  1. The track was prob quite poignant, something about Kevin & a bird, in a tree or something - but his voice sounded like a pair of football socks filled with concrete going round in a tumble dryer, it was specifically his voice that I did not like.
  2. Nick Cave is durdge (I may or may not have made that word up) Never knowing heard his stuff, 6Music played one this AM and I considered driving off the A46 just to make it stop - slight hyperbole there I do not endorse any form of self harm.
  3. Fair - I've only seen them with a plethora of drummers so can't compare ๐Ÿ˜‰
  4. Fun fact; I'd seen both incarnations more tha a handful of times before I realised they were in fact the same people ๐Ÿ˜†
  5. Arghhh had thought I probably wouldn't try for tickets for next year but Pulp I would not want to miss if they played Glastonbury!
  6. She did a short pop-up set at the Barclaycard stage - I say stage but it was basically an advert for Barclaycard with a raised section for their hype up dancers! - at Latitude which I totally missed because; terrible signal, notification came in an hour after it had happened. Bit gutted I missed it after the comments re: intimate gigs. Loving that she's popping up at lots of festivals this year.
  7. I'm so sorry you've been having such a shit time, caught a few of your posts recently & really hope you're getting through with some helpโค There is such catharsis with music that connects. I know someone commented about I Do This All The Time, the Wear Sunscreen homage & not connecting with it but there are a few lines in that track that get me every fucking time, and to see it live, wow. Such power in her words.
  8. You need to see a Soulwax set - So.Many.Drummers!
  9. They played over an hour set at Latitude so must've been tracks from 1st album inc - I'd had a few espresso martini so couldn't tell you what was played. I agree with you about the Mercury meaning so much to her, she just comes across as genuine, her music feels so honest, that's prob why the live show affected me so much. She's got a Northern sense of humour for sure! She wore the Boots advantage card dress at Latitude, partner (Northerner) was impressed at the thrifty aspect of reusing advantage cards ๐Ÿ˜…
  10. Amazing photo! She is So on fire right now๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ And your tshirt & vinyl are part of her history, without those sales she may have packed it all in & we would be without such a strong voice - both vocal opinions & singer songwriter voice.
  11. So I've searched site & there's no dedicated thread to Self Esteem, how is this even possible?! I've had to create a thread, I am not the thread creating type๐Ÿ˜‰ I purposely didn't head to John Peel tent to see her/(them to inc band), at Glasto because I knew I'd catch them at Latitude. O my bloody gosh, they blew me the fuck away! So good in so many ways. Partner was dragged along & it was 1 act I didn't care if they were enjoying or not because I fully intended to stay for the whole set - partner came away absolutely in love with Rebecca Lucy Taylor which is fair, I too am in love with Rebecca! She brought on the Queer House Party for the last track & gave them front & centre stage which was pure joy. I cried, quite a bit to be fair like tears streaming down my face & I danced, such good music & i listened, she has stuff to say & I'm fully here to listen. Would love for her to win the Mercury. Send your Self Esteem loves here ๐Ÿ˜ (or not it's a free country ๐Ÿ˜‰)
  12. Can confirm 29ยฐc beating sun, windy festival punishing - played hunt the shade for a couple hours midday then had the van awning in & out more times than I care to count, setting on out about a foot to keep a bit of shade over van doorway but not flapping so much it feels like the van sill take off.
  13. @blutarskyyour kitchen area units are <chef's kiss> absolutely stirling work!
  14. Got the van back! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ 5pm collected, home by 5.30pm van fully loaded & on way around 6.15ish! Fasted van pack ever๐Ÿ˜† have bought batteries where I'd usually use rechargeables. About an hour or so out from Latitude so half set up in dark, large gin, bed then full set up awning etc in morn. The garage threw in a free drive shaft replacement, they said they had one lying about so put it in, we think they fucked about for the 1st 10days having van, realised they'd fucked us about so when actually cracked on with work did that to keep us sweet. We do use them for all 3 VWs so spend much ยฃยฃยฃยฃ with them. Did have a windscreen washer malfunction for a few mins about an hour into journey, tbf that's a fault I knew needed doing but completely forgot about due to gearbox failure๐Ÿ™„ washer only come on when intermittent switch is in a certain position and you have to find position whilst is raining & you can't see... not the best but sometimes it works immediately. Will go back to garage when we get back.
