  1. The Great Welly Mountain of 2011
  2. Both good. It rains a lot less than Green Man!
  3. I've gone all-in and booked a Honeybell... fuck it, its 8 months away.
  4. Top line up and brilliant under-card, as ever. Not good to be excited 8 months in advance but I am. Warmduscher, Squid, Black Country New Road, Dawson, Dry Cleaning, WH Lung, Penelope Isles, Creep Show etc. etc. Better than last year IMO. Clashtastic.

    Steely Dan is everyone's dirty secret.
  7. Agreed - the undercard is, frankly, epic.

    Brilliant! One of the best moments ever... watch that crowd bounce at 1:40!
  11. This is a perfect pen portrait of one of those special moments at Glastonbury. Made me shiver! P.S. I'm well over 50 and I love Fontaines.
  12. Yes - it needs a good 4 or 5 listens and, like @Superunknown, the later tracks turn out to be gems. So many layers. I have recommended it too so many who would normally bat it away with suggestions of pop kitsch... they all love it now. The other two in my top three were The Murder Capital and Richard Dawson, closer to my usual musical tastes - NFR is way out of my normal listening!
  13. I have to agree - it has been the biggest surprise of the year for me. LDR would not usually be my area at all - I bought it after hearing Venice Bitch on the radio and it just grows and grows. The recording quality is epic and there isn't a duff track on the album IMO. It's her masterpiece - sad, nostalgic Americana with a hint of knowing sarcasm.
