    All Points East Festival 2018

    Got Friday/Sunday tickets for this. Hopefully the first of a few smaller festivals next year. Also considering just spending a week catching up with London based mates and going to The National the following Saturday. My bank balance needs your prayers

    Acts you don't "get"

    Biffy Clyro. Don't believe the press, everyone in Scotland hates them too.

    One month on...

    Took me two months to come back to my favourite page on the internet. Fair to say this one had a big impact on me.

    Acts you don't "get"

    London Grammar. Convinced its a nation-wide practical joke at my expense that people (who normally have good taste) genuinely like them

    The XX

    I'm not quite there yet, but I could see myself coming to that conclusion too. Listened to it on vinyl last night for the first time and the whole Side A is pretty much perfect

    The XX

    I thought they were brilliant. I'm a fan but I had concerns going into it. Tough spot on the Pyramid for a band that probably, on paper, looked like they'd struggle in that environment. But they smashed it. Great performances, great chemistry on stage, good interaction with the crowd, they looked like they were loving every moment and it was infectious. Romy's voice was unbelievable, delivery on Permformance was spine tingling. Jamie's production makes a huge difference to their live performance, even songs like Angels you could almost dance to. Only minor complaint would be that I'd have liked to have heard A Violent Noise as it's my favourite song on the new album, but aside from that the set list ticked most of the boxes. As a quick aside on the latest album: I've been listening to it again after having a break for a few months and I absolutely love it. Brave For You is about the only track I can't get on board with. As a record it's streets ahead of Coexist and I'm increasingly of a mind that it's up there with their debut.

    Laura Marling

    LCD Soundsystem....

    We've got a bit of a split in our group for the Glasgow dates, looking to do swaps in possible. If anyone has 3 tickets for the Wednesday night and wants to swap them for Tuesday night give either myself or @Rubber Soldier a shout.

    CD Swap 2017

    I was thinking about this over the weekend, went in today to find out when it was kicked off last year and low and behold it was on the 8th May! May as well give it another go eh? I've said to @Funky Jim that I'd do the honours this year since he organised last year. The idea is that you reply to this thread if you want to take part. Then make a CD mix of confirmed 2017 Glastonbury artists, I'll separate everyone groups of 4, you swap addresses in PM with the rest of your group, then post em out. You then receive 3 analogue, old school, compact disc playlists to listen to in the last couple of weeks running up to the festival! I did it last year for the first time and it was great. Post below if you want to join in, I'll leave it open for a week or two then I'll post the groups so people have plenty of time to make and post their mixes out. And people in my group: Please, no Sheeran...

    P!ss!ng on the farm

    It's the guys pissing up against the walls of the urinals that get me. Come on mate you've walked all the way here, can you not hold it in for 30 seconds until you get a space at the trough?
