  1. Hah, about 360 miles the other way and on way to Latitude tomorrow! Kind offer though, hope someone takes it up.
  2. Yep, that looks more likely ......staying out of the way so as not to put her Latitude appearance in jeopardy or risk any pings.
  3. Blimey. They played last time I went, afternoon slot on the Obelisk. having said that, his profile is a lot higher now.
  4. The US raising the threat level from the UK to Level 4 and recommending avoiding travel to the UK won't help with US bands coming over: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/covid-4/coronavirus-united-kingdom
  5. Thaat's my exact solution. WA at Latitude and Hot Chip at EoTR (hopefully).
  6. https://www.latitudefestival.com/explore/street-feast/
  7. Yeah. Always wanted to see BSP and seeing them in the Garden would be fantastic. Primal Scream would be a right party as well, even though Gillespie annoys the tits off me.
  8. Any thoughts on the possibility that a surprise, or last minute addition as a replacement if needed, might be British Sea Power, who have played EoTR several times and start a tour on 10th September? Good way to kick off a tour. Really hope this goes ahead.
  9. That Osmond idiot has subsequently apologised for getting it wrong so no, it's not that inaccurate. That's what happens when bar ownwers start becoming experts in mortality causes.
  10. The debut EP by The Lounge Society, ‘Silk For The Starving’, out June 18th From the same area as The Goa Express, Drenge ,W.H Lung and Working Men's Club. Must be something in the water there.
  11. Loving the synth on this. Bit of Moon Duo in there and their other stuff is in the King Gizzard mode. Album is "Take It From The Dead" out tomorrow:
  12. Ah yes......sugar. Wonder why that might be? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-57852513 https://www.farminguk.com/news/-disgraceful-foreign-sugar-company-sponsors-conservative-conference_47544.html There it is: https://vip.politicsmeanspolitics.com/2019/09/25/daydream-belizers-brexit-big-sugar-and-the-bad-boys-from-belize/
  13. They were granted a vote on the roadmap to pacify them even though there was no requirement for a vote. The roadmap is separate from the Coronavirus Regs which are enacted under the Coronavirus Act, up for ministerial review in September (they can vote on it but it's non binding). Either all measures are passed or it is repealed, but that is unlikely because it provides a lot of admin stuff that helps the NHS and other measures. A lot of the main restrictions are enacted by Ministerial Direction under the PH(CD) Act 84 and they are not voted on (this includes national bans on mass gatherings, for example) - the only thing that happens is that the Health Sec has to regularly review and judge whether they are still necessary to assist is a public health context. They could quite easily follow the roadmap but retain the restrictions under the PH(CD)A and claim that they have enacted the roadmap. Feel like I'm back in August last year!
  14. Swim Deep are OK - wasn't sure they were still going. They are great friends with Wolf Alice and Austin used to go out with Ellie Rowsell, so might be interesting to see if any of WA pitch up on stage with them.
  15. Right. That's the boot for you wrapped in a polythene sheet. 🤧😷🥶
  16. Yep, I didn't go in 2019 but the group I'm with did and they said that the layout had changed in 2019. We're normally to the right as you come in through the gate near a tree somewhere (drunken landmark), right next to the campervans. I don't mind the walk in so much but have got used to having a decent amount of space there. So it'll be new for me as well if it has radically changed.
  17. That really cannot be right on that map. General camping confined to two small areas (Red and Green) furthest away from the arena entrance? Going to be problems capacity and space wise for general campers if that is anything to scale.
  18. You'll be fine. Think a lot of people will be taking it easy and finding their own level over the first couple of days. As you say, mucho gin will help.
  19. Hope so. I'll be a lot more relaxed and willing to get into the tents etc if I know that the vast majority have been jabbed/provided LFTs etc. I remember Fatboy Slim in the big tent a few years ago - it was crowded, hot and going off - no way would I be in there this time if there were no precautions. As to masks etc, given the dust down past the entrance and into the woods, I'm likely to be wearing one for that anyway, as it can get like a duststorm when hot.
  20. As it's after the 19th and the presumed relaxation of restrictions etc, why are they still touting this as a test event, when there is clearly no need to? I would still feel safer if it was treated as an ERP event and the testing and vaccination proof was rigorously enforced, but given there will be no legal need then do you think they will still treat those requirements as seriously?
  21. Boom Village festival cancelled amid rising cases Boom Village was going to be held on the same site as the already-cancelled Boomtown Boom Village was going to be held on the same site as the already-cancelled Boomtown A scaled-down version of the Boomtown music festival has been cancelled because of escalating cases of Covid, the event's organisers have said. Boom Village was due to be hosted at the Matterley Estate, near Winchester, between 11 and 15 August. It was designed to be a smaller event than the usual Boomtown festival, which had already been cancelled. Organisers say they appreciate the decision might seem confusing given the imminent lifting of Covid restrictions. A statement on the Boomtown website says the risk of widespread illness and self-isolation would result in them not having enough people to safely deliver the event. "The core decision is due to the escalating cases of Covid-19 across the country," it adds. Ticket holders have been promised refunds and the full Boomtown festival is expected to return in 2022.

  22. Post shit then try and laugh it off as a jolly jest when it's not well received. M.O. since about March 2020.
  23. 'Shouldn't you be at church?' I like Lineker but that's a bit meh. Lynam did it better.
