  1. Fellow scousers will hopefully be as excited as me about this finally being out. Probably Liverpool’s most enigmatic band over the past few years - singer/songwriter was based in Shanghai for a while but they still seemed to release new stuff on a regular basis. I was speaking to someone connected to them at Glastonbury and apparently there is a secret hand of Ladytron at play on a few of these tracks.
  2. I’ve tested positive today. Hope it’s more the Ben Elton strain than the Bernard Manning one.
  3. If Oranj Son aren’t knocking on the door then it will be a surprise. BBC Introducing Merseyside love them and rightly so. A bit enigmatic and below the radar locally but when they do appear live there is a real buzz about them. New album is wonderful.
  4. one for fans of Liverpool’s best (and best kept secret) band Oranj Son. Debut album finally released. I was talking to Dave Monks from Merseyside’s BBC Introducing recently and he loves these. Said he had heard the album and it was ‘mind-blowing’. Totally off the radar in terms of the local scene but they just appear every now and then and play absolutely blinding sets. I saw them at the Festevol gig last year with Kelly Lee Owens and Working Men’s Club and they were well set in that company. Mates in Bristol and Brighton have seen them as well, just turning up and playing some mad venue and getting a few heads in through word of mouth. Proper old school In a way.
  5. Just had an email saying my order has been sent out today. I assume that means my WV car park pass. It also has a number as my reference (WORTHY ****); is that likely to be my tent number?
  6. Stood near the back with the booze smugglers and smokers; totally chilled, great atmosphere. New stuff was really good and his voice was the best it has sounded for years.
  7. Seriously? That’s the counter to my position?
  8. Exhibit A: Pussy Riot it is possible - some Russians, ordinary people and high profile figures, are making explicit statements condemning Putin and his war. If she chooses not to then that’s fine, it’s a risk management choice possibly. But it’s still a choice and it should mean she is nowhere near Glastonbury.
  9. This is so far beyond not reading the room it is unbelievable. I was half expecting some sort of dramatic statement from the Festival that put this to bed with a wholly Ukraine-supportive position. Now if she does end up not playing it will look like a forced climb down. They could not have got this any more wrong.
  10. Perfectly put. This is now a full on embarrassment.
  11. Nina Kraviz being binned is the highlight of the lineup. Well, that and Chris Difford.
  12. Generally accepted to be £1 billion. 26 million households, so 30 odd quid a household. That’s gross (I know, in more ways than one…) so I suppose you should really net off economic benefits before deciding how much it has cost taxpayers. If anything.
  13. Accuracy doesn’t matter….? Did you say you were a teacher?
  14. I think that £30K figure has been doing the rounds, but it is clearly nonsense. The figure is something like £35 per household. Extra day off, seems ok to me.
