    Beach House are a certainty for this, right? 

    They would be a perfect fit and are around at the right time so you would think so! They are also back in America before EOTR.

    When can people with the settlers pass enter? On the website it says the 16th, but thats a Tuesday so I'm wondering if they just haven't updated it yet because in previous years wasn't it Monday?

    It’s from Monday.  I think they’ve just not updated that part of the website yet as you suggest.

    He's in Europe in June then his next date is in the US on the 27th/28th of August so I'd say it's quite unlikely he plays here 

    Yes exactly.  But I swear he was on the Paredes line up for 2022 at one point?  If so, this suggest he’s not at GM this year. 

  4. Has Mac D been pulled from European festivals?  I thought he was on some of the line ups for European festivals in August? Can’t see him now. 

    Other possibilities: Beach House, Sleaford Mods, IDLES, First Aid Kit, Super Furry Animals, Jon Hopkins, Little Simz.

    All of the above (baring SFA) are active at European festivals in August.  Nick Cave is also very active but seems too big and also playing APE so very unlikely. 

    EDIT:  I guess you could also consider Fleet Foxes, King Gizzard and Father John Misty as well but seems too soon for either one of them to return.

    A guy at work did the 100 miler and came like 15th or something. Absolute beast. I've only just got talking to him. He said it was pretty sketchy in parts: he passed some huge drops in clear daylight, but said he'd've been pretty terrified to have traversed those parts a little later in the pack when the mist set in. F*** THAT!

    At least the 50k sounds a little more...manageable! 

    Gosh - respect! They’ve changed the route slightly this year so although you have the same elevation gain, some of the more sketchy ridges have been removed on the 50k. You don’t have the horrific direct ascent up Pen Y Ole Wen for example. I think in earlier iterations of the race you also had to do Crib Goch! Should be a lot of fun in any event!

    Nice one, dude!

    Well done and congrats! Amazing placing! (I'm a back of back-er: Goal A: Finish. Goal B: Don't come last!)

    Ultra Snowdonia 50k is..............brutal, isn't it???????


    Yes I’ve heard it’s pretty tough!  10,100 ft / 3,100 metres of elevation gain in 50k!  It includes essentially two summits of Snowdon (one via most of the Rangers path and the other via the Pyg track).  There’s a 100k and 100 mile version which look totally crazy. 

  7. Thanks for the tips on the IT band issues above guys!

    How did you get on with this @lessthanwill1?

    Let us know.

    Thanks - I think my post on this wasn’t recovered after the site went down!

    I finished!  Finished 82nd out 350 odd people who entered.  Took 12 hours 15 minutes.  Throughly enjoyed it!  

    However, I have been struggling with some knee and IT Band issues following the run. I think this is largely due to body mechanics as I am so unbelievably tight in my hip/hamstrings/glutes and I think I am now paying the price.  Have been stretching and strengthening those areas with the help of a physio over the last few weeks and seem to be making some progress.  Should hopefully be back to normal in Feb and able to start training for the Ultra Trail Snowdonia 50k, which is in July.

  8. Anyone struggled with IT Band syndrome and have any tips with overcoming it?

    I’ve entered the Ultra Trail Snowdonia (50k version) in July next year. Looking forward to getting back to some proper running in the new year!

    So seems this new album is gonna be absolutely nothing like Lush. Not sure how I feel about it so far as I really loved that album, even if it wasn’t the most original sound:


    I don’t think I’m going to like it at all.  These singles have been so bland

    The final announcement for Manchester Punk Festival 2022 has been announced. I love little fests like this as it gives a chance for great acts like Crazy Arm or The JB Conspiracy to have a live audience which isn’t just 12 people in the back of a pub.


    Would have lapped this up when I was at School!  Was super into The Skints, Random Hand, JB Conspiracy and A Whilhelm Scream back in the day! 

    Love Jeff Rosenstock still.  Melt Banana would also be very cool to see!

    Ty Segall and Meatbodies are both in Europe at GM time. 

    Yes please to both of them with bells on. Ty Segall was a cancelled 2020 booking so would make sense if he was booked for 2022.

    Must be highly likely - along with Parquet Courts and Sandy Alex G who are also playing in Europe at GM time.
