  1. That Sunday Park lineup would be incredible. Friday at WH too. I like.

    Looks like 'Only UK show' rules them out of being billed on the lineup. That smacks of a secret set to me.

    Nick Cave

    Yep, the title track is stunning and as I say, I'm sure it will click at some point...but I've not had the patience so far throughout.

    Mine was Abbatoir Blues / Lyre of Orpheus.... which probably explains the positioning of that...

    Haha, I will have to give it another go. As I say, there's a lot of correlation with how much I have listened to the albums. That's just not one I've ever really been drawn back to yet. If I want to listen to that era / style of Nick Cave, I'd just always choose The Boatman's Call. I will try again though!

    Okay...I'm going to keep it to Bad Seeds albums...To be honest, my list is pretty much correlative with how often I've listened to each album - such is the nature of 'grower' albums. 1. Abbatoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus 2.Let Love In 3. Murder Ballads 4. Push the Sky Away 5. Henry's Dream 6. The Boatman's Call 7. Dig Lazarus Dig 8. No More Shall We Part 9. The Firstborn is Dead 10. Tender Prey 11. The Good Son 12. From Her to Eternity 13. Skeleton Tree 14. Nocturama 15. Your Funeral...My Trial 16. Ghosteen (I'm sure it will properly click soon) 17. No More Shall We Part

    Grinderman and The Birthday Party included? This could take some time.

    I like Nocturama. Bring it On is a banger.

    You're in for a treat. I'd recommend giving 'The Firstborn is Dead' a listen after Ghosteen. It's not his best at all but well, it's a very different kind of Nick Cave to the Nick Cave on Ghosteen...

    Your market research is Field of Dreams? A man who made a baseball pitch in his garden for ghosts? That's your role model?
  11. I think we need a poll to determine who was voting seriously or not,
  12. True - but the steps are right next to Tribe of Frog which is the best stage at Boomtown so there's a pretty decent consolation. Edit: And even if you don't use the stairs, the long way round isn't too bad at all - and there's so much to get distracted by on the way around Paradise Heights / Metropolis etc that the journey is often the best bit.
  13. Good luck in the ballots! The demographic is definitely younger than Glastonbury but I wouldn't worry about feeling out of place. While the majority are definitely in their 20s and 30s, there is still a decent mix of ages throughout the festival. I have never done Boomtown Springs / Skylark myself but some of my friends this year went and said they wouldn't go back to normal camping having done that. If you are arriving on Thursday, the options for a decent spot will reduce pretty quickly so it may be peace of mind in that regard as well. Having said that, we camped in the 404 campsite this year (north east of the map below). It's a little further to walk to the main areas and a little quieter than most but its right next to the car park (which is always nice) and we were able to get a very comfortable spot for about 30 of us without much difficulty.

  15. Someone on the ALL Points East thread heard that APE are trying for them for one of the days next year. If that is true, it would put them in the UK late May / early June. But of course that is still an if at this point.
