    Football 18/19

    The fee for Gunn was strange enough last week. The third-choice keeper market is going wild. I just had a search to see what Mignolet was up to. I thought things had gotten really bad for Karius and Mignolet when I saw this.

    2019 Stage Predictions

    2019 Stage Predictions

    Not as big as Ziggy Ross like, though they were arguably too big for John Peel. Park headline would be cool, but you could imagine them getting lumped into a Friday evening John Peel slot like every band we predict for Park headliner.

    Lineup 2018

    In a way, they do. People are romantic about the idea of some big band playing in a smaller slot at the festival, gets them more likely to go along despite a shitty lineup. Now it's a regular thing, people are discussing who it might be before the line up is announced.

    2019 Headliners

    Obviously I wouldn't put it past them either. It's just that Glastonbury set was kind of iconic to the AM era (despite it being utterly torturous even before Miles Kane showed up) so to come back again to celebrate that album a bit more and also do some lounge tunes that get talked over... It's not that I don't think Glastonbury would go for it, it's just fucking boring for everyone.

    2019 Headliners

    They played three songs off of it. It’d probably turn into six songs off AM now and three off Tranquility Base. Hardly worth inviting them back if the biggest change is that they’re dressed in different gear.

    Is BeZarist the name of the new Beady Eye best of compilation?

    All Points East Festival 2019

    Mate I doodled the poster weeks ago! Nah it completely makes sense that they’re going into this with a lot of money. They managed to kick Live Nation out of their home and I think AEG/Goldenvoice bought out Firefly Festival the other day so they’re clearly quite determined, perhaps aggressively. I wonder if the comparatively pleasant punter experience will advantage them next year against the FR/Mama London events, or whether people on the street wouldn’t be aware of the difference behind the scenes.

    2019 festival

    Two nights at the Al Pal as well. 20k that. Are they gonna be about five albums in? For a band that FR seem to be trying to put back on track, it doesn’t seem that outlandish. And going off the crowd they gathered at R+L last year, I wouldn’t really blame the fest for trying it.

    Kendrick Lamar

    Think this is better than the original.

    2019 Headliners

    Ayy so you did make the 'stupid' argument after all... His studio albums to date have been roughly two years apart each, with an album of studio outtakes in between the last two, and tours and plenty of features throughout. Why would it now be a good career move to stop working like that? Why would he now be over-stretched? Also, surely no one cares if he played R+L the year before. And I would think he'd take the paycut for Glasto in the middle of loads of European dates because it fits with the schedule, like quite a lot of international acts do.

    2019 festival

    I think it's too early to say for either band. Both bands sold huge numbers for their last album and I don't see why the next will be different. Foals, Disclosure and QOTSA all played academies before releasing the album they headlined with. And I'm not even talking as big as them, I just think they'll have someone that people would go see (as evidenced by their huge crowd last year) but wouldn't shift day tickets on their own. The 1975 and Twenty One Pilots would both shift day tickets comfortably, more so than BMTH would actually.

    2019 festival

    I think these would be the two biggest acts R+L have had coheadline, aside from Kendrick I guess. Just seems too strong. I feel that they'd separate them to different days and if, as you say, The 1975 have to be pared down because they've decided that they're doing Glastonbury as well, they'll couple them up with an act that is well below them. Got my eye on it being Two Door Cinema Club.

    2018 New Music

    Seems a bit better than their standard fare, even if it's because they've neglected to throw in some clichéd mantra over it this time.

    All Points East Festival 2019

    Yeah tbf even if you are lying, it's the perfect festival for them to headine, and probably the best choice of headliner that APE can get. If they are touring then I'd 100% expect them to do it. And I suppose they only need a bit of money waved at them to get them to tour.

    @Mash011 would leave Glastonbury to go watch The 1975 in London.

    Did he find out if The Cribs are headlining the Rock Stage?

    2018 New Music

    Is this an album track then? I think the lyrics are great on this one and I'll probably always laugh at "thank you Kanye, very cool". But, for me, the song itself isn't quite up to it. A bit of a boring slog. Chorus is pretty nice but not nearly enough of a payoff. Better than Give Yourself A Try in any case.

    2018 New Music

    Don't be so negative. After all, this could be the album that finally defeats Muse, couldn't it?

    2018 New Music

    I am actually surprised by that. They're usually shit in their own way, rather than sounding like Kodaline or whoever.

    Lineup 2018

    Yeah those are good points. If it comes out and is well received and galvanises their fanbase AND it's more considered than their blind hype, as you say - one of the things that I know put a lot of people off them - then they can really go on to achieve a lot.

    Would it help if I started posting pie charts with my comments?

    Lineup 2018

    Are they bouncing back strong? I feel like they've lost a lot of the hype, and I've never been a fan (as you'll know) but the fan response to songs doesn't seem to be as big as when they were dropping Sat 3 either. I guess they're doing well to not have the whole ordeal swallow them up. Another act has disappeared from the R+L lineup. If anyone was looking forward to seeing Brunswick, you're outta luck.
