  1. Making the effort to get back to the market on a Saturday for as much of our fruit & veg as possible, avoids most of the packaging issues.

    Robbie 2020 Levellers, New Model Army and 3 Daft Monkeys 2021 I'd make that sacrifice
  3. Season Best. So my best this year, but not up to all time personal best

    He dropped that Party Like a Russian nonsense and has since dropped off the radar. I for one have no desire to mount a search party. Maybe he'll be leading the charge at Area 51
  5. Are they talking to you yet or are they still in a sulk? First week back on the full routine completed last week, and hit a SB for 5km on Monday night. About another 15 secs off and I'll break PB

    Nope to Robbie for me. Aside from the fact I find his persona insufferably smug (and pretty much everything post-2001 utter dross), from all the live footage I've ever seen from him he's absolutely one of the worst for sitting back and just letting the crowd sing his bastard songs. We've had the backing track vs singing discussion elsewhere, but strutting the stage with a mic pointed at the crowd while they sing all the difficult bits is up there with full-on miming for me. EDIT: clearly they can book him if they want. I'm not going to rip my ticket up or bitch at Emily on the socials. I'll just be in a very different field watching something else
  8. That band's called Hatari for anyone like me that had no clue what that typeface was saying!

    Multiple Chris Martins. Fucker's cloned himself.

    Saw them at Download in '16 and it was amazing. Couldn't believe it really, Ozzy genuinely wandered onstage looking like he'd rocked up by mistake and was looking for an armchair and a fish supper. Once the music started he was like a man possessed, like 45 years of muscle memory just took over and he ran on autopilot. Absolutely glorious.

    Quite good yep, but maybe not Pyramid headliner good.

    They could play Sunny Afternoon and Waterloo Sunset on loop for an hour and I'd go away fulfilled.
  13. Magic Gang is the only one there I can comment on live. I think they're really good and they really seem to have a blast being on stage, but they do have a big following in the younger market. That's no bad thing in itself, and it meant there was loads of energy in the crowd when I saw them in a sweaty venue in Brighton, but the downside is a load of 18 year olds who think a band deserves a circle pit just because they've got guitars in. So if you don't mind the cast of the Inbetweeners smashed on cider and thinking they're watching Pantera, go for it! It's quite good fun to occasionally bounce one of them off into the distance when they get a bit over-boisterous

    Skimming back a few pages, Ronson's Other set was, and it surprised me as much as anyone, absolutely jumping. Proper good. But.... I would question whether an artist whose work relies so heavily on collaborations is a Pyramid headliner. Maybe another one to add to the litmus tests: doe their work stand up without guest appearances? I don't know if Ronson's would. But that finale of Uptown Funk with George Clinton, Grandmaster Flash and Mary J Blige was absolute fucking gold.
  15. Great isn't it? I find it has more impact if you put it over a major town you know well. Doesn't loook as impressive over our village, but put it on the town where I grew up and it makes more sense I know pal, just made me chuckle
