    2019 Headliners

    Black Eyed Peas instead of Blur. Coldplay instead of Chems. Beyonce instead of QOTSA/The Streets. I mean I could go on in terms of hindsight mistakes but they're not really regrets, for one reason or another they were the right decisions at the time. Although when I mention I was at 09 and people immediately ask how good blur were sometimes I just lie and say how good they were.

    Never listened to MBV coz they didn't sound like the Good Charlotte song of the same name. Interesting both bands are aiming to make you throw up these days though.

    The Ting Tings are a pointless in a world that has The Lovely Eggs.

    It's in literally no ones interest for Coldplay to sub. If they sub they can't headline for another 4 years or so would Coldplay or the Eavii want that?

    This is a lovely surprise, their album in January was great. New 6 song EP out Oct 12th. Dunno why they keep insisting on releasing summer bangers so far away from summer. Also, that Ting Tings song is amazing, I don't know how they've come out with something so bad? They were never that great but man, hats off to them.

    Post-pub BBC4 turned me into a rod stewart fan, bring him on.

    I used to love White Lies, haven't bothered for years though. Encouraging to hear some of you like them. They did a great Bruce cover in 2009 iirc

    I hope we don't get the third headliner till May again, there were a couple of years where had to wait it out and people were going nuts. That twist that it was The Who despite them already having a gig booked was beautiful. Been a bit easy the last couple of years.

    Slaves were great fun for a bit, before the debut came out the gigs were a good laugh. They were never the kind of thing is have recommended on here though (I was only lurking 4 years ago though to be fair).

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Might have to rethink my Lemon Twigs position based on this, it works so much better with the 2 of them both being up front rather than switching over. Although I do miss Micheal being on the drums.

    Vampire Weekend

    that would have been a horrible clash if The Fall weren't on around the same time rendering every other stage not an option.

    Don't think we could have gone for more opposed takes there at exactly the same time ahah.

    Think it's a bit unfair throwing shame and the rest of the new breed of gobby-teenager-punkish bands that have a few catchy songs with on the nose lyrics and some very mild success to the onslaught of non-stop radio playing and arena tours of the mid 00s indie lot, it's a pretty easily avoided scene and most of it's DIY so it's not like anyone's missing out because of it. I enjoy the mini 3-year rise through the mini to mid sized venues over 2 albums cycle a lot of bands end up doing these days, then another one pops up as they start to fade. Can't see shame ever commanding the quality/longevity of The Cribs. IDLES'll probably give it a go though, they have some incredibly keen fans.

    Arctic Monkeys 2019

    Jesus, I really thought I could grab an easy ticket after the mediocre reception to the album but there was only 1 tout selling tickets tonight and it was 100 clams for a sitting ticket. Second night in Manchester n all. Didnae make it in.
