  1. Beady Eye's second album was far better than anything Liam has produced solo. Big fan of this one in particular -
  2. When do we go back to Foals and The 1975 rumours once again?
  3. 1. Wolf Alice - Blue Weekend 2. Sam Fender - Seventeen Going Under 3. Chvrches - Screen Violence 4. Foo Fighters - Medicine at Midnight 5. Kings of Leon - When You See Yourself 6. Jungle - Loving in Stereo 7. Royal Blood - Typhoons 8. Billie Eilish - Happier Than Ever 9. Lorde - Solar Power 10. Elbow - Flying Dream 1
  4. Ed Sheeran sounds like Ed Sheeran. Nothing in there for non fans. I've given it my one and only spin. Then over the next 12 months the songs will slowly irritate at every shopping centre, supermarket and clothing store I enter.
  5. Big fan of the new Biffy album, it won't put them back as Pyramid subs anytime soon, but it's got enough their for their core fanbase to enjoy.
  6. Not massively into Ginger Mick. But this particular video is good craic, credit where credit's due -
  7. I thought it was dull and ripped off the worst bits of A Head Full of Dreams. Stick it in the bin with Ghost Stories.

    I love the idea of Adele playing random stadiums like Elton, a run of Oakwell, Ewood Park, Ashton Gate, Dean Court?
  9. London Grammar subbed at Rock Werchter in 2018, they were second down on John Peel Sunday the year before if I recall.
  10. 5 nights at Croke Park incoming. Absolutely the most weird music related thing that I found about Ireland since moving here.

    I tried Solar Power again yesterday, I liked it a little more coming back to it after a break. 6.5/10
  12. Found this documentary from last year to see how much has changed. I'll be honest it still feels like a horrible dream.
  13. IOW headliners are scraping the barrel these days. How are Kasabian back as headliners without a proper lead singer?
  14. Even Ireland are opening up soon. 60% indoor capacity at gigs and 75% outdoor from next week. Then all restrictions likely to be going on 22nd Oct. They have been super cautious here, but the vaccine uptake is around 6% higher in the population vs the UK. They are saying 90% of 16+ fully jabbed is the most they can expect and then life has to resume.
  15. Jungle's new album is a major return to form, I absolutely love it. After a couple of listens possibly an AOTY contender.
  16. This will be brushed under the carpet.
  17. Exam results about to become the next crisis, the media will only be talking about the climate crisis for 24 hours you can bet. Regarding exams, I can't see how Williamson survives this one. 49% of grades awarded as A or A*, 100% increase.
  18. Sadly I still can't go inside the pub yet in Ireland, and no gigs allowed yet. Might be "over" in the UK but by no means is it over elsewhere. Not even sure where we start on the climate change discussion, scary to even contemplate, but nobody is surprised by the report.
  19. It seems I was just short of sleep that's all (probably all those early mornings watching Olympic coverage). Forced myself for a run yesterday evening, then a decent night's sleep seems to have done the trick.
  20. Anyone got any tips for how to switch off? I've had three or four mad weeks at work winding down now, but really struggling to appreciate/enjoy stuff that would normally be bread and butter (films, sport etc.). My brains been working overtime, but I've found it really hard to focus on one thing today. Ended up jumping every 20-30 mins between efests, netflix, ps4, olympics, football. I went out for a walk earlier, but reverted to type when I got back. Is it just tiredness?
  21. A shame it's all over. Great effort from our GB cyclists and boxers.
  22. Laois will not see EP again I'm sure. It will either move to the North or somewhere in County Dublin I suspect. They will certainly regret not hosting the festival this time, when all participants would have been vaccinated. I know Melvin Benn needs the money, but hard to disagree with the points raised by Fest Republic to justify why/how the event should have gone ahead. When will Irish people accept the vaccine works and that life needs to return to normal?
  23. Pagel on BBC News admitting she was wrong, that the decline in cases was "a surprise and unexpected". Beautiful
  24. The high jump was good for the soul. I was feeling rotten this morning until I saw that, cheered me right up for the rest of the day.
  25. 7 way play off for Bronze in the golf, the stuff dreams are made of. Like tennis and men's football, I'm not convinced these should be in the Olympics. It's dominating the airtime over other sports which need coverage.
