  1. Bought our tent, sleeping bags, rucksacks, bumbags and some other bits over this week, it's starting to feel real! Any recommendations on sleeping mats/alternatives?
  2. Anthem! Saw him at Koko in Feb, hopefully the glasto crowd won’t make me feel so old 😂
  3. Oh god, Interpol is a haaard one, think I'll go for Stella is a Diver and She Was Always Down. Could have been any of about 10 songs though
  4. Never Fight a Man With a Perm! Really tough one, toss up between that, Gram Rock and Colossus
  5. Selfish for me, great track
  6. How quickly does the resale generally sell out? Funnily enough one of our group is running the marathon, so we need to try and grab one extra ticket for a friend and then quickly trek from Southampton to London to see everyone and (hopefully) celebrate a completed marathon and the final Glastonbury ticket

    Yeah, suppose it's just a shame that the actual interesting stuff goes largely unnoticed

    Problem is the music isn't actually all that "different and weird", just the image

    Fair enough, I guess when everything is combined (parental connections, rapid rise, very prevalent social presence) my grumpy old man radar goes off. Agree on Rag n Bone man tbf, absolute dross. I also feel like Lewis Capaldi is utilising the whole ‘Scottish people twitter’ thing as a marketing technique.

    Fair point, although they were making music that was more interesting. Unfortunately I wasn’t around to have commented on them at the time. Also wouldn’t Gaga in the same bag, as I don’t think she was born into a family of musical connections, in fact is well known for having spent years grafting away performing before making it bigger, in the case of Billie it certainly raises suspicion when at 17 there immediate buzz.

    Nothing! I guess what was haphazardly trying to say is that without the marketable persona should wouldn’t be nearly as popular on music alone. Again that being said it’s not a bad little album, and fair play to her for doing so well!

    You make fair points, I’m sure a lot of people giving her stick would change their tune if it was a bloke. Not sure I agree with the Bieber point, he got untold stick when he broke into fame, although maybe not specifically with the industry plant stuff. Part of it is the fact that her whole persona is very obviously modelled around being edgy/into the street wear and sound cloud rap scene, which is popular at the moment. The music however sounds fairly generic by comparison (not bad, just not particularly ‘out there’). If her album was made but someone who looks like Adele no one would bat an eyelid.

    Giving the album a listen, pretty enjoyable so far after a few tracks. I must admit the cynical side of me finds her persona somewhat annoying, rich white girl with industry connections up to her neck being marketed to the kids as an edgy alternative pop star, when the music itself is actually pretty vanilla
