding. That makes more sense now, I was thinking that may have been what you were working towards but it wasn't clear. How about supplying the trolleys for the travellers, a load of the same type that fold away neatly would save a lot of space. Good luck!

    Nah. Night Songs is a great album, they sound more like AC/DC on that one rather than how they look. The Tigertailz one on the other hand is utter garbage.

    Festival Survey - Dissertation

    Done. Good to see another survey from someone who actually uses the site. Not sure on this question though: Which of these do you see as the biggest advantages for taking a coach to a European festival (select as many as apply) Taking your own creates of alcohol/cider to the festival Not having to worry about parking or train station/airport transfers Being able to travel with a large group of people No luggage restrictions, taking all your regular festival equipment You can sleep on the coach I've been on coaches to festivals in the UK and they have luggage restrictions. Yes, you can take on more than you could if going by air but you can't take on crates of beer plus all your other camping stuff.

    The Vinyl Thread

    I got three in this sale, a Frank Turner picture disc and 2 Cougar/Mellancamp efforts, all £6 each. Took a while to turn up because one was not in stock, which is a bit odd for a sale item. Anyway, one of them (Melancamp's excellent Lonesome Jubilee) was a little odd. 1 st play it jumped all over the place, I couldn't see any scratches, marks, paper etc. For some reason I persisted and tried again, it still jumped but not as much. Kept trying and now it's fine, never had that happen before. Any ideas? Is it little bits of vinyl stuck in the grooves?

    2019 Improvements

    Don't be messin' with Avalon. Or T&C. Where would I go? Bring back Bourbon Street is my annual shout. Fluffy Rock Cafe needs to be restored to a venue, too.

    I see Craig Finn is supporting Brian Fallon on his European tour. Manchester already sold out. Bums.
